  • Care

    Kooikers are very low-maintenance when it comes to grooming. Simply brush them once a week, and occasionally trim the hair around their paws. Because their coats naturally repel dirt, baths are rarely necessary. Kooikerhondjes' long ears are more susceptible to ear infections. So, check and clean your dog's ears routinely to prevent infections. Your Kooiker's nails may wear down during daily activity. But you should still trim them periodically to prevent pain and other problems that arise from overly long nails. Finally, maintaining good dental hygiene is essential for the overall long-term health of all dogs. In addition to scheduling professional dental cleanings, establish an at-home dental care routine that includes regular teeth brushing and dental chews or treats.
