Preparing Your Cocker Spaniel For Grooming

Here are some hints to make a trip to the groomer easier on both you and your dog:

  1. Teach the dog to stand on command and to accept the attentions of a stranger without cringing or growling.Obedience classes are wonderful for this good manners exercise, which is an integral part of the Canine Good Citizen test.
  2. Comb your dog regularly to prevent tangles and mats. Or schedule more frequent visits to the groomer. Matted hair can cause great pain to the dog and to the groomer who gets bitten .
  3. Crate train your dog, so he'll sit quietly while drying and waiting for your return.
  4. Warn the groomer of any bad habits that could interfere with successful grooming.

A groomer is not a miracle worker. She cannot take a poorly maintained dog and turn it into a show-stopper in one visit. You should maximize your chances of satisfaction by teaching the dog to accept the attentions of strangers and keeping the coat free of mats and tangles.
