Affen Spaniel Breed Maintenance
Affen Spaniels have a relatively high grooming requirement. Due to their medium length, dense coat it is highly recommended that owners brush their Affen Spaniel with a stiff bristly brush at least once per day in order to keep the fur tangle free and healthy. Affen Spaniels should visit a groomer roughly every 4 to 5 weeks in order to get their fur trimmed around the footpads and ears. As with all dogs, ear cleaning, teeth cleaning and nail trimming should be done on a regular basis. Particular attention should be given to the ears; their flop-sided positioning may allow bacteria to build-up. Bathing should be kept to a minimum in order to prevent loss of natural oils from the coat.
