Grooming The amount a Cavoodle will shed varies depending on the individual dog but most will not shed a lot. So what does this mean? Well the positive is that you won’t have dog hair all over your furniture and home and you, but if your Cavoodle isn’t dropping hair the hair keeps on growing so most people have their Cavoodles clipped. How often? Again, this really just depends on how long you prefer the coat to be. Some Cavoodle owners have their dogs clipped once a year while others prefer having them clipped every few months. The longer the hair the more brushing required but otherwise it’s actually a very easy coat to maintain.
Brushing of your dogs beautiful coat is recommended to keep it looking its best. It’s helpful to get your young puppy used to regular brushing. We find a metal tooth comb the easiest and best to groom with. Once or twice a week would should be adequate. Clipping often makes their coat more manageable. At the very least it it a good idea to keep face and bottom trimmed and a full body clip twice a year.
Cavoodles tend to be more susceptible to ear problems as they have floppy ears that do not allow good air flow. Take care with bathing not to get water in the ears. When looking at the inside of your Cavoodles ears they should be nice and Pink, not RED. Take a damp washcloth or cotton ball and gently wipe the inside of the ears. Only wipe the areas that you can see, do not poke or put anything into their inner ears. You can buy specific cleaner and powder at pet stores or your veterinarian’s office. Do Not Use alcohol because it will dry out the ears. Check them weekly for redness or strong odors that may indicate the presence of something unwelcome.
A bath every couple of weeks is helpful. We use aloveen oatmeal shampoo and conditioner.
Little puppy toenails grow rapidly. A trim of the tips is recommended every 2 weeks.
