The Cavoodle is an adorable and much-loved cross between a Poodle and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
The Cavalier is an incredibly loving and affectionate dog, originally bred as pets from a line of hunting dogs. They’re incredibly sweet and affectionate and are well known for their puppy-dog eyes. They stand at about 30cm tall and they weigh 6-8kgs.
The poodle is a remarkably intelligent and curly-coated originally established in Germany for water retrieval. Their curly coat grows long and shaggy when unkempt because of its very low-shedding nature. Personality-wise, poodles are regal but loving and incredibly loyal pets. Poodle coat colour can have almost endless variation. Toy poodles are typically 25cm and 4kg. Miniature poodles are slightly bigger, standing at up to 38cm tall and weighing up to 8kgs. Standard poodles are much bigger, standing at up to 60cm tall and weighing up to 30kgs.
Cavoodles themselves are super loving and affectionate, as well as being clever and engaged. They are wonderful with other dogs and are very social, they can be quite active but they’re just as happy to be curled up on the couch or stretched out on the floor.
Cavoodles can happily make their home in almost any household because they’re so easy-going, cute, and cuddly. They make excellent family pets and are happy to be involved in any family activities. Like any dog, they need walks and exercise, but they are quite happy in a small living space presuming that they get this much-wanted exercise.
At Designer K9 we’ve bred Cavoodles with lots of different coat colours. Typically ranging within red, golden and black with white accents on any of these coats. Coat colour often fades over their lifetime. Due to the low-shedding nature of the poodle coat, Cavoodles are typically very low-shedding, particularly in comparison to other straight coated breeds The curl of their coat varies depending on the pup, with some dogs having a much curlier coat than others. Due to their low-shedding coat, they need regular grooming to keep this in check. Our Cavoodles are all First Generation, and through our knowledge and experience we are able to help guide you as to which puppy would suit your needs and/or preferences.
