Cavanese Breed Maintenance
The Cavanese will need a moderate amount of grooming to keep looking good. They should be brushed two or three times a week with a stiff bristled brush to remove loose hair and get rid of any mats and dirt. Brushing also stimulates the skin keeping the coat looking healthy. Depending on which parent breed your pet most takes after you may need to trim the fur. Longer haired dogs looking more like the Havanese may need their coats trimmed more often and brushed more regularly to get rid of any knots but if your dog takes after the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, you may just need to trim the feet. Try to brush your dog’s teeth daily and check ears for any dirt which can then be wiped gently with the moist ball of cotton wool, taking care to make sure moisture is not remaining in the ears.
