Thai Bangkaew Dogs teeth should be brushed weekly to remove tartar build-up and to secure fresh breath and healthy gums. Their nails should be trimmed when you hear their nails clicking on the floor.

Thai Bangkaew Dogs are dominant and they will in most cases not get along with other dogs. With correct socialization, your dog can learn how to behave with some dogs but in general, they are best fitted if they are solo pets in the household. Other smaller animals are also not advised to be near Thai Bangkaew Dog.
Thai Bangkaew Dogs are generally healthy but like most dog breeds in the world, they can suffer from some health problems. Those problems include:
- Hip dysplasia

If you want to get a puppy with the best possible health you should never buy him from an irresponsible dog breeder. Official and responsible dog breeders regularly check their breeding dogs and they will not breed dogs if there is a possibility that the puppies will end up with inherited diseases.
