Why A Cavapoo? The Reasons Are Endless!

So you are thinking about adding a furbaby to your family? Whether you have had a cavapoo in the past or met one on the street you will know why these sweet things are the perfect match for you!

A Cavapoo is on the smaller side weighing 12 to 20 pounds, and 12 – 14 inches tall. They are a mix of 1/2 Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and 1/2 miniature Poodle. These darlings are very intelligent and love to please you which is a great combination when it comes to training them.  The Cavapoos are loving to everyone, have a very laid-back personality, and are very gentle beyond words.  With the Cavapoos small sturdy bodies, sweet round faces and long, floppy ears they keep their puppy look into their adult years. The Cavapoo life span is approximately 12 – 16 years.

The Cavapoo doesn't have a overabundance of energy where they require a excessive amount of exercise or a huge space to run. But, as with all dogs, they still require some exercise, a play party on the floor or a short walk will keep them healthy and happy!  Whether you are single or have a family the cavapoo puppies are a great choice!  With their laid-back personality and oh-so gentle nature it makes them a great choice when it comes to joining a family with children.  They love and crave affection! 

A Cavapoos coat can be wavy, or curly.  The Cavapoo can be black, gold, white, chestnut and white, or tri-colour (black, white and tan).

One of the greatest things about the Cavapoo is that it is 1/2 Poddle and this causes their fur to be more hypoallergenic than most dogs! 


The Nature of the Cavapoo

 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

 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 and love to play fetch!

Poodle

 The Poodle comes in three different sizes, toy (10” and under, 6-9 1bs.), miniature (10-15”, 15-17 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.
