Colonial Cocker Spaniel Breed Maintenance
This coat of this breed will need to be brushed every day and should be bathed regularly. Some owners of the English Cocker Spaniel choose to clip them in order to reduce the maintenance. The American Cocker Spaniel will need to be thoroughly groomed and trimmed every few months, with regular brushing in between. These dogs have large eyes that will need to be cleaned regularly as well. All dogs, but especially the Spaniel, with their long hanging ears, should have them wiped and cleaned regularly. About once a week should be enough to prevent infections. Remember that dogs with long and hanging ears are more prone to problems, so this is an important step. Dogs should also have their teeth brushed about two or three times per week. Toothbrushing every day is the best way to keep teeth and gums healthy. Cut your pet’s nails as needed. This may be once or twice a month, but it mainly depends on the dog’s activity level, as dogs who are more active can wear them doing naturally.
