Cavapoo

Cavapoo

Coat: Coat is soft and can be wavy, or curly.  Coat colors can range from solid black, gold, white, chestnut and white, or tri-colour (black, white and tan).

hypoallergenic than most dogs (a characteristic inherited from the
Poodle)

Cavapoo (also known as Cavadoodle or Cavoodle)

A Cavapoo (also known as Cavadoodle or Cavoodle) is a mix between a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and, most often, the miniature sized Poodle.  They are quite small weighing anywhere up to 20 pounds, and 12 – 14 inches tall.  They are very intelligent and have the desire to please which makes them very easy to train.  They are friendly with everyone, have a very laid-back personality, and are very gentle in nature.  With their small compact bodies, round faces and long, floppy ears they appear puppy-like even into their adult years.  They are well suited for homes with little or no yard as they do not possess an overabundance of energy where they will need a ton of exercise or space to run.  However, as with all dogs, they still need the benefit of some exercise such as a short walk or play session to keep them healthy and fit.  This dog is suited for just about anyone  and will do well with either a single person or a family.  Possessing a very laid-back personality and gentle nature makes them excellent with children.  They love and crave affection and sometimes bond more strongly with one person in the family over the others.  They have a lifespan of approximately 12 – 16 years.

 

When considering the nature of the Cavapoo you must consider the characteristics of both the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and the Poodle separately in order to determine the characteristics the Cavapoo may exhibit.

Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is bred as a companion dog and as such are extremely gentle which makes them a great dog to be around children.  Aggressiveness is not a trait that runs in this breed and they tend to view everyone they meet as a friend.  With this in mind, they also do not make good watch dogs.  They get along very well with other dogs and are not timid of dogs well beyond their own size.  They have a wonderful temperament and can be described as being happy, affectionate, playful, and curious.  They are very eager to please and not considered stubborn which makes them an easy breed to train.  They are cuddly and lovable and are quite content to cuddle up next to their owner or snuggle on a lap.  They are chasers of moving objects so it is to an owners advantage to have a fenced yard or have their Cavalier leashed.

Poodle

The Poodle comes in three different sizes, toy (10” and under, 6-9 1bs.), miniature (10-15”, 15-17 1bs.), and standard (over 15”, 45-70 1bs.).  The Poodle has been cited as being the 2nd most intelligent breed of dog.  Their exceptional intelligence, paired with the fact that they are generally very eager to please, empowers them to excel in obedience training.  They learn quickly and will delight in showing off their new tricks.  Poodles are generally very easy to housebreak.  They are loyal and devoted companions, extremely people-oriented, and crave lots of love and attention.  They are typically calm, good natured, with a sweet temperament, and the ability to bond with all members of their human family.  The standard poodle, in particular, does extremely well in families with young children, while the toy and miniatures fair better with older children.  Poodles do not do well in households where they will be left alone for long periods of time, left outside, or bound to one room of the house.  Poodles have an extremely low-shedding, dense coat which is either curly or corded and should be groomed every 6 – 8 weeks to prevent mats and tangles.  If you should so decide, their coat can also be kept short for low-maintenance.  Poodles come in a variety of colors such as silver, cream, gray, blue, black, white, apricot, red, caf-au-lait, brown, and parti-colored.  The Poodle is oftentimes referred to as the hypo-allergenic dog.  But, while there truly is no such thing as a completely hypo-allergenic dog, they are unquestionably more compatible with allergic persons than other breeds.   Being classified as highly energetic, the poodle, like most dogs, will appreciate daily exercise, such as a walk, play session, or a run at the dog park.

TOBY-
He is a really good natured – smart- sweet dog.
I have found him to be a bit stubbon.
Trainable- smart- but resistant to the command at times.
He knows what he is supposed to do and chooses not to at times.
Could not resist this sweet puppy.
Had to have him!

Benson the Cavapoo!


Photo submitted by: Emma 9/8/13

This is Benson, he’s one now. Love him to pieces, very affectionate, and obedient most of the time. Very quick to learn, but also very strong willed. I have found him to jump up at lot, and gets cross if you try and take something off him, but leave it command and treat, he will drop immediately, would definitely recommend this than tug of war, as he has got aggressive if I tried this. Very energetic, definitively needs exercise every day, which has been good for me too. Would agree with chewing and digging, they don’t like to be left for long either, but sleeps in crate at night v well (much better than without the crate). Very loyal and intelligent dogs though. Would definitely recommend he’s great x

Hi Linda, I live in Hudson, WI. We found our Cavapoo in New Richmond at http://www.doylesfarmandhome.com/pet-store Val, the manager, is very helpful. I would give her a call and see when their next litter is expected. Our Cavapoo is almost 6 months old, and he’s AWESOME! Best of luck :)

But when I don’t he goes in house..I want to play with him and feel guilty putting him in.. Yet when I take him out of crate and outside he doesn’t go.. Tonight I am putting back in crate and out every hour.. 3 hours since dinner and he didn’t go. Help!!

I had our Cavapoo shipped from Missouri from Kingdom Come Kennel. Deb Bartkowski was the contact. Our pup was picked up at Newark via a Delta flight and was delivered healthy, happy, and full of energy. I’ve owned several poodles and JJ is the most loving of all.

I currently have a Cavalier King Charles (have owned 2 total). I’m thinking of a Cavapoo for my family’s next dog, but I want the Cavapoo to look more like a Cavalier than Poodle in the face. Do I look for a puppy that has a Cavalier for a dad? Thank you!

Mattie January 16, 2014 at 2:43 pm

Sarah, There’s no method to the madness, a puppy can resemble either the mother or the father with neither being more likely. Especially in mixed breeds its difficult to determine exactly how the puppy will look and, in addition, its looks will also change as it grows into adulthood. It seems you can’t lose as far as cuteness goes in the Cavapoo though…they all look adorable to me!

I rescued my dog from the city kennel she was going to be put down. All I can figure is a male abused her she is afraid of males. She barks at them as to stay away. The dog catcher was going to have her put to sleep.
She was found walking the streets matted up and looking bad and unkept. Poor girl.
I rescued her took her straight to the vet and then 2 days later to the doggie hair dresser and got her a hair cut and all cleaned up. What a difference. She was so timid. Poor baby. She would not leave my side. She still doesn’t leave my side. I knew when I took her to the vet they said she was a poodle mix but didn’t know what. So after time I watched and observed and looked and figured out she is part cocker spaniel. So then I went to the animal store and learned about cavapoo and that is exactly what she is she is under 20 lbs. characteristics match. She is such a great cavapoo rescue. Someone neglected her and discarded her. Poor Baby. So I am making up for it. She has everything she could want a loving and caring home.

This is Chloe. She is 4 months old. She is super smart! Pees and poops outside when given the command “go potty” (Sometimes you have to repeat it if there are birds etc). She does have a strong will though and will bark at me if I tell her to lay down sometimes…but she does it. LOL We are working with a trainer now while she is young. She accepted her crate after our routine got established and sleeps in it all night without crying. What a smart girl!
