Field Spaniel Dog Grooming Instruction - Brushing Hair and Coat
Most dog's hair and coats need some attention. The Field Spaniel dog grooming instruction for caring for your dog's hair or coat is as follows:

  • The Field Spaniel has a single, water-proof coat that can be either flat or slightly wavy, silky or dense. Whatever the texture of your particular dog or puppy's coat, it should be groomed thoroughly on a weekly basis to keep the coat looking healthy and shiny. The Field Spaniel has fairly long hair which can tangle quite easily so grooming is very important as it will help to reduce the knots and tangles.
  • Use a pin brush or comb, start at the head of the dog & work through tangles carefully
  • Go over the coat with a slicker brush always following the direction of hair growth
  • Take your time when grooming & take care around any delicate areas

Field Spaniel Dog Grooming Instruction - Bathing your Dog
Bathing your dog is very important for its health and hygiene. During bathing check your dog for lumps, bumps, parasites, fleas and skin irritations or allergies. Field Spaniel Bathing instruction is as follows:

  • Wash your dog or puppy when they are dirty or smell!
  • Gather bathing equipment and place bathing tools and shampoo near to bathing area
  • Place a mat and towel next to bath
  • Check the water temperature of the bath - ensure that a minimal amount of water is used
  • Gradually place the dog in the bath - be aware that this may frighten your pet
  • Gently shampoo your pet - be careful of delicate areas such as eyes and ears
  • Rinse shampoo and towel dry. Then brush the hair

Field Spaniel Dog Grooming Instruction - Trimming Nails
Some dogs do not need their nails trimmed as they are kept short by general activities. However, should your dog's nails become long then they should be trimmed. It is important to know exactly what you are doing, as cutting too deep into your Field Spaniel dog's nails can cause damage and pain. Written instruction is not enough as the risk of hurting your Field Spaniel is too high.

  • Your vet can help initially by demonstrating how to trim your dog's nails and supervise your first attempt
  • Spend some time touching your dog's paws and gently squeezing the area around the nails in order to familiarize them with this sensation
  • Seek advice from your vet about the most appropriate nail clippers for your pet
