Cavapoos are a designer breed, also known as a Cavoodle. They are a cross between a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a miniature Poodle. Our Cavapoos are First Generation cross, meaning we bred our purebred Cavalier King Charles Spaniel mothers with a purebred Poodle. The Cavapoo can be registered with the American Canine Hybrid Club. These pups are especially for those of you who are completely in love with the loyalty and pure sweetness of a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, but need the non-shedding/hypo-allergenic features that a poodle can offer, with the superior health that only a hybrid dog can have.
Our Cavapoo pups are raised with our family being loved and handled by our kids like crazy. They should mature around 14 lbs, and are as lovable as a Cavalier could ever be! Please contact us for pricing information or with any questions you have about the pups.
Build: The Cavapoo average shoulder height is 9-14 in and typically weighing 7-18 lbs. Their appearance varies depending on the genetic influence of the parents, with most having a compact face with long, floppy ears and large brows.
Coat: The Cavapoo has a soft, Poodle-like coat, with a few exceptions having Cavalier’s longer, silkier, wavy coat. The Cavapoo can have many color possibilities: black & tan, black & tan parti (spotted), reds, and/or red parti. The crossbreed with the poodle helps to create this loyal non-shedding hybrid.
Character: Cavapoos are social, energetic, and thrive on human companionship. They are intelligent, emotionally close, and ready to play or snuggle on the couch. There temperament makes them well suited for apartment living.
Training: Cavapoo’s are very smart and can be easily trained. They can learn a wide variety of tricks, are eager to please their owner and typically potty train easily.
A Cockapoo can be the result of mating either the American Cocker Spaniel or English Cocker Spaniel with a Poodle. They have been known in the United States since the 1950s.
Character: Cockapoos have become popular because they generally combine the outgoing, loving personality of the Cocker spaniel with the
low-shedding, low-dander qualities of the Poodle. Cockapoos are intelligent and active, and thrive when they receive regular exercise. Cockapoos can be very agile, excelling at "retrieving" games and enjoying other activities such as swimming. Cockapoos are very sociable dogs and as such are not suitable to be left alone for long periods where they are likely to suffer from separation distress or anxiety.
Cockapoos may inherit the characteristics of either or both their parent breeds. While some Cockapoos appear more similar to Cocker Spaniels, others will exhibit more Poodle traits, creating a variation in Cockapoo appearance and temperament.
Cockapoos can be one solid color or can have complex markings. They can be white with patches of any color. They can also have spots or freckles of color, called ticking. Cockapoos may also have a merle coat, where random portions are diluted to create a mottled appearance.
The coat of the Cockapoo will vary from dog to dog. Most will have a coat somewhere between a Cocker Spaniel and a Poodle. However, some will have a coat more similar to the sleeker coat of the Cocker Spaniel, while others may have a curlier coat like a Poodle.
Cockapoo size and weight are a function of what type of dogs the parents were. On average a Cockapoo is 10 to 15 inches tall and weighs 12 to 24 pounds.
