Pont-Audemer Spaniel Breed Maintenance
The Pont-Audemer needs their beautiful coat to be brushed regularly to avoid matting of the hair. A working dog will need a bath more often than a companion dog, as they get quite muddy working the marshes. This dog is quiet and relaxed and is happy to sit and enjoy a grooming session. The Pont-Audemer likes to be with their owner and family and bonds strongly to them, so any attention even if it is only grooming will be happily accepted. If bathing this dog, make sure to use a special dog shampoo to protect the natural oils on the coat and skin that protects the dog from the weather. Their long hanging ears will require frequent checking to avoid infection. Clean gently with a damp cloth to wipe away any debris or build up of oil. The teeth are another area to pay attention to; the Pont-Audemer should have their teeth brushed two to three times a week to maintain their health. And lastly, check that their toe nails are not too long - a gentle snip off the ends may be required for the companion dog.
