My field spaniel can not play in the snow, because snow sticks to her hair like snow balls. is there anything we can spray on her to stop this or is there a coat (4 legs) that can help.

yes, you can try mushers cream on their pads but it won't help the long fur on the legs. A groomer worth their salt will carry it. Also, you may do what we wound up doing to our Field, we gave her a winter grooming since she is just a pet not a show dog, and trimmed her feathering back significantly to avoid the snow balling effect. I think it is important to let this dog go outside in the winter-they are hunters-so to keep them in because they get balled up is not a good decision, the dog wants to go outside. The mushers cream will stop the balling in between the pads but the higher up on the leg you go it is ineffective.
