Field Spaniel Breed Maintenance
Unlike many of its Spaniel cousins, the Field Spaniel’s coat is much easier to maintain and does not require any special groom considerations. Weekly brushing will help remove any loose or dead hair as well as keep the adorning feather features looking well. Like most dogs, the Field Spaniel only requires bathing and shampooing when needed and should be avoided if unnecessary. It is a good practice to brush your Field Spaniel’s teeth and mouth with cleaning tools approved by your veterinarian at least once a week. Teeth cleaning will significantly help reduce the potential for bad breath and mouth disease. Your Field Spaniel also requires a lot of exercise and needs room to run. A fenced in yard is ideal, so urban living without much space is not recommended. If your Field Spaniel becomes bored, he might chew or bark excessively. Depending on your dog’s activity level, Field Spaniels should eat 1,5 to 2 cups of dry food twice daily. The Field Spaniel does not have any breed specific allergies or food sensitivities, but it is always good practice to watch for changes in dietary habits and diet-related health conditions.
