King Charles Grooming Tips: 5 Ways To Have Your Dog Looking Fabulous

This unique breed comes with its own grooming challenges. Without daily maintenance, a Cavalier King Charles spaniel can become a tangled, matted mess. To help you get started right with your pet, here are five King Charles grooming tips.

Grooming Your King Charles Spaniel

Cavalier King Charles spaniels have thick, waterproof coats. They also have feathery, long hair on their ears, behind their legs, and on their feet. Unless matted, grooming experts do not recommend giving this breed haircuts, with the exception of the long hairs between their paw pads. Here are five grooming tips to help you keep your King Charles in top, fabulous shape.

1. Brush Daily

This breed has a high-maintenance coat. Brushing daily helps prevent tangles for the King Charles and helps spread their natural oils throughout their fur. Focus on the longer, more feathered parts of their coat, especially around their legs and feet.

2. Limit Bathing To Once A Month

King Charles spaniels have natural oils throughout their coats which keep them and their skin moist. It also makes their fur water-resistant. While they will only need a bath once a month or so, it’s important to shampoo them up twice to make sure they get completely clean.

3. Use A Hairdryer On Low

After the bath, towel dry your King Charles spaniel to remove excess water. Using your hair dryer on its lowest setting, brush through the feathers of your dog’s coat. Any remaining moisture may cause issues, so make sure to get your pet’s fur completely dry.

4. Clean Their Ears

A King Charles’s floppy ears are a prime environment for retaining moisture and waxy buildup. Make sure to clean inside them with an ear wipe or with a cotton ball with a cleaning solution at least once a week.

5. Trim Around Their Feet

The feathered, fluffy parts around a King Charles’s paw pads might become a nuisance if they aren’t trimmed regularly. Unlike other parts of their coats, this is the one area that needs regular cutting. Use an electric clippers, scissors, or consult a professional groomer to help you.
