A little about the Cavoodle - Breed traits

The Cavoodle is a crossbreed of a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a Poodle. Charming, outgoing and friendly, they make excellent family dogs and companions due to their size and amiable temperament. They are also well suited to people with allergies as they are less likely to shed. 

The Cavoodle is a good-natured, affectionate, and playful breed. Originally bred for companionship, these furry bundles of joy will make a great family pet. While being a gentle-natured breed, they are inquisitive and lively making them very sociable and friendly with other humans and dogs.




The Cavoodle may be predisposed to the following health conditions: Canine Hip  Dysplasia, Patellar Luxation, Cerebellar Abiotrophy, Syringomyelia, Atopic Skin Disease and Mitral Valve Insufficiency.

The Cavoodle can have a range of coat types, with some having slightly wavy and silky fur, and others having curled or wiry fur. There is also a range of colours the coat can appear in, ranging from light brown/reddish-brown with white markings to cream, apricot, black, ruby, silver and white.

They are a hypoallergenic breed, meaning they are less likely to cause an allergic reaction. This can slightly differ between each Cavoodle depending on the traits gained from the Spaniel parent.

Cavoodles are non-low shedding, so grooming is minimal, but it is still recommended they get brushed once a week to avoid matting and tangling.

Training and exercise

With a playful energy, the Cavoodle requires regular (daily) exercise. Ranging from walks, to training and getting mental stimulation throughout the day from dog toys. They need enough exercise to burn their endless energy and keep them occupied throughout the day.

Cavoodles are an intelligent breed so they can be trained quite easily. It is best to start training your Cavoodle at a young age and ease their way into it.
