The perfect tools for Cocker Spaniel Grooming
Cocker Spaniel breeds are a unique and wonderful animal, originally from Spain they are quite noble dogs fun and full of energy, but very reliable and devoted to their masters. The English Cocker Spaniels were initially bred as hunting dogs many centuries ago, then were transported to the US and bred down in size to become smaller American Cocker Spaniels.
Both of these dogs have very similar features though it is their size and hair that separates them; the American Cocker Spaniel is smaller and has much longer hair. Cocker Spaniel grooming is very important and depending on which breed you have extra attention should be paid to the coat and the ears.
On both of the spaniels their hair grows short on their backs and then starts to grow more rapidly towards the bottom half sometimes even covering their legs; this should be trimmed occasionally for comfort and cleanliness. Because the Cocker Spaniels have such long wide ears, this warm, dark and moist area can become a breeding ground for mites, ticks and even fleas; ear infections are especially common in this dog.
Grooming often is essential to your Cocker Spaniel health levels and there are 2 options available to you, you can pay professional groomers to do the job for you or buy a few special Cocker Spaniel grooming tools and do it yourself.
