Well, another stuff that you learn from experience.
Owning an English Cocker Spaniel need lots of patience and work especially when one is wearing an E.Collar.
So far I have had 5 sessions of blow-drying of AL-E's fur around his ear and neck (especially the area which is covered with the E.Collar). Five sessions has been the highest so far in a SINGLE day.
For all readers, please be informed that if you have a dog/cat fixed with an E.Collar and if it's ear/fur is wet (the covered area), you must do this procedure:
1. Wipe the wet part with a towel.
2. Blow dry.
Otherwise, you may visiting the doc/vet for fungus attack issue (Note: Sometimes ticks love to attack moist area of a dog/cat). The worst that can happen is 'tick-fever' which is very FATAL for a dog.
Hope the above helps (for those who happens to own a pet i.e. dog/cat).
Note: My AL-E is not too keen to drink water from a bottle (the bottle is fixed with a device to assist drinking - it is solely designed for dogs). AL-E loves water. AL-E drinks at least a litre of water everyday.
