Overview
The Cavapoo, also known as the Cavadoodle, is created by the crossing of two breeds: Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Poodle. They are often referred to as "designer dogs" and have become popular family companions. The Cavapoo is a hybrid breed also known as a crossbreed. When you decide to open your heart and home to a crossbreed puppy like the Cavapoo you'll melt with joy on a daily basis as they are very compassionate, outgoing, playful dogs. Cavapoos are a cross between the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and the Poodle which means they are not purebred dogs, therefore, one must not assume this type of crossbreeding will result in the best genetic markup between the sets of parent breeds. Simply crossbreeding two or more purebred dogs will not produce a dog with the best qualities between the breeds as breeders cannot control their genetic markup or how the genes will express themselves after being combined. Cavapoo pups are super cute and adorable which makes this breed very popular and a favorite of new puppy owners. They have become popular over the past decade as people seek out puppies or dog breeds that are different from the everyday Poodle for sale or believe this crossbreed will have different characteristics that will appeal to them. It's important to understand crossbreeds are not purebred dogs and do not have fewer health problems than their parents' breeds and will not carry only the best traits of each breed in its heritage.
Character
One of the most distinctive features of the Cavapoo is their long ears. They are compact, small to medium sized dogs and possess a round, expressive face. They are typically well-proportioned, agile, and sturdy. Cavapoos are smart dogs and often possess great traits from their parents such as their alertness, intelligence, and their ability to learn quickly. Cavapoos interact well with children and are great playmates for kids 6 years old and above. This breed should be carefully supervised around younger children as this breed generally only weighs 12 to 25 pounds (making them a perfect suitor for any sized home). While this breed can appear to be quite sturdy they can be prone to injury from kids handling them too rough.
Temperament
The Cavapoo is affectionate, loyal, and friendly. They are good-natured, playful, and social. They do best with older, considerate children. They do well with dogs and non-canine pets. Cavapoo's will bark to announce visitors and out of the ordinary sounds. They are very family oriented and do not do well if ignored or left alone for extended periods of time. To achieve similar consistent size, appearance, temperament and characteristics of this breed responsible dog breeders will individually select the best puppies from their litter with the traits they deem important and then breed them over several generations for the desired traits to become set. To achieve consistency in appearance, size and temperament, breeders must select the puppies with the traits they want and breed them over several generations for the traits to become fixed.
Care
Depending on coat type, the Cavapoo requires regular brushing to prevent matting and tangling or professional clipping. It is important to keep the ears clean and the nails trimmed. They may be prone to such health issues as hip dysplasia, eye disease, luxating patella, PRA, skin problems, and epilepsy. Cavapoos must live inside a house and never be left outdoors for an extended period of time. They are known to have a short muzzle which leads to heat sensitivity therefore, a responsible pet owner will not leave this breed outside in the heat on a hot day.
Coat
The coat of the Cavapoo may be curly or soft, silky, and slightly wavy. Generally speaking the Cavapoo is promoted by breeders as being hypoallergenic due to their parents' heritage of having a reputation for being hypoallergenic, meaning this breed can live in a house and be tolerated by owner's who are sensitive to dander (dead skin cells that are shed by all dogs including people) from a dog's coat. Some people may certainly find they may still react with an allergy when being around a Cavapoo, but many report the reaction to be significantly less severe and more tolerable. Any breeder of a crossbreed dog like Cavapoos should not guarantee their puppies will be hypoallergenic, but should state this breed may carry hypoallergenic traits from its parents' heritage.
Training
Early socialization and obedience are recommended. The Cavapoo may be difficult to housetrain. The crate training method works best. They will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, patience, and consistency. This breed responds positively to training and socialization which should be done at an early age. Keep their training sessions short and fun but make sure to use positive reinforcement. Award and praise this breed when accomplishing an achievement during training.
Activity
The Cavapoo is well suited to apartment living provided they are sufficiently exercised. They thrive on daily securely leashed walks, off-lead play in a securely fenced yard, and family play sessions. They are relatively active but do adapt to their owner's lifestyle. Take this breed out for a walk daily or engage in indoor play time every day. They are an agile, athletic breed who loves to play fetch and chase a ball endlessly.

Annual cost of owning a Cavapoo puppy

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Cavapoos true ownership cost. When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

What is the cheapest I can buy, preferably a Male Cavapoo, for?

A 'cheap' puppy is not how you should be purchasing your new fur-ever friend. You should seek a reputable, responsible and knowledgeable breeder that is striving for healthy, well temperament-ed dogs. The average price of a Cavapoo puppy is between $1200.00 - $1800.00 but some breeders may sell for more or less. The health, well-being and temperament of your puppy should be the first on your list; then price second. There should be no change in price compared from male to female puppy unless the breeder has a surplus of one gender compared to the other in their litter.

Are Cavapoo's easy to train?

The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is a 5/10 on the dog-trainers intelligence scale, while the Poodle is between a 8 - 10/10 on the dog-trainers intelligence scale. This scale determines how long it takes to train a simple command and how long the dog remembers the command. So when mixing the breed together, the mix becomes a moderately easy dog to train.

How heavy and what is the neck size of a 13 week old cavapoo?

If you are wondering this, it is most likely that you are getting a new Cavapoo puppy. Your puppy should have a small neck size, so going to the pet store and purchasing a size small dog collar will work. Once you get your puppy, you'll be able to determine if the collar is big enough, fits just right or too big. As for weight, all puppies will weigh differently depending on exercise and food intake. As soon as you get your new puppy, make a vet appointment for within 3 days and have your puppy examined. Your vet will be able to tell you if he/she is at a proper weight.

Is breeding a cavapoo with a cavapoo common in breeding? I have a breeder trying to sell me a dog that to me is not a pure cavapoo.

There is nothing considered a "pure" cavapoo as the cavapoo is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel/Miniature Poodle cross. A puppy whom is a cavapoo that has a C.K.C.S and Mini Poodle as their parents is considered a 1st generation of F1. Breeding a cavapoo and a cavapoo together that both have a C.K.C.S and Mini Poodle of their parents have puppies called F2's as they are second generation. They are still considered cavapoos'; but are just of a 2nd generation compared to 1st generation.

Yes it is, but it is also just called a Cavachon (Cavalier King Charles Spaniel), Miniature Poodle mix; or just a mutt.
