English Speagle Breed Maintenance
Although both the English Toy Spaniel and the Beagle are relatively low maintenance, they do tend to shed very often; this trait is definitely passed down to the Speagle. Because of this, you may want to prepare for hair always being present on your furniture and clothes. Brushing at least three times a week with a metal comb and curry brush will be an excellent way of keeping the shedding to a minimum, as well as removing any dirt that may be lying on your dog’s fur. Bathing only needs to occur every few months of whenever your Speagle gets especially dirt. Besides brushing and bathing, be sure to clean your dog’s ears often and thoroughly dry them after bathing and swimming. This is because the Speagle has folded over ears that can easily trap excess moisture. If moisture remains inside the ears infections can occur. Thorough cleanings can help to decrease the chance of infection and irritation. Finally, clip your dog’s nails every few weeks to keep the paws healthy and snag free.
