The coat should ideally be brushed every day to remove dead hair, matting and any foreign bodies, this is particularly important in the Spinone that has a soft or thick coat as there is more likelihood that matting may occur.  Hand stripping will help to keep the coat at a manageable length. 

There are many helpful tools now on the market that can be used instead of hand stripping.  If your dog's coat starts falling out excessively it could be that the diet requires changing.  If there is a problem with the skin seek your vet's advice. 

In the white and orange Spinone their coat can become an orangey brown if they are chewing or licking excessively.  Dogs especially require washing around the penis and the tops of their legs once or twice a week.

Your breeder will be able to give advice on grooming equipment and where to purchase it from.
