Silky Cocker Breed Maintenance
Though the Maltese lacks a double coat and is considered hypoallergenic, the Cocker Spaniel does shed. The Silky Cocker, therefore, is not considered hypoallergenic, and the breed is known to shed moderately. To keep this dog’s coat in good condition and to prevent mats and tangles, it needs to be brushed daily. Brushing regularly with a slicker brush and metal comb is highly recommended. If you add a Silky Cocker to your family, you should also expect to make regular grooming appointments. These dogs need to be bathed regularly and should be groomed professionally no less than every few months. You may also need to clean the eye area frequently to prevent staining. The claws should also be trimmed and the ears and teeth should be cleaned on a regular basis.
