Characteristics of the Cavapoo

Cavapoos are a great fit for a variety of lifestyles. They prefer being in the company of their owners rather than in a kennel, so prepare for them to be filled with excitement when you come home from being out. It's best to adopt this breed if you're planning to spend plenty of time with them. Cavapoos are especially affectionate with their families and tend to have a quiet, calm temperament when they're not exercising. They can also be quite energetic thanks to their playful personalities.

History of the Cavapoo

Poodle mixes, including the cavapoo, have become increasingly popular in the United States in recent decades. These mixes blend the personality traits of one breed—in this case, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel's good-naturedness—with the low shedding and hypoallergenic traits of poodles. Although the sudden popularity of cavapoos may make them seem to be a newer breed, it is believed that they were first bred in the 1950s in Australia.

Cavapoo Care

Like other designer dogs, cavapoos require a bit more grooming than some popular short-haired breeds because of their curly coats. However, the cavapoo is also highly trainable, eager to please, and it only requires a medium amount of exercise to stay happy and healthy.

Exercise

Despite the cavapoo's high energy, this breed actually has moderate exercise requirements, only needing daily walks. This, combined with their small stature, makes them suitable for apartments and urban life. They certainly have the energy to keep up with children, but as with all pets, make sure that your children have adult supervision when playing with your cavapoo. Keep in mind that these dogs are on the smaller side, so there is a higher risk of injury with a playful child that gets a little carried away with their roughhousing.

Grooming

Cavapoos have soft, medium-length fur that can range from wavy to curly and requires regular grooming. They are known for shedding very little, making them an ideal breed for those with allergies to pet dander. Their lack of shedding doesn't mean they don't need routine brushing, however. If your cavapoo isn't brushed at least once to twice a week, its wavy curls may start to mat. Aside from being uncomfortable and sometimes even painful, mats can make the skin underneath prone to infections. Some owners may opt to have their dog's fur cut short into a 'puppy cut' to help prevent matting.
