Exercise and Training
Cavaliers enjoy spending time with their family. They love to go for a walk and many Cavaliers shine
at obedience, agility and other dog sports. Many are very food oriented and will do just about anything for a treat!
This does make training rather easier. They respond well to positive reinforcement training such as clickers or
Care needs to be taken to make sure they do not get too fat. They have a way of looking at people
with those big, brown eyes that plead for a taste of whatever is on offer.....
Their coat is not hard to care for. Show dogs are shown completely untrimmed - but pets can be
clipped if the owner wishes. A bath in the laundry tub every week or two and a thorough brush and comb two or
three times a week will keep them looking lovely. A 'Mars Coat King' is a great grooming tool to strip out a thick coat
in a pet. If you put a snood on your dog before feeding him you will save getting food in his ears. They get used
to wearing them quite quickly - mine all gather around to 'get dressed' for dinner when they hear their food bowls rattling!
I make snoods out of polycotton that wash well. Email me if you would like one.
