Playful- Good-natured- Affectionate

The Cavapoo puppies are a crossbreed between a Mini Poodle and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Cavapoos are one of the most popular designer dogs because they are hypoallergenic and their size makes them an excellent travel companion. They are generally good with other pets and children if introduced properly, and they do not require much exercise to be happy. This can make them ideal for people with busy lives who like to travel. Cavapoos are very smart dogs that learn new commands very quickly, after less than five repetitions.

Cavapoo History

The Cavapoo is a designer puppy, a mixed breed of a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel crossed with a Miniature or Toy Poodle. The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is a small dog that originated in the United Kingdom. Its history can be traced back to the 17th century when it was developed from the King Charles Spaniel by crossing with small breeds like the Pug and the Japanese Chin. The Cavalier has a long, silky coat that comes in four color combinations: Blenheim (chestnut red and white), Tri-color (black, white and tan), Black & Tan and Ruby. The Toy Poodle is one of three sizes of Poodles, along with the standard Poodle and Miniature Poodle. The Toy Poodle is believed to have been developed in Germany or France, where it was known as the Dwarf Spaniel or Caniche. Poodles come in three color variations: solid black, solid white and apricot. In the U.S., there are also red and chocolate (brown) varieties of Poodles.

CAVAPOO

Cavapoo Appearance

The Cavapoo dog has a long, narrow muzzle with large, expressive eyes. The ears are long and hang down on either side of the face. The neck is fairly long and arched slightly at the back where it meets the shoulders. Their tail can be either docked or left naturally to hang down their backside.

Cavapoo Temperament

The Cavapoo dog is one of the most popular designer breeds, and for good reason. The Cavapoo puppy is known for its affectionate nature, gentle disposition, and outgoing personality. The Cavapoo breed tends to be a loving companion who forms strong ties with their family members. Cavapoo puppies are happy and eager to please dogs that do well in homes with children and other pets. Cavapoos breeds are highly adaptable dogs that can thrive in most environments. While they prefer a home where they aren’t left alone for long periods of time, they will do fine living in an apartment if they get plenty of exercise and attention. These dogs tend to be relatively active indoors but should get daily walks to ensure they stay healthy.

Cavapoo Grooming Requirements

Cavapoo puppies are known for their beautiful, hypoallergenic coats. But they still need to be groomed.

  • Brushing: Cavapoos don’t shed much, but you should brush them at least once a week. This keeps their coat healthy and can help prevent matting.
  • Bathing: You should bathe your Cavapoo about every 4-6 weeks. It’s best to use a gentle shampoo made for dogs. If you notice that your dog is itching or scratching more than normal, talk to your vet about specific bathing requirements.
  • Ear cleaning: Your Cavapoo’s ears should be cleaned with a cotton ball and dog-safe ear cleaner about once a week. You can usually find this on the pet aisle at any grocery store.
  • Teeth brushing: Just like humans, dogs can develop cavities and gum problems if they don’t brush their teeth regularly. Use a toothbrush made for dogs, and brush your dog’s teeth at least once every week or two; or more if they seem to have bad breath.
