A number of things make it important to look after the coat of your Springer Spaniel. They have a lot of energy, they’re renowned for it. Lots of energy means that on their very long walks they get up to all sorts of mischief, making their coats a mess.
Springer Spaniels can also be a rather fluffy pooch, their coats often suffer from matting and knots, especially those dangly ears. The ears are another area that requires attention, a warm haven and breeding ground for bacteria if they get wet or not kept clean.
If your Springer Spaniel is a working dog, you’ll know what a mess they can get into during their adventures.
Regular, at least weekly. brushing their coats will prevent much of this. Giving them a good bath when needed and of course check their ears for redness or excess dirt.
This all adds up to a rather high maintenance dog, albeit magnificent and beautifully natured. But then, all dogs need grooming.
Springer Spaniels are double coated, an outer layer which is water proof and a softer undercoat. They will also moult and shed these coats a couple of times per year – and this can be a nightmare for your home.
