Temperament

Cavapoos thrive on love and attention, making them the perfect lapdog....

Loyal, sociable, and friendly to all, the Cavapoo is a wonderful dog for families. Due to their sensitive nature, the Cavapoo is not suited for outdoor life or kennelling. A Cavapoos favorite place is right next to their human!

Caring For a Cavapoo

The Cavapoo can be energetic, but is adaptable to the owners lifestyle....

Two decent walks a day are enough to keep the Cavapoo in shape, with access to an outside area every few hours. The Cavapoos non-shedding coat is fairly low-maintenance, but a weekly brush will help keep it in tip-top shape.

Cavapoo History

Breed History

The Cavapoo breed originated in America during the 1950s....

Like most dog breeds that are crossed with the Poodle, Cavapoos are suited for owners who may have allergies to dogs. Although no dog is truly hypoallergenic, a non-shedding dog is much easier on the sinuses than their fluffy cousins. Its also believed that crossbreed dogs are less susceptible to the health issues that come with purebreds. The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel has an average lifespan of 10 years, whereas the Cavapoo can live up to 20!
