Brushing and grooming of your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel dog are tasks that help to strengthen the positive relationship bond between your pet dog and you. Brushing should be an enjoyable and relaxed experience for your pet and you.
How Often to Groom Your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Dogs with short coats normally require much less brushing and grooming compared to dogs with medium to long haired coats as these longer coats can get tangles, mats and debris trapped in them more easily.
Some very short-haired dogs may not need traditional 'brushing' and for these dogs, owners may instead like to try a soft grooming glove to carefully remove loose hair, occasionally.
Pet dogs should be brushed 'as required'. Owners should keep track of the condition of their dog's coat, looking for any tangles/mats or dullness which suggests they might need a brush. Grooming can take anything from a few minutes to a number of hours a week depending on your type of dog.
