Spanierd Breed Maintenance
The Spanierd will likely have two issues that require special maintenance: long hair and floppy ears. He will need daily brushing. Be sure to comb through the thick, dense undercoat he is likely to inherit. You will need to wipe out his ears weekly with a damp cotton ball. Check for redness or a strange odor as these signs are indicative of an ear infection. Brush his teeth two or three times a week in order to prevent tartar build-up and bad breath. Brush his teeth daily if you wish to prevent tooth decay. Trim his nails every two weeks unless he wears them down naturally. If you can hear his nails clicking on a tile or granite floor, it is time to trim the nails.
