Cavapoo (Cavalier King Charles Spaniel x Poodle)

Breed History / Description

The Cavapoo is a cross between two pure breeds, namely a Poodle and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. They are sometimes called Cavoodles in a few parts of the world which includes Australia, but are more commonly referred to as Cavapoos in the UK. They are one of the first "designer dogs" to appear on the scene when they were bred in America during the 1950's.

Cavapoo's Reputable breeders use Miniature Poodles which they cross with Cavaliers because Toy Poodles are prone to suffer from more hereditary health issues which they could pass on to their offspring. Cavoos are now an extremely popular choice whether as a companion or family pet thanks to their loyal, kind, placid and extremely sweet natures with the added bonus being they are thought to be "low shedding" dogs. Cavapoos are the smaller cousins of the Cockapoo and can either have a silky coat or a wavy coat depending which of their parent breeds they have thrown to, but both coats are quite high maintenance on the grooming front.
