Cockerbull Breed Maintenance
While the Bulldog is known for drooling and the Cocker Spaniel is known for being high maintenance, the Cockerbull is the best of both worlds in these categories. Because he does not have the same squashed face as the Bulldog, drooling is not typically a problem. Also, his fur will not be as long and time consuming to groom as the Cocker Spaniel. This being said, the Cockerbull will have a tendency to shed and will need to be brushed a couple times a week with a rubbery curry brush and a comb. Doing so will remove any dirt and loose hair that may be lying on the body and keep shedding to a minimum. On top of this, your dog should receive a couple of baths a month with a gentle shampoo to keep their fur nice and clean and any doggy odor away. Be sure to speak with your vet about a shampoo that will work best for your Cockerbull as both the Bulldog and the Cocker Spaniel have sensitive skin that is prone to allergic breakouts. Besides brushing and bathing, be sure to dry your dog’s ears thoroughly after bathing or swimming to avoid any infections due to leftover moisture and trim your dog’s nails every few weeks or so to keep the feet healthy.
