Grooming Springer Tummy

Springer Spaniel Grooming

You will probably notice that over time the fur on your Springers tummy will grow out so Grooming Springer Tummy has to be done regularly, and as they run through long wet grass so you will want to trim this back and keep it short needs to be done regularly as it can get very muddy and mucky.

I also find that if I keep George's tummy trimmed short then he is much easier to keep him clean after a walk. Its much easier to clean a shorter tummy is much easier to dry with a towel

So get hold of your trimming scissors as pictured above as they trim the fur nice and neatly with a layered look. A normal pair of scissors will give it a choppy look so it is worth investing in these scissors.

Get your springer to lie on their back and trim from the outside in, taking care of sensitive bits like teats and other sticky out pieces.

Once the tummy is done I also work on the rear end as you can see in the pictures here and groom the feathers around their bottom so that burs and mud don't get tangled up.
