American Cocker Spaniel Grooming

You will need to groom this breed regularly.10/10/ 10

You will need to groom this dog regularly. in order to keep his long beautiful coat looking its best. This dog sheds a lot so in order to control his hair removal you will need to brush his coat daily. A pin style brush will work well. You may wish to ask your vet, some Cocker Spaniel owners say the best time to brush your dog's fur is after a bath. The logic goes that the fur will not break similar to how we get split ends. Again, ask your vet for advise.
In addition, you will need to take your American Cocker Spaniel to the dog spa at least monthly for regular cutting and clipping. Keep this in mind when deciding on the dog breed that you sit you best. Anticipate the added financial costs you will incur for these spa and grooming visits.

As with all breeds, it is a good idea for you to brush your dog's teeth at least once a day. It is okay to get a dental bone type product to supplement the daily dental brushing. Also, like our teeth, you may want to brush your dog's teeth after he eats a few dog treats. Some treats may have just a little bit of sugar in them so it's a good idea to brush.

Daily walks are essential for this breed. American Cocker Spaniels need walks plus ideally a safe fenced in yard for a good 30 minutes a day of just running around.
