Introduction to the Red Cavapoo

The Red Cavapoo is a delightful combination of the royal Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and the intelligent Poodle. Known for their striking red coat, these charming red dogs combine the best traits of their parent breeds. The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, renowned for its affectionate ways, gentleness, and cuddliness, lends a loving nature to the Cavapoo. On the other hand, the Poodle contributes its globally renowned intelligence and hypoallergenic coat, making the Red Cavapoo not only Einstein smart but also suitable for owners who suffer from pet allergies. 

This breed's popularity isn't just a trend; it's a testament to its adaptability and charm. The Red Cavapoo's appeal extends beyond its stunning appearance, characterized by various shades of that gorgeous red that range from deep ruby to a softer, apricot hue. Their personality is as vibrant as their coat, making them a favorite for families with children, single owners, and seniors alike.

Red Cavapoo Appearance

The genetics behind the Red Cavapoo's coat color is a fascinating mix from both parent breeds. The vibrant red comes primarily from the Poodle side, known for a wide color spectrum including the eye-catching red. Poodles carry genes that influence this rich coloration, which, when combined with the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel's genetics, particularly the ruby red Cavaliers, creates the Red Cavapoo's distinctive hue. Ruby red Cavalier King Charles spaniels are characterized by a deep, uniform red color without any white markings. This genetic blend between the Poodle's color variation and the Cavalier's ruby red coat contributes to the unique shades of red seen in Cavapoos. 

Colors of Red 

The Red Cavapoo's coat color is its most striking feature, ranging from deep, rich reds to lighter, softer tones. You can find red Cavapoos that have a coat color closer to chestnut or apricot, deep ruby red or even a light shade of red. The red coloring may come accompanied by patterns or markings in white or cream, adding to their undeniable charm and making each of these stunning pooches unique.

Color Fading 

A notable aspect of Red Cavapoo genetics is the potential for color fading. Known as 'color dilution', this phenomenon is common in many dog breeds and is particularly noticeable in red and apricot Cavapoos. Over time, the vibrant red coat of a puppy may lighten, often transitioning to a softer shade. This change is due to the fading gene inherited from their Poodle ancestry. It's important for potential owners to be aware that the striking red of a puppy may not be the same in adulthood. 


Perfectly sized for cuddles and lapdog duties, Red Cavapoos typically weigh between 10 and 20 pounds and stand about 10 to 14 inches tall. Their compact size makes them ideal for both apartment living and homes with ample space. Their size may be influenced by the size of the Poodle used in the mix (whether it is a Toy or a Mini size) or by the Cavapoo’s generation (f1, f1b, f2).

Coat Type 

The coat of a Red Cavapoo is a delightful mix of the Poodle's hypoallergenic qualities and the Cavalier's silkiness, ranging from wavy to curly textures. This makes them not only gorgeous but also a good choice for allergy sufferers. 

Other Features We Love 

Besides their stunning coat, Red Cavapoos enchant us with their expressive eyes and floppy ears, contributing to their overall adorable appearance. Their well-proportioned build combines the best of both parent breeds, making them as sturdy as they are lovely. Their red, often curly coat along with their cute floppy ears and small build, give them the teddy bear appearance that no one can resist.

Summer Cut

The Summer Cut is ideal for keeping your Red Cavapoo cool during warmer months. This style involves trimming the coat to a shorter, even length, providing relief from the heat while maintaining a neat and beautiful teddy bear appearance. 

Teddy Bear Cut

A favorite among Cavapoo owners, the Teddy Bear Cut emphasizes their adorable, plush-like features. This style keeps the fur around the face and ears slightly longer, creating a round, teddy bear-like appearance that highlights their expressive eyes and cute facial features. The teddy bear cut is a favorite for red Cavapoos. 

Puppy Cut

Personality of Red Cavapoos

Red Cavapoos are adored not just for their sweet looks but also for their agreeable and lovable personalities. They inherit the best traits from both of their parent breeds - the warm-hearted nature of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and the keen intelligence and attentiveness of the Poodle. This enviable combination results in a dog that is friendly, affectionate, and eager to please. 

Cavapoos are known for their friendly personalities, but they do require some socialization to let their social butterfly nature come out and shine. Their intelligence makes them responsive to training, and they often excel in obedience and agility. Red Cavapoos are also known to be playful and gentle, traits that make them excellent companions for children. 

These pooches thrive next to their owners, often attached at the hip. And because of this develop separation anxiety if left alone for long periods. Regular interaction, mental stimulation, and affection are key to keeping a Red Cavapoo happy and well-adjusted. Their loving nature and eagerness to be part of the family make them a joyful addition to any home.

Are Red Cavapoos Hypoallergenic?

A common question among potential dog owners is whether Red Cavapoos are hypoallergenic. While no dog breed is completely hypoallergenic, Red Cavapoos are often considered a good option for allergy sufferers. 
The key to their hypoallergenic status lies in their Poodle heritage. Poodles are known for their lovely curly coat that produces less dander and sheds less hair – the primary triggers for allergies. Since Red Cavapoos inherit these great coat qualities, they are less likely to cause allergic reactions compared to other breeds. 

However, it's important to note that individual reactions can vary! Not all Red Cavapoos might be suited for allergies. For those with severe allergies, spending time with a Red Cavapoo before making a commitment is advisable to ensure allergic reactions aren’t triggered.

General Health 

Red Cavapoos, a hybrid of purebred Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and purebred Poodles, generally enjoy good health, often benefiting from hybrid vigor. However, like all breeds, they may be prone to certain health conditions inherited from their parent breeds. These include heart conditions from the Cavalier side and eye issues from the Poodle lineage. Regular veterinary check-ups and a proactive approach to health care can help in early detection and management of these conditions.

Daily Routines 

A balanced daily routine is crucial for a Red Cavapoo's well-being. This includes regular exercise, like daily walks and playtime, to cater to their moderate energy levels. Mental stimulation, such as interactive toys and training sessions, is also important to keep their intelligent minds engaged and happy.

Diet plays a significant role in the health of Red Cavapoos. Feeding them high-quality dog food appropriate for their age, size, and activity level is essential. It's also important to monitor their food intake to prevent obesity, a common issue in small breeds. Regular consultations with a vet can help tailor a diet plan that suits their specific health needs.
