How To Properly Groom Your Cocker Spaniel

The Cocker Spaniel is not only adorable but is also a very popular dog breed in the United States and other countries around the world. If you happen to own one, you know just how wonderful a family member he is. This is a loveable breed that has lots of energy and is extremely enthusiastic. You also know that they require lots of walks in order for them to fulfill their energy requirements. You also know that they are very easy to train since they simply don't have the temperament to want to disobey their human companions. If you haven't had your Cocker Spaniel for long however, you probably might need a little help on how to keep him groomed.

To begin with, you should know that he will need to general grooming about once a week and will need a full grooming probably every six to eight weeks. To groom your dog you will need some electric clippers in order to groom his back end, especially if he's a house dog. If he's a show dog you don't want to trim his back hairs though.

It's probably a good idea if you get some training either by taking a class or finding the info online to learn how to brush your dog's top and bottom coats if you have never done this before. You should take a slicker brush a long with a steel comb to brush out his coat. It's important that you brush the undercoat all the way through. You do this by lifting up his topcoat and you'll be able to see the undercoat that needs to be brushed.

Before you give you dog a bath you will need to make sure that you get rid of all the hair that is shedding and if there are any mats you should cut those off as well. Because they have double coats they do have a tendency to get mats easily. It's important to cut them off before the bath because the mat will only get worse when you go to wash him.

You should give him a bath as needed and you can even use dry shampoo if you don't want to always do the wet baths. Just make sure that whatever shampoo you use has a lot of protein in it. You should also make sure that you have a cream rinse to put on your dog so that the coat will have a lot of sheen to it.

Make sure to include looking inside your dog's ears to check for infections or anything they may have gotten from outside, especially grass seeds. Your Cocker Spaniel is extremely susceptible to ear infections, especially during the warmer months of summer. So it's important that you check their ears all of the time. Also make sure to constantly look for burrs and ticks that might get in their ears as well. These things can cause your poor baby to go deaf if not caught.
