About Cavoodles

The Cavoodle is a small bundle of fun.

In brief

  • Cute cross breed
  • Does not require much space
  • Intelligent, friendly and seeks human companionship

Origins

As a cross between the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and the Miniature Poodle, it’s a small bundle of fun that has been growing in popularity for the last 5 years or so.

Personality, characteristics and temperament

As well as being a typically friendly cross-breed, many Cavoodles will look like puppies, even as adults. They're born with long, soft floppy ears, large brows and a compact, round face.

The Cavalier is one of Australia's most popular purebred dogs, deliberately bred as a companion dog. The Miniature Poodle is known for its intelligence and loyalty. As a cross between the two, the Cavoodle is known to be great with kids and little less highly strung than a Miniature Poodle, thanks to the addition of the Cavalier's laid-back temperament.

Health and care

Cavoodles can live between 10-14 years. Genetic problems, such as slipping kneecaps, eye defects and congenital heart problems (that they are born with) may occur, although due to the benefits of 'hybrid vigour' the Cavoodle is blessed with a more diverse genetic makeup than purebreds, making it less susceptible to the conditions that may afflict parent breeds.

Conclusion

Your Cavoodle will appreciate a small home with a little or no backyard. But whilst they don't require much exercise, they will still need regular walks and runs.

The Cavoodle is not generally as hyperactive as some other breeds, but still adores human companionship. In all, this is an intelligent dog, suitable for all age groups and most lifestyles.
