Overview of The Cavapoo Breed
The Cavapoo is a crossbreed that results from breeding a Poodle and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Cavapoos were initially created to be hypoallergenic dogs and thus the ideal companion for people with allergies. However, their sweet disposition and friendliness soon made them popular among all dog lovers.
Because the Cavapoo is a crossbreed, every dog is unique, though it has become increasingly more consistent in terms of temperament and looks. Cavapoos are extremely social and easy-going, getting along well with humans and animals alike.
As explained above, the Cavapoo has many different personality traits that appeal to everyone. For this reason, they have earned a top spot as a family pet in the designer dog world. He is very kind and gentle with his family members, especially young children who he can snuggle up to.
Cavapoos are always so excited to see their masters. They also love nothing more than to sit on your lap in the evening and keep you company while you read a book or play family games.
The appearance of a Cavapoo
With its large, adorable eyes, the Cavapoo is a small dog with physical features that may resemble either the Poodle or the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Depending on the size of its Poodle parent, Miniature or Toy, the Cavapoo’s size will differ accordingly. Cavapoos may have a wavy or silky coat that can come in different colors:
- Chestnut & White (Blenheim)
- Black, White & Tan (Tricolour)
Cavapoos have long, floppy ears, and a round face. Although it was initially created to have a hypoallergenic, low-shed coat, not all Cavapoos are so, with some actually shedding more than their parents. Their size usually varies between 28 and 35 cm (11-14 inches) for the Toy Cavapoo and between 30 and 40 cm (12-16 inches) for the Miniature Cavapoo. Their weight ranges from 5 to 10 kg (11-22 lb).
