Fur Coats and Shedding

Fur Coats and Shedding

We bathe pups weekly, if not more often, to keep them hygienic while in their whelping box. (Young puppies can be messy.) You should bathe adult dogs on an as needed basis and clean their ears to prevent infection. Using a gentle dog shampoo is recommended. We haven’t had Cavalier develop skin allergies but it is possible. Cavaliers have silky soft hair (fur). Shedding occurs but it is usually minimal and seasonal. If you notice shedding, regular brushing with a thickly bristled brush will help a lot.
