English Toy Spaniel Breed Maintenance
Your English Toy Spaniel needs to be brushed every day or every other day with a firm bristle brush and a metal comb if needed to remove mats. With the long, silky hair, the hair of your English Toy Spaniel can get matted and will need to be carefully untangled by hand, using your fingers to gently separate the tangled fur. Bathing is only necessary every few months or if your dog gets especially dirty. In these conditions, use a mild dog shampoo and conditioner recommended by your veterinary care provider. Make sure you check your dog’s nails, eyes, and ears at this time for dirt or debris and clean as recommended by your veterinarian. Although the English Toy Spaniel would rather lay on the couch than exercise, it is important to take her out for a walk every day. However, extreme weather (too hot or too cold) can be bad for your dog and you should always provide plenty of water if she is going to be outside for a while. They are great for apartment living due to their small size and infrequent, quiet bark.
