Aussalier Breed Maintenance
The coats of the Australian Shepherd and the Cavalier King Charles are quite different in texture and length, but their grooming requirements are similar. Bathing is generally kept on an as needed basis and they should be brushed several times a week to prevent tangles and matting. If the coat is more reminiscent of the silky Cavalier coat, conditioner should be used to keep it shiny and silky, but if it is the slightly coarser fur of the Aussie, then conditioner is not necessary. Cavalier King Charles Spaniels also grow fur on their feet which requires brushing and trimming, and your Aussalier may inherit this trait.
Australian Shepherds and Cavalier King Charles Spaniels often suffer from hip dysplasia, hypothyroidism, and epilepsy. Secure pet health insurance today to avoid high veterinary care costs.
