Cav-A-Mo Breed Maintenance
The Cav-a-Mo has moderate grooming requirements. He will need brushing at least once a week, as well as a bath when dirty - just be sure to brush his coat smooth before getting it wet so that tangles are easier to remove. The Cav-a-Mo typically inherits the soft, silky coat of the American Eskimo dog parent, and this means he may experience matting if his coat is not regularly brushed. Use a soft, bristle brush to work any tangles and mats out of his hair. You may need to brush him two or three times a week during shedding season. Brushing the teeth of your dog two or three times a week will help prevent tooth decay, injury to the gum or periodontal disease. An annual check up of the teeth is recommended. Your Cav-a-Mo's nails may need to be trimmed every two or three weeks so that painful cracks and tears do not occur.
