German Spaniel Breed Maintenance
The German Spaniel is not a hypoallergenic breed and does require weekly brushing to keep his coat in good condition. He should be brushed with a pin brush and a metal comb. Tangles should be worked through carefully and a de-tangling spray can also be used. The hair between his toes will need to be trimmed often to keep dirt and debris from getting caught and causing lameness. His ears will need to be checked each week and cleaned as needed to keep infections from occurring. Trim his nails as needed, usually every two to three weeks. He should be bathed every three months or so using a mild shampoo. He can develop a strong doggy smell and can have a bath using dry shampoo in between full baths. Since he can have skin problems, speak with your veterinarian regarding which shampoo is best for your German Spaniel. Set up a routine dental plan for him to ensure he has healthy teeth and gums.
