  • Care

    Continental Toy Spaniels require weekly brushing. Pay particular attention to the longer hair on their legs, buttocks, and behind their ears to keep it from matting. This breed has fast-growing nails that need regular trimming. All dogs need dental care. Start a regular dental care routine when they're young. Brushing their teeth and scheduling professional cleanings ensures good oral hygiene throughout their lives.

    Feed Continental Toy Spaniels a high-quality dog food that's appropriate for their age and breed size. To prevent them from becoming overweight, keep an eye on their food intake. Portion out their meals with a measuring cup to avoid over-feeding and limit treats to no more than 10% of their daily calories.

  • Disorders

    Always visit a professional veterinarian if you believe your dog may have health issues.
