Do you ever wonder what else you can do to make your Cavoodle’s life better?
Look no further! These are some super useful tips for owning a Cavoodle and keeping them well managed.
One of the most useful tips for all dog owners is regular grooming sessions, either at home or in a dog salon. Grooming can mean anything from brushing to bathing. Cavoodles are low shed dogs, which means their coat is relatively low maintenance. Even if they don’t need a lot of care and attention with their coat, it’s still a good idea to brush them once weekly. This can be viewed as bonding time between your and your Cavoodle – and trust me, your Cavoodle loves the attention!
Bathing is also incredibly important for your dog. Bathing once every 1-2 weeks should be more than sufficient. Keeping your dog clean is healthier for your dog, especially if you like to frequent the parks around where you live. A clean coat means a happy, healthy (and less smelly) dog.
2. Trim your Cavoodle’s nails regularly
One of the things that dog owners sometimes overlook is trimming their nails. Even if your dog goes outside, you do need to trim your Cavoodle’s claws regularly to keep them from hurting. Because some dogs can grow to dislike nail trimming, this practice is best started when the Cavoodle is a puppy; it helps build trust as you handle their paws.
Keep an eye on the quick; this is where the blood is supplied to the nail. Cutting this accidentally can be painful for your Cavoodle. Go slow, and use clippers that are made for the curvature of your puppy’s nails. This ensures a clean cut right where you need it. Remember to stay calm; if you’re nervous, your dog will be nervous too!
3. Useful tips for keeping your Cavoodle cool
Australian summers are no laughing matter; the ground is hot (as is the air), which means you have to pay special attention to your Cavoodle. Plenty of water is a must, especially if you go on a long walk. Make sure to bring about 2L of water for drinking, as well as some for yourself for very hot days!
Booties are another good investment for your Cavoodle. The roads and walks are hot and rough on their paws, so wrap up their toes to prevent blistering. If they do get cracked and sore, some vaseline on the bottoms of their paws can help.
4. Cavoodles are smart dogs that need smart activities
Even if it’s as simple as a toy with a treat inside, Cavoodles love challenges. They also love to please their owners, making this a win-win for both of you. Teach your Cavoodle tricks and reinforce them regularly. Training will help keep your Cavoodle’s mind sharp, and will definitely keep them happy.
5. Your Cavoodle loves you unconditionally; love them back!
Cavoodles are incredibly loyal, loving dogs that bond tightly with their owners. No matter what you’re doing, your Cavoodle will always want to be right beside you. This is what makes them one of Australia’s most beloved dogs; their loyalty and commitment to their owners is almost unmatched!
Show your Cavoodle that you love them too! Petting, cuddling, walking, and spending time with your Cavoodle are the best ways to keep them happy. Their simple needs means you can keep them happy without changing anything that you do.
No matter what you and your Cavoodle do together.
