Scottish Cocker Breed Maintenance
Your Scottish Cocker hybrid falls into the moderate category of maintenance and shedding. Because only the Scottie parent contributes a hypoallergenic coat to the bio mix, your hybrid may or may not be hypoallergenic, a concern for those who have family members who are asthmatic or who have breathing problems. Her moderate shedding level will require vacuuming more often as well as brushing of her coat once or twice a week to keep it free of loose hair, debris, mats and tangles. Brushing will also distribute the natural oils throughout her coat, keeping it healthy and beautiful. Bathing your hybrid should only be done as needed to preserve these vital natural oils. She is in the low category for drooling and smell. Be sure to check her ears weekly, cleaning them as needed with a cotton ball and an approved canine ear wash solution. While you've got in your lap checking her ears, take a look at her toenails, trimming them as needed unless she is able to keep them worn down with her normal exercise activities. Your Scottish Cocker, like all canines, will need to have her teeth brushed at home two to three times a week to help prevent the development of periodontal disease and the loss of teeth which can accompany this gum disease.
