Crested Cocker Breed Maintenance
Crested Cockers are not completely hypoallergenic, but produce less allergens due to their hair-like coat from their Chinese Crested side. They are moderate shedders (at most), but do need to be brushed regularly if they have a longer coat. When grooming, owners should clip around the ears, face, and feet to avoid infection or hindrance to the dog’s mobility. Crested Cockers should also be bathed monthly, and – like all dog breeds – have their teeth brushed daily and nails clipped once to twice a month. Owners should take every precaution to protect hairless areas of their dog with clothing or skin treatments to avoid topical irritation or infections.
