Cavatzus are easy to maintain. Their coat is silky which rarely knots. They require grooming every 2-3 months. Their skin is sensitive so a good shampoo and conditioner is a must. Cavatzus love food. Some owners prefer a fresh diet for their Cavatzus. While this is not a necessity, it does give the dog a wonderful coat. Giving your pet a bone every 2-3 weeks is also a must as it keeps their breath smelling nice and their teeth clean.
