How To Maintain Your Cavoodle’s Coat

Brushing: Regular brushing is essential for Cavoodles to prevent matting and tangles. It is recommended to brush your Cavoodle once or twice a week using a de-matting comb or brush. If you encounter stubborn tangles or knots, switch to a grooming comb or slicker brush. Be extra careful when brushing around your Cavoodle's face and pay attention to areas that rub, such as the ears, neck, armpits, ankles, and paws. If your Cavoodle shows discomfort, consider using a detangler spray to make the process easier.

Bathing: Cavoodles should be bathed every one to two weeks to keep their coat clean, smelling good, and free of oils. Make sure to have a towel and basin ready for the bath, and use a gentle dog shampoo to avoid skin disorders and eye problems. After bathing, brush your Cavoodle from head to tail using a wire brush.

Trimming: Cavoodles require regular trimming to keep their hair away from their eyes and prevent eye infections. For long, silky coats, it is recommended to trim every six weeks, while shorter, curly coats may require more frequent trimming. To trim the hair around the eyes and face, use grooming scissors, being careful to cover the eyes to prevent injury. Leave the whiskers on the nose, chin, and upper lip alone, as they help dogs detect objects and movement. To trim the body, use electric clippers, starting at the neck and moving down towards the tail. Be gentle when trimming the stomach area, as it is sensitive. Finish with touch-ups as needed.

How to Tell if Your Cavoodle's Coat is Healthy:

  • The coat feels soft to the touch: A healthy coat should be soft and silky, not rough or brittle.
  • The coat has a pleasant smell: A healthy coat should not have an unpleasant or overpowering smell.
  • The skin underneath the coat is free of irritation or redness: Healthy skin should be free of any irritation or redness and should not be flaky or dry.

  • Brush your Cavoodle regularly: Regular brushing helps prevent tangles and knots, and it can also help distribute natural oils throughout the coat.
