Sprocker Wellbeing

Concentrate on making sure your Sprocker has plenty of exercise, plenty of mental stimulation and most of all love!

Your Sprocker’s wellbeing is just as important as your own, here are 3 tips to get you started!

Regular Exercise

Sprockers are energetic and active dogs that require regular exercise to keep them physically and mentally stimulated. Engage in daily activities such as walks, runs, and play sessions to help fulfill their exercise needs. Remember to adjust the exercise intensity and duration based on your spaniel’s age and fitness level.

Mental Stimulation

In addition to physical exercise, sprockers also thrive on mental stimulation. Engage their minds through training sessions, obedience exercises, or interactive play. Puzzle toys and treat-dispensing toys can provide mental challenges and keep them occupied. Regular mental stimulation helps prevent boredom and destructive behavior while promoting their overall wellbeing.

Grooming Care

Sprockers often have beautiful, long coats that require regular grooming. Establish a grooming routine that includes brushing their coats to prevent matting and tangles. Pay attention to their ears, as spaniels are prone to ear infections due to their floppy ears. Clean their ears regularly and consult with a veterinarian if you notice any signs of irritation or infection.

Remember, always provide your sprocker with a balanced diet, fresh water, regular veterinary check-ups, and lots of love and attention. By prioritising their exercise, mental stimulation, and grooming needs, you can ensure the overall wellbeing of your beloved sprocker.
