Cavapoo Breed Maintenance
The Cavapoo is recognized as high maintenance when grooming. Their coats need more than a regular weekly brushing to keep them at their best. They have a low odor so if yours is smelling it may be that the hair is too long and may have dirt caught in it. Regular bathing and trimming can overcome this. Also check the ears, as the Cavapoo is prone to ear infections, and that condition can produce a nasty smell. It is advisable to get qualified groomers to trim your dog unless you have that experience. Toenails should regularly be inspected to ensure no snags in the fur. They do need clipping often to keep their coat manageable. Get your young Cavapoo used to having his teeth brushed, ears wiped out, and feet handled (for nail clipping), start with short sessions and slowly build up. Praise them extravagantly when they do well, and you will have a dog that enjoys its weekly health check and maintenance program.
