Cavapoo

My fiancé and I had the BESTTT experience with PuppySpot! We are first time puppy owners - we have never bought or taken care of a puppy on our own before although we grew up with dogs and the way the breeder has raised our Cavapoo, Norah is incredible. She was already socialized and eager to learn. We completely potty trained our pup in two weeks! She loves people and especially kids! She is an amazing puppy and becoming a great and obedient doggy :) The service from the puppy managers a...

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.

How dog-friendly is Iowa?

Iowa is a dog-friendly travel destination and has a lot of dog-lovers. But a few issues cause the state to rank rather poorly for dog-friendliness, particularly its lax animal welfare laws. 


We investigated two big studies ranking all 50 states by important pet-friendliness factors. The studies looked at things like pet-friendly accommodations, pet care and services, the number of dog parks or outdoor space, and animal welfare laws. 


The first study, by animal safety group Pawsafe, ranked Iowa as the 41st most pet-friendly state. The second study, by consumer safety group Safewise, ranked it as the 43rd most pet-friendly state in the country. The state scored poorly for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


Combining these two studies together shows Iowa towards the bottom of the list of pet-friendly states.
