The Cavapoo is the result of breeding a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel with a Poodle. Cavapoos, like all hybrid dogs, vary in appearance depending on the characteristics of the breeding pair. They have compact faces with large brows and long, fringed, floppy ears. They have large, round, wide-set eyes and a button nose. Their bodies are small, and their legs are short and strong, sometimes featuring the Cavalier feathering. As a Poodle mix, they are considered hypoallergenic and could be a good choice for those who suffer from allergies.

Cavapoos are smart and gentle, making them ideal for those who want a dog to be part of the family. They get along well with other dogs and cats, but they really crave human companionship and will want to be by your side as much as possible. Cavapoos are active, busy little dogs, and though their needs can be met by playing inside, they will love going for walks, playing outdoor games, and interacting with other dogs and people at the dog park. You can begin training this breed early, which will keep them mentally alert. You’ll find them agile, obedient, and quick to solve problems. Cavapoos are eager to please and adapt well to their family’s lifestyle.
