Cavoodle Puppies For Sale
Cavoodles must be one of the most popular designer breeds, and for good reason. They make excellent family dogs. They’re great with other dogs and pets and of course fantastic with kids.
Cavoodles are a cross between a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a Poodle. Most Cavoodles are either toy size or miniature size. Toys are smaller than Mini’s but the Mini’s are still small dogs. We’ve found that the majority of Cavoodle breeders breed the first cross Cavoodle i.e. one parent is a purebred Cavalier and the other parent is a purebred Poodle, either toy or miniature which is what will determine weather the offspring will then be toy sized Cavoodles or miniature sized Cavoodles.
The Cavoodle is shorter than average. The ears are usually set well above the eyes and hang low past its chin. The neck is elongated and transitions to its straight back. Its tail is long and usually hangs freely past the hocks.
Cavoodles are a very healthy and robust little breed that gets on with everyone!
Cavoodles are gentle, loving, sweet natured little dogs. They get this trait from its parent, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. They’re easy going and love to play with other dogs, pets and kids. Cavoodles are intelligent and highly trainable.
Most Cavoodles will have a flowing, luxurious type of coat. The amount a Cavoodle will shed varies depending on the individual dog but most will shed very little if at all. So what does this mean? Well the positive is that you won’t have dog hair all over your furniture and home and you, but if your Cavoodle isn’t dropping hair the hair keeps on growing so most people have their Cavoodles clipped. How often? Again, this really just depends on how long you prefer the coat to be. Some Cavoodle owners have their dogs clipped once a year while others prefer having them clipped every few months. The longer the hair the more brushing required but otherwise it’s actually a very easy coat to maintain.
Cavoodle colours include sable, sable and white, peach, peach and white, apricot and white, lemon and white, red, red and white, black, black and white, black and tan, tricolour.
Characteristics of the parent breeds
Cavoodles are said to be smart dogs, like the Poodle parent breed. The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel evolved as a lapdog prized for it’s sweet and friendly temperament, so the Cavoodle makes for a companion dog with great disposition. The Poodle parent breed has a distinctive coat with a velvet type texture and “powder puff” appearance. The coat is a non shedding wool coat. The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel parent breed has a medium length silky, wavy coat. The Cavoodle offspring usually have a full, soft and silky coat somewhere in between those of the two parent breeds.
First-generation (F1) Cavoodles
Cavoodles are the first generation cross of a Poodle and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Either breed can be the mother or “dam”.
At present Cavoodles have not been widely bred as a multi generation crossbred. Like any designer breed, second generation Cavoodles have less consistency than the first generation Cavoodles and fewer of the benefits of hybridization.
Cavoodle Breeding Goals
The Cavoodle has been bred as a small, healthy, great tempered companion. The low to non-shedding coat makes this little dog great for allergy sufferers.
