The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel has grown tremendously in popularity in the United States. In 2020, this breed ranked in the 17 position in popularity.

If your salon is like most, you are seeing more and more Cavaliers coming in for professional grooming.

Depending on the owner’s lifestyle, some dogs are kept long. Others short. While other owners prefer somewhere in the middle. There are lots of options when it comes to pet grooming on this charming breed.

Dogs are Jennifer Hecker’s life. She is an award-winning Certified Master Groomer. She also shows multiple breeds in the AKC conformation world.

However, her career revolves around grooming pets. She has a robust list of regulars. In fact, she is one of the most requested stylists at Whiskers Resort & Pet Spa where she works.

In this lesson, Jennifer shows you a how to do one of her most requested haircuts on a Cavalier Spaniel.

Owners ask for an easy to maintain haircut at home. They just don’t want to deal with all the fur. Yet they still want some of the characteristic of the breed to remain. This low maintenance trim not only keeps the dirt and hair at bay, but it also allows the coat to remain good shape for long time – something many owners appreciate.

Throughout the lesson, Jennifer discusses common problems with this coat type. She shares how she solves the issues while keeping safety, quality and time saving techniques at the forefront of the grooming job. From start to finish this trim should take well under an hour to do. That includes the bath. The dry. And the haircut.

If you struggle with getting your grooms done in a timely manner, this would be a great lesson for you.
