Cavachon Dog Training and Grooming
When a puppy starts to lose their fluffy puppy coat and their adult coat starts grows through, they are quite high maintenance when it comes to keeping things tidy and looking good. Cavachons are thought to be “low shedding” but this does not mean their coats don’t need frequent and regular brushing. Because some dogs suffer from tear staining quite badly, it’s also important to keep their eyes nice and clean by regularly wiping them with a damp, soft cloth.
They also need to be professionally groomed trimmed every 4 to 8 weeks which makes keeping their coats tidy that much easier in between visits to the grooming parlour. With this said, it’s important to introduce a Cavachon puppy to all the tools needed to groom them and to make a grooming session an enjoyable experience so that dogs look forward to being brushed. Older dogs usually enjoy the one-to-one attention they get when they are being brushed and it strengthens the bond they form with their owners. It’s also important to note that puppies shed more when they start to lose their puppy coats which is the best time to get them used to having their ears, paws and other parts of their bodies touched.
It’s also important to check a dog’s ears on a regular basis and to clean them when necessary. If too much wax is allowed to build up in a dog’s ears, it can lead to a painful infection which can be hard to clear up. In short, prevention is often easier than cure when it comes to ear infections.
