If possible, it is recommended that you take your dog to a professional salon three to four times a year to remove excess hair and trim. You should also brush your pet’s ears regularly.


Dogs of this breed are naturally eager to learn and quickly grasp what is expected of them. But since they themselves are willing to take on the role of your teacher, pay attention to understanding and consistency during class.


To make the English Cocker Spaniel feel great, literally three walks a day are enough for him. But this dog also needs regular walks outside the city, and he just loves to swim.
