Cavapoo

We adore our Abby! Originally Rose. She is such a sweetheart. She loves everything, our cats,our Cairn terrier which she plays with a lot. They have so much fun together. She has been to the vet and is quite healthy. She is such a happy puppy and is very social. She doesn’t wag her tail, she wags her whole butt!

Cavapoo Characteristics

Cavapoos – also known as Cavadoodles and Cavoodles – are adorable, outgoing, and snuggly. They’re a mixed dog breed of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and Poodles. They inherit their playfulness and intelligence from both of these breeds. Since they’re relatively small and very affectionate, Cavapoos are great for almost any home and for new dog owners. Cavapoos are moderately active and grow to be small or medium in size.

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Small
  • Trainability Accommodating

With their affectionate personality, Cavapoos make loving family dogs. They are also highly intelligent and moderately active. Daily walks and outside playtime can help them release their abundant energy, and make them great play companions.

As a crossbreed, their traits depend on their lineage. Cavapoos can be black, gray, red, brown, tan, beige, or white. Some pups are born with one color of fur that changes to another color as they mature. They all share a curly or wavy coat and can look like little teddy bears.

Cavapoos are relatively easy to train and love pleasing and bonding with their owners. Because they are so attached to their humans, they may develop separation anxiety when you leave them alone too long.  While home alone, a Cavapoo may get anxious and turn to some naughty behaviors like excessive barking or chewing.

However, with early training and socialization your Cavapoo will develop into a wonderful companion. Thanks to their Poodle ancestors, Cavapoos have a hypoallergenic coat, making them great for people with allergies to dogs.

Cavapoos grow to be small to medium. They can range from 9 to 14 inches. Their size depends on whether they have a miniature or toy poodle parent.

Cavapoos can weigh up to 25 pounds. The breed is generally healthy and enjoys a typical lifespan of 10 to 15 years.
