1. Before the process starts, gather all necessary requirements first. You will be needing different tools to clean the eyes, ears, brush teeth, bathe, dry, trim nails as well as hair. Make sure you have all these things before doing anything else.
2. Before bathing your dog, you need to brush and comb away mats and dead hairs as this become tight and unmanageable when wet. Dogs with long coat, such that of a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, require daily brushing to make sure that the coat does not get matted and that foreign objects such as grass and sticks do not become entangled. Comb or brush your pet from top to bottom using the appropriate comb/brush for his coat.

3. Avoid wetting your pet's ears, eyes and mouth. Clean your dog's ears regularly to prevent excessive buildup of earwax. Some dogs, such as the cavaliers have excessive hairs growing on the ear canal. You might want to trim this however breed standards for Cavalier King Charles Spaniel demand that this must be kept long. Ask your vet or groomer about this.
4. Begin shampooing at the neck and move downward. Pay careful attention around the nose, mouth, ears and eyes. After shampoo, rinse your dog thoroughly because shampoo residue will cause hot spots, an irritating spot of bald, itchy, red skin.
As soon as bathing is over, dry your dog as best as you can. If you need to blow dry your dog, choose a good quality dryer to eliminate or minimize the risk of burning your pet.
