The Cocker Spaniel is extremely popular around the world and is a very loyal companion dog. Kind and sweet are the most pleasing characteristics of the Cocker Spaniel, but it is rare to find one that is also active and alert, optimistic and intelligent. As a parent of a Cocker Spaniel, being loving and patient is a must. Do you know how to be a good Cocker Spaniel parent? Here are some aspects of the Cocker Spaniel for you:
Cocker Spaniel Daily Feeding Knowledge
Diet: In the Cocker Spaniel’s diet, of which meat is more available than in other breeds, it is generally necessary to feed 250-350 grams of meat per day, plus equal amounts of dry veggies and cookies, and give the right amount of water.
Exercise: In management, the Cocker Spaniel’s activity level should be emphasized because it is originally a bird hunting dog that lives in the wild. It is advisable for owners of this dog to take it out for a walk 2-3 times a day, usually in the morning after waking up, and again in the evening or afternoon. If you keep him in the house for a long time and don’t give him enough activity, he will get irritable and even appear dull and sick.
Grooming: Brush or comb his coat daily. The long, dense coat on the chest, abdomen, and legs of a dog like Cocker Spaniel, which often drags on the floor, can stick to dust or dirt and even form clumps if not groomed regularly, which not only affects its beauty, but can also be infected with germs and diseases.
Cleaning: In addition to grooming them regularly, you should also bathe them every once in a while. You can also dry-clean them. The dry cleaning is done by spraying a talcum powder or conditioner and then slowly combing the coat several times from the roots with a comb, which keeps it soft and fluffy and not tangled into knots, and prevents lice from growing in the coat, making the dog healthy and active. Every once in a while, do clear tartar and earwax for it, as well as wash its eyes with light salt water, which will prevent disease from developing in the five senses because of uncleanliness.
Mental: You should also always pay attention to whether there are any abnormalities in his activities such as eating, sleeping and walking, and whether his mental state is out of whack, and if he is found to be ill, he should be treated promptly.
Training: It is also very important to train the Cocker Spaniel and not to let it develop naturally, otherwise it will easily develop bad habits of capriciousness and stubbornness.
