Welsh Springer Spaniel Breed Maintenance
When the Welshie’s coat is groomed properly it is shiny and stunning. This breed sheds seasonally and needs to be brushed every time he comes back from hunting (to prevent matting) and at least twice a week. The best tools for the job are typically a stainless steel comb and a slicker brush. Pay close attention to the feathering found along the legs, body, and ears with the slicker brush. You can then use the comb on the rest of the body to remove any dirt and loose hair lying around. Besides brushing, it is important to perform frequent cleanings for your dog’s ears as folded ears tent to hold in more moisture, which welcomes infection. This is especially true if your Welshie loves to swim; be sure to dry the ears well when he is finished! Nails should be trimmed every couple of weeks and feet kept healthy. This is important for a hunting dog as they really rely on their feet to help them perform their job well.
