Grooming a cocker spaniel. Home grooming.

In this video, I demonstrate how I groom Arrow, my 11 year old English-American Cocker Spaniel: 1) Combing/Brushing (~10 min) – 0:15 2) Clipping (~20 min) …

    That poor dog ears looked as if they had not been cleaned for years…..they should never be allowed to get that dirty.

    Cocker Spaniels do not drop a lot of hair. In fact they probably drop less hair than most breeds (apart from poodles and bichons which have wool)  and they are very soft and lovely to pet. They also don't stink or produce much oil compared to most other dogs. They just need to be clipped every 8 weeks or so and bathed every once in a while. They are very relational and playful and will do anything for a ball (unlike most dogs who are more interested in food) and can be taught any trick easily. They never seem to grow old in the head, always a playful cuddly puppy inside. My fave dog by far :3

    Nice video and dog is very calm…but you should clean the ears more often judging on how dark the first swipe was. You should do it at least every week. These dogs can have ear infection easliy if you don't clean them regularly.

    Thanx for the video, it was very useful and yes, they are the mkst adorable and yours is a very handsome one, too! If you feel like sharing your experience of cleaning: all that hair remains on the doggy so that he can lose it around, all day long and how you keep your house still proper…..i would appreciate it a lot! Thanx again!

    Sorry but you really need to clean your dogs ears more often, I have 2 cockers, one of which builds dirt quickly in her ears and I have never seen them that bad.

    My 14 y/o Cocker (mix) just snapped at his groomer 🙁 He's even worse with me whenever I try to do anything to him. He's never liked being picked up and has bitten me (more than once) recently when I have tried (to bathe his muddy feet, was only a few inches of water). I've been getting him trimmed/groomed for probably 10+ years now. He likes the shorter cut & I get it done every 6 weeks. I don't know what I'm going to do now that she has refused to groom him again (I don't blame her) as she is afraid of causing him harm. My only option is to sedate him as I feel no other groomer, even my vet, will get him to behave. I am so worried. Your video has helped me in that I have a regular looking hair brush (made for dogs) and I think I need to get the wire kind so it can catch his fur & detangle him better. My biggest fear is how I'm going to clip his nails & do his ears. She wasn't even able to remove the cotton from his ears when I picked him up & that was a struggle to get him still long enough for me to remove them 🙁 TG he is Blonde dog and I can see the pinks under his nails. I think I should get one of those clippers with a kind of safety guard on it so you can't clip too much (because he WILL be squirming). I am not worried about trimming his coat, as my groomer did, as much as keeping him clean and tangled free. His eyes run a lot, and he always gets stuff in his hair (on his head, muzzle and rear end). I will keep doing my research. Thanks for posting this video.

    Leonard – I used to have to clean my cocker's ears all the time with a variety of medicated cleaners… and she hated it!!  and a few days later they were dirty/infected again.  She was always scratching her ears.  Until I started to using a pinch of corn starch baby powder mixed with a pinch of athlete's foot powder and gently massaged into a clean dry ears.  I even use a q-tip to gently massage the powder down the sides of her ears. she stopped scratching them and I check her ears every few months – but they are still clean over a year later!  I'll put a little powder in each ear every few months just for good measure. And my cocker loves it now when I clean her ears! 🙂  Even the vet said she has perfect ears, no sign of infection!!  you might want to give it a try. :))

    Great video… My friends got me a chocolate cocker spaniel, at the moment she's 1 month old and I'm getting ready by researching and I found your video!!! So, how often do I have to do grooming?? How often you cut its hair, have you ever done that by yourself?? 
    Your dog is so calm, you trained it very well!! Any tips?? 

    Hugs from Guatemala 🙂

    Omg I used to have a cocker spaniel and she was never this obedient XD. She hated being brushed so one day we weren't looking and she chewed all the pin things out of it.. I guess we forgot to put it away?? XD

    If you take your dog out for regular walks on pavement, you do not need to EVER trim their nails. Not to mention Cockerspaniels are so much more beautiful with their tails on ~

    I bought a "Wet Brush" for my Cocker to detangle his fur and he LOVES it, it also give him a good little massage at the same time as the brissels have that plastic cover on the tip!!!

    To all the haters stupid comments: they obviously dont own a cocker and shouldnt say anything. My only thing to add is my dog likes warm solution instilled during bath time and massaged in from the outside of the ear (while the solution works its way within the canal) so that the inner canal becomes saturated.

    I've noticed that every (western) hunting dog breed I know seems to have hanging ears. Is it just because they're all related/descended from the same strain of dogs, or is there an actual advantage to having droopy ears? The only thing I see is an increased risk of ear infections…
