Cava Inu Breed Maintenance
The Cava Inu has moderate grooming requirements. He is not difficult to maintain; grooming really depends on the type of coat he inherits. Generally, the Cava Inu does not shed as much as his Cavalier King Charles Spaniel parent. However, the Shiba Inu parent breed is prone to a good deal of hair loss during seasonal shedding. Because of this, there is a chance that your hybrid will need brushing at least once a week, but he will need a bath only when he gets dirty. Use a soft, bristle brush to work natural oils through his coat, which will keep it soft. 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 and bad breath; however, daily brushing is optimal for preventing gum disease. Trim your Cava Inu’s nails at least every two weeks. It is important to begin a grooming regimen with your Cava Inu at an early age so that he or she becomes accustomed to it.
