About the Cavoodle

The Cavoodle is a cross between a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a Miniature or Toy Poodle. Most of these dogs are gentle and sweet, and make for excellent house pets. While they are intended to be companion dogs, they are endlessly curious and eager to learn.

Because they’re a crossbreed, their traits can vary from dog to dog, even within the same litter. However, they are often kind, friendly animals who love being around humans and other dogs.

Even though they are companion dogs, they’re smart and sensitive creatures, and can be trained to be effective therapy dogs.

Cavoodle Breed History

The Cavoodle has only recently become popular, though Poodle mixes have been around for well over half a century. It is believed that the Cavoodle was first bred intentionally in Australia in the 1950s, though there is some debate around that.

The hypoallergenic nature of most Cavoodles makes it very desirable for those who suffer from dog allergies. They have continued to grow in popularity, and there is an increasing call for it to be recognised as a breed on its own.

They make wonderful companions and therapy dogs, and you can expect their popularity to increase even more as time goes on.

How to Choose a Responsible Cavoodle Breeder

The choice of breeder has a large effect on the quality of your dog’s life. Buying your Cavoodle puppy from a responsible dog breeder will help ensure that the puppy you get will have a calm, even temperament. The breeder you’re getting your dog from should know the history of their breeding dogs and have a definite goal for their breeding program.

When looking for a puppy for sale, make an effort to visit the breeder and meet the dam and stud. You’ll be able to get a better gauge of the puppy’s adult traits.

Cavoodle FAQ

Cavoodles are adaptable, intelligent dogs, but they do need to be kept company for most of the day. They love their owners and can become sad and moody if left alone for too long.

While they don’t bark a great deal, Cavoodles are alert and watchful over their homes, and many Cavoodles will bark when strangers approach.

Yes, RPBA offer RPBA pedigree papers for Cavoodle or Theodore breeders.
