Cavottish Breed Maintenance
These dogs shed a lot and will need regular coat care, such as periodic clippings and daily brushings. The coat of this breed can be different since they may take on the fur of either parent. The Cavalier King Charles is a fairly low maintenance pup and should be brushed a few times every week in order to keep the coat clean, shiny and tangle free. They will need to be bathed when necessary, which may be more often than others since they are quite active and adventurous outdoors. These dogs do not require trimming, but some owners choose to trim the fur around the feet to keep them neat. Scottish Terriers can be more of a challenge to groom, and will need weekly brushing. Use a hound glove, a stiff brush and a wide tooth comb for the face, as well as scissors. Bathe them as needed, but not too often as it can irritate and dry out their skin. Their coats willI need to be clipped either once every eight weeks if you choose to keep their fur short, or a few times per year if kept long. They can also react badly to flea bites and should be brushed with a flea comb. All dogs need their teeth brushed every day, or at least two or three times per week. Clean out your pet’s ears weekly, and trim the nails once or twice per month.
