The Cavapoo (also known as Cavadoodle or Cavoodle) is a mix between a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and, most often, the miniature-sized Poodle. They are quite small weighing anywhere up to 20 pounds, and 12 – 14 inches tall. They are very intelligent and have the desire to please which makes them very easy to train. They are friendly with everyone, have a very laid-back personality, and are very gentle in nature.
With their small compact bodies, round faces and long, floppy ears they appear puppy-like even into their adult years. They are well suited for homes with little or no yard as they do not possess an overabundance of energy where they will need a ton of exercise or space to run. However, as with all dogs, they still need the benefit of some exercise such as a short walk or play session to keep them healthy and fit.
This dog is suited for just about anyone and will do well with either a single person or a family. Possessing a very laid-back personality and gentle nature makes them excellent with children. They love and crave affection and sometimes bond more strongly with one person in the family over the others. They have a lifespan of approximately 12 – 16 years.
