Country of Origin

The Cavapoo, also known as a Cavoodle, is a cross between the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and the Poodle. Poodle crossbreeds are meant to produce a dog with mixed traits and the Poodle’s signature nonshedding coat. As a crossbreed, the Cavapoo is not eligible for registration with purebred registries such as the American Kennel Club, but it can be registered with the American Canine Hybrid Club. The Cavapoo is not considered a purebred because it doesn’t ‘breed true’, meaning that it doesn’t display a consistent set of characteristics. Like other ‘designer breeds’, the Cavapoo has seen a recent surge in popularity. Some breeders produce Cavapoos by crossing a purebred Poodle with a purebred Cavalier King Charles Spaniel (called a ‘first generation’ cross), but others allow crossing Cavapoos with Poodles or Cavalier King Charles Spaniels (called a backcross) or with other Cavapoos (called a multi-generation cross). Different crosses can result in different characteristics.

Size

The Cavapoo has a shoulder height of 9-14 in (23-35 cm) and can weigh anywhere between 7-18 lbs. Cavapoos can vary in appearance depending on the genetic influence of the parents. Most have a compact face with long, floppy ears and large brows.

Coat

The Cavapoo is known for its soft, Poodle-like coat, though a few have the Cav’s longer, silkier, wavy coat. The Cavapoo can be a wide variety of colors including gold, black, white, Blenheim (brown and white), or tricolor (black, white, and tan). The Cavalier coat sheds, but the Poodle coat sheds little or not at all.

Character

The Cavapoo is friendly and energetic, thriving on human companionship. It is intelligent and can be somewhat hyper. Cavapoos tend to follow their owner from room to room, eager to play or just cuddle up. They may get into mischief or snoop around where you want to keep them out. Some Cavapoos are so attached to their owners that they suffer separation anxiety, barking and whining when their owner leaves without them.
