Springer Spaniel Sheepdog Breed Maintenance
The Springer Spaniel Sheepdog falls into the high maintenance and shedding category, getting a constant shedding trait from the Old English parent. This will likely require that she be brushed two or three times a week, if not daily, to remove loose hair, debris, mats and tangles and to distribute the vital oils throughout her coat. She will not likely need to be bathed except when she's dirty or has a doggy smell to avoid loss of those vital oils. She is in the high category for drooling, a contribution from the Old English parent and low category for doggy smell. She will need to have her ears checked on a weekly basis, cleaning them as needed with a cotton ball and an approved canine ear wash solution. Check her toenails often, trimming them at least monthly or as needed unless she is able to keep them worn down with her normal exercise activities. She should have her teeth brushed at home two or three times a week to avoid the development of periodontal disease and the tooth loss which follows.
