First-time cavapoo owners may notice their puppy’s fur coat getting a little shaggy by the time it reaches 6 months old. The cavapoo’s coat differs from that of, say, a smooth-coated dog like a Labrador, which is easy to maintain.
An inaugural trip to the groomers may be on the cards. However, at $50 a visit, trips to the groomers don’t come cheap so you might consider whether you can groom your cavapoo at home?
There are many aspects to dog grooming that can easily be done at home by owners. Brushing, washing, nail trimming and dental care are all tasks for which professional help needn’t be sought. However, cavapoos do need their hair clipping every 6 to 8 weeks, and this is a task best left to a professional groomer.
