Breed Review: American Cocker Spaniel (18 Pics)

#16 The American Cocker Spaniel is not a breed for the lazy.

Of course, you can take your pet to a grooming salon several times a week, where a specialist will work with him while you flip through magazines and sip coffee. But in this case, the maintenance of the dog will result in a tangible amount for the budget. If these expenses do not suit you, learn to care for the fur of your four-legged friend at home.

#17 The first thing to do is to get a slicker, brushes, combs and mats because you will have to comb the satin hair of the American Cocker Spaniel every day.

And do not be fooled by the fact that puppies have a rarer coat. It will pass with age. In general, the procedure of brushing for dogs is extremely tedious, so the sooner you teach your puppy to it, the better for you.

#18 No matter how well-bred your dog may be, during walks it will stain the “fur coat” to one degree or another by attaching debris and road dust to it.

American cockers are supposed to be washed more often than other decorative breeds: on average, once every two weeks. For bathing, it is better to choose kits of pet shampoo and rinse, designed for long-haired dogs. After washing, to facilitate combing, it is recommended to rinse the pet's fur in a weakly concentrated solution of acetic acid (can be replaced with citric acid). This will give the hair a noble shine and protect the animal's skin from parasites.
