Cavoodles were created by crossing a pure miniature or toy Poodle with a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. After the great interest in our Spoodles (Cocker Spaniel x Poodle) we often had owners requesting a smaller version of the Spoodle.
Cavaliers are gentle and loving family pets, with soft, cuddly features. They can have eye and heart problems, and shed their coat. Poodles are one of the smartest of all breeds, with miniatures being a good and stable family pet. However, their coat does require a lot of maintenance, needing shaping and clipping regularly. They also suffer from genetic problems such as eye disease.
By crossing these two breeds many genetic problems are greatly reduced. The coats will be soft, wavy, and can be clipped by owners without great skill. The shedding will be reduced, depending on the coat length. (The more poodle-like the coat, the less shedding). The temperament is excellent for all age groups – Cavoodles are tolerant, gentle, and playful pets.
Colours will vary from white, caramel, apricot, black with white, and black & tan.
