Welshies are known for their beautiful coats (and the tumbleweeds of fur they leave behind when they molt). To keep your Welsh Springer Spaniel looking their best, brush them with a soft brush at least once a week—and more often during periods of seasonal shedding. If fur tangles or mats form, use a metal comb to work them out. Because of their long ears, Welshies may be more susceptible to ear infections. For this reason, check and clean their ears regularly to prevent infections from developing. Maintaining good dental hygiene is essential for any dog's long-term health. In addition to professional dental cleanings, establish an at-home care routine that includes regular teeth brushing.
It's important to monitor the amount of food you give your Welsh Springer Spaniel. Reduce the portions or restrict calories if your pup gains weight. Also, remember that giving too many treats in addition to regular meals can contribute to obesity.
