If you love small, intelligent dogs, then you will appreciate the amazing attributes of the Cavapoo, a cross between the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and the Poodle. Also, known as the Cavadoodle or Cavoodle, this designer breed originated in Australia and has become incredibly popular in the United States due to their low shedding characteristic and obvious intelligence. Australian breeders began intentionally mixing the Cavalier Spaniel and the Poodle back in the 90s in a bid to create a puppy with the amazing qualities of both breeds.
Appearance and Grooming
This small puppy has a fluffy coat that varies from straight, to wavy or curly. They come in different colors with the most common being black, brown, tricolor, white and yellow. Due to the breed having one parent that does there is a minimal possibility that your puppy may shed. Its coat needs to be frequently brushed to avoid tangles. Brushing also helps to remove dirt, especially around the legs. The fur should be periodically cut throughout the year and more often on the legs, muzzle and around the eyes.
Just like their parent the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, they will be a very affectionate dog that loves to be with its family, but like the poodle will require more mental stimulation. These dogs are very connected with their owners and if left alone for long periods of time can become anxious and even form a habit of barking.
Family and Companionship
These loveable lap dogs are great companions and the perfect family pet. They will fit right in to their new environment in no time at all. Fool of energy and always ready to play, these dogs are perfect for children, though because of their small size it is important to supervise during playtime.
The Cavapoo is energetic in its nature and therefore requires regular exercise and walks to remain healthy. Playing a game of tug or fetch with them along with a walk will ensure that your puppy’s needs are met. They do not require as much exercise as Poodles, but are a bit more outgoing than Cavaliers.
Training and Socialization
Due to its energetic and social attitude, it is important to regularly socialize your puppy with other dogs and people throughout its life. This is a fun loving and clever dog that can easily be trained and responds well to positive reinforcement from persons who behave fairly toward him and who show consistency and patience. Training in agility and competitive obedience is also great for Cavapoos as they are an intelligent breed that is eager to learn.
Frequently Asked Questions
The average weight of an adult Cavapoo is between 15 to 20 pounds with a height of between 18 to 14 inches.
It depends on which parent breed they take after more. If your Cavapoo has more Poodle in their genes then there is a good chance that it will be more hypoallergenic then if they had more Cavalier in their genes. It is important to note, that no dog is truly 100% hypoallergenic.
They are not known for their barking, but all dogs are different. If you notice your Cavapoo beginning such habit, it must be nipped in the bud. These dogs are easily trainable so it won’t be difficult.
Cavapoo’s have an average life expectancy of 11 to 15 years.
Yes! Cavapoo’s have a friendly and playful temperament which makes them an excellent companion for children. However, just like any small dog, young children should always be supervised when they are around any dog, no matter the breed.

They can be solid or multi colored. The most common colors are black, white and brown.
Because of their small stature, they don’t require a lot of food. Generally, 1 cup of food per day is plenty. This should be broken up into two parts - half in the morning and half at dinner time.
F1 Cavapoos are the result of breeding a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a Poodle. When 2 Cavapoos are bred together, they are referred to as an F2. When an F2 Cavapoo is bred to another F2 Cavapoo, they are known as an F3. However, if an F1 Cavapoo is bred to either a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel or a Poodle, they are referred as being F1B.
Smaller breeds can be a challenge to housebreak, compared to the bigger breeds. However, these little ones are intelligent so with consistency and praise, it will surely be successful.
Cavapoos are brave so you can count on them to alert you when something is amiss, but don’t rely on them much for protection.
The Cavapoo can have different coats depending on their genes, so it us up to you to decide if you want your Cavapoo to have shorter or longer hair. It is optimal to take your little one to the groomer every 2 to 3 months to keep them clean and trim.
Not at all! Due to their smart and curious nature, these crossbreeds are easy to train. This is especially true for Cavoodles who take after their Poodle parent.
Rocky arrived on 10/2/16 and he has been pure joy! He's so playful and fun! He has been crate trained from the first night he was with us and is doing well! A big thank you to Premier Pups for all your help and instruction!
Update: We purchased Beau in March 2016 at 9 weeks old. He turned 2 on January 2 and is now a Therapy Dog. He brings so much joy to children and hospital patients. We are so fortunate to have this wonderful, loving dog in our life. Thanks to Premier for making our dreams come true!
We were so excited to add a puppy to our family, but were a little nervous to purchase online. I’m so glad we decided to go for it because the whole process couldn’t have gone any better. We’ve had Molly for over a month and couldn’t be happier. I was very impressed with Premier Pups, their communication was great and she arrived with everything we needed to get her settled into her new home. She’s a healthy, happy puppy with a great temperament.
This is our Beau! He is such a delight.. We had to put our Cavalier King Charles to sleep and the house was just too quiet. We found Beau on the internet and fell in love with him immediately. He is a very active dog and loves playing with our Shepherd. They have a ball!! I was very impressed with our purchase and handling of Beau from Premier pups. They were very pofessional and run a wonderful facility. The iformation he was sent home with was great!!
I was updated via text through Niles’ flight to San Francisco.. pictures included, which really made my day! The instructions are all very clear and the meal kit that came with him helped with the craziness of getting settled the first day. Niles didn’t seem sedated or traumatized from his long travel day.. just super happy and lovable from the second we picked him up! So far so good.. I would recommend premier pups to anyone who asked!
Spur of the moment decision. I have been scoping out puppies on this website for a while now. When I seen Sandy's sweet face and blue eyes I jumped on the adoption. We drove 5 1/2 hours down and 5 1/2 hours back. Well worth the stress and the drama of it all. I call Jada my husband's therapy dog, since he has stage four cancer and sits in his chair most of the time. ... honestly , she loves her momma so much! Such joy, love and life now in this home. She's a good puppy, she will run away once out in the yard. I'll blame that on the spaniel, her nose is always down on the ground. She loves to hop, that goes to the poodle. Jada's teeth are bothering her, so all day long we say ouch, no biting. She sleeps with us, no cage for her. * Which I'm sure I'll pay for that later when we have to go away. But who can resist the warmth of a cuddly dog. So far she rides with us. She doesn't get sick in the car, so that's jackpot there. We love her. We're eating eggs and hotdogs till the end of the month, but well worth it. Sometimes you have to be selfish to feel better. One day when we can afford another, we will go back for a playmate. Thank you so much.
We got our little puppy just yesterday! He's been doing great. He was sooo happy the minute he saw us. Our daughters are loving Comet too. He seems to be adapting extremely well. Thanks for everything premier pups.
Lexi is 2 years old and the love of our lives! She is the sweetest dog we have ever owned and loves everyone she meets! Many friends have adopted Cavapoos because they love her so much! We wish we had adopted two!
I had an amazing customer experience with Jenna. From the first call to the last. Lacie was great contacting new/updating me on flight details and she tried to help in any way she could. They really tried to give Jenna to me as quickly as possible which was amazing. Due to COVID-19, Mike personally put Jenna (with a few other puppies) on his private plane to ensure their safety during this pandemic. I was extremely pleased with this decision and Jenna was too! She’s a happy and healthy baby and I would totally recommend anyone getting a pup from this website and team!
We purchased our little guy and picked him up in May 2020 (picture is him at 6 months). This is our first puppy so not knowing what to expect we were a little nervous. However, the process was seamless and our puppy (now named Murphy, previously Andrew) is amazing. Our vet said he was very healthy and she could tell he was well taken care of prior to us getting him. He is so friendly and immediately adjusted to his new home and family. He loves and plays well with all dogs and people - he has the perfect personality. I would highly recommend Premier Pups. He’s been a blessing to our family!
