Cocker Spaniel

Brush and comb your Cocker Spaniel regularly, if possible don't let it get matted because with a well brushed dog, you only need to make a few adjustments by hand (paws, ears, anus, belly, etc.). However, if your Cocker Spaniel is matted or knotted, clipping can save your dog a lot of plucking and tugging.

In general, a Cocker Spaniel will not be clipped except on the neck (1.8 mm), inner ear (1.8 mm) and the paws.
