English Cocker Spaniel Care
Caring for English Cocker Spaniels is quite time consuming. But only if you do not spare the time and effort to care for your pet, you can be proud of the beauty of the English Cocker Spaniel.
English Cocker Spaniel Hair Care
The wool of the English Cocker Spaniel is easily tangled, so it needs to be combed regularly. To care for the English Cocker Spaniel, you will need a massage brush (soft, with soft bristles). The fallen wool is first taken apart with your fingers, and then carefully combed with a metal comb. Be careful not to hurt your pet.
The hair at the paw pads, as well as around the ear holes, is cut. The hair between the fingers is not cut. To cut hair, buy scissors with rounded safety ends. First, the puppy needs to be accustomed to the form of scissors and their clicking sound, to let the sniff out the instrument – so it will be easier for the baby to keep calm during a haircut.
English cocker spaniels are bathed more often than dogs of many other breeds, but in general, the frequency of washing depends on what lifestyle the dog leads: sometimes 1 time in 3 months is enough, and sometimes you need to do it much more often. Before water procedures, the pet should be thoroughly combed. Wash the English Cocker Spaniel with warm water using a special dog shampoo. When watering the face of a four-legged friend and genital area, weaken the pressure of the soul. Never pour water into the dog’s ear. The shampoo from the English Cocker Spaniel is washed off twice, then check again if there are any signs of foam on the coat. If left, rinse your pet again. Wash the dog until the water drains completely clear. After washing, wipe the cocker with a towel (thoroughly, but gently) and finish drying with a hairdryer.
But the English Cocker Spaniels do not fade too much compared to other long-haired dogs.
