Cavapoo History

The Cavapoo (Cavadoodle or Cavoodle) is a designer breed that is thought to have originated in Australia during the 19th century when the Australian breeders began mixing the Cavalier Spaniel and the Poodle in an effort to create a dog with the intelligence and agility of the Poodle and the kind temperament and sweet disposition of the Cavalier Spaniel. Although the exact origins of the Cavadoodle breed are unknown, we can look back at the history of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and the Poodle breeds to better understand the designer hybrid breed.

The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, a favorite of noble and royal families for centuries, has been long associated with luxury. King Charles I was so fascinated by the small Spaniels that the breed was eventually named after him. Being of a sweet and calm nature, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel has often been referred to as the “Spaniel Gentle”.

The Poodle, who now holds second place as most intelligent dog, has been depicted in paintings and other artworks since the 13 th century in both France and Germany. Highly intelligent, proud, agile and elegant, the Poodle has been a favorite at royal courts throughout history, being especially adored at the King’s Court in France during the 18th century.
