Sometimes referred to as Cavoodles or Cavoos, Cavapoos can be counted among the first “designer dogs” that came about via the blending of two different pure dog breeds. This captivating crossbreed is an intelligent, hypoallergenic pooch that is ideal for people who suffer from allergies, as well as a perfect pet for families with children.
A concise history of the Cavapoo
Cavapoo breeders devised this happy hybrid in mid-20th century America. It wasn't long before this cross between a Poodle and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel became a very popular pet, due in no small part to the Cavapoo's docile temperament and loving personality. Despite the fact that both Toy and Miniature Poodles can be bred to create this adorable crossbreed, responsible Cavapoo breeders employ the Miniature, instead of the Toy, because with this sort of Poodle parentage, it is less apt to develop hereditary health issues.
Small in stature with big, bright eyes, the Cavapoo may resemble either parent. The larger the Poodle, the bigger the pups provided by Hill Peak Pups and other Cavapoo breeders. This precious pup's coat can be silky or wavy. Again, this depends on the parentage. Cavapoos come in a range of beautiful colors that include:
- Blenheim (chestnut and white)
- Tricolor (black, white, and tan)
Cavapoos boast long, floppy ears, and a sweet, round face. Originally bred to have a low-shed, hypoallergenic coat, some Cavapoos may shed more than their parents. Size varies between 11 and 14 inches for a Toy Cavapoo and between 12 and 16 inches for a Miniature Cavapoo. The weight of a full grown Cavapoo typically ranges from 11 to 22 pounds, according to Dog Zone magazine.
Temperament and character
Cavapoos tend to be super friendly with people and other pets. First-time dog owners who choose a pup from responsible Cavapoo breeders won't be disappointed. Cavapoos have little if any drive to catch prey, so they can generally be trusted around cats.
Because the little Cavapoo is so fond of its people, the dog may show signs of separation anxiety when left alone. Positive and gentle reinforcement training begun in early puppyhood will help you raise a well-adjusted pooch that can be left alone for hours at a time.
If you're looking for a yappy little watchdog that will alert you to intruders, a Cavapoo could be just right for you. If you want a vicious guard dog that wins through intimidation, you may wish to consider another breed.
