Cavapoo is a cross breed that has surged in popularity in recent decades.
These dogs are the result of breeding between a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a miniature or toy Poodle.
The result is a companion-sized canine with a happy and upbeat personality and typically low-shedding coats.
Cavapoos can come in a wide range of different colors that mirror both their Cavalier and Poodle parents.
Having said that, every Cavapoo can be different as they can inherit different traits from both breeds.
In this article, we’re going to show you some example of Cavapoos to give you an idea of what the breed looks like.
First, let’s learn a little bit more about these dogs.

What is a Cavapoo?
Cavapoos are cross between a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a Poodle. They’re a mixed breed that can also be referred to as Cavoodles.
Cavaliers and Poodles are perhaps two of the best known and most loved dog breeds in the world. It’s unclear exactly when Cavaliers and Poodles were mixed for the first time to create the Cavapoo. However, these “designer dogs” were thought to have bred intentionally in Australia since the 1990s. They’re becoming more and more common around the world.
Cavapoos are companion dogs so they’re not big in size. The exact size of a Cavapoo will depend on whether a breeder used a miniature or toy Poodle to breed with the Cavalier parent.
Generally, Cavapoos can range between nine and 14 inches and can weigh between eight and 20 pounds.
Cavapoos can come in a wide range of colors that reflect both their Cavalier and Poodle parent. There is a lot of variety within the cross breed. They can have different coat textures, straight like their Cavalier parent or curly like their Poodle parent.
Some of the colors include:
• Black and tan
• Black tuxedo
• Chocolate tuxedo
With the basics covered, let’s take a look at some Cavapoos!
A Cavoodle is for life. They cost money. Need regular grooming and indoor dogs. To make sure you have lots of time to spend with them especially in the puppy stages as they need training so they don’t pick up bad habits.
Lily has a beautiful soul. She is very gentle, loves being around humans but loves hanging out with Daisy and her friends. She is sassy, very smart and so much fun. Loves sitting on our laps as well.
Cooper is so smart and eager to please. He’s a quick learner and he picks up on all the little things. He definitely has a floofy, poodle-coat, but he has Cavalier coloring.
Cooper will eat anything! He loves his kibble, all treats, and of course any human food he can get his paws on. When he was a puppy, he would sometimes need to be hand-fed. He was a little hesitant to eat unless you were sitting with him, but now it’s no issue.
Cooper loves to play with other dogs! I’ve definitely considered getting a second. I think it would be so nice for him to have a companion when he’s home alone without me. My only concern is that adding another dog to the mix would change mine and Cooper’s relationship. Is it crazy that I’m worried him and the new dog would be best friends and I’d feel left out?! Okay, yeah, that’s probably crazy.

Coffee has a very placid personality and very much a creature of habit. She gets over excited to see people she knows and is cautious of people she doesn’t know. She is very social though likes to be out and about. Has a some what obsessive personality once she gets something in her head she doesn’t let it go.
I may be biased but Cavoodles are definitely great companion dogs. Coffee loves a cuddle and mistakes herself for a human. She knows when your sad and is especially affectionate at this time, she knows when your happy and very playful at that time. Coffee is like my little shadow and I take her with me wherever I can.
My favourite memory is when I took my nephew with me to pick up Coffee. His eyes lit up when he saw her and said “OMG she looks like Coffee that has to be her name”. He was so excited and every day since is a memory. Whether she is goofing around doing zoomies, ripping ears off hers soft toys, being stubborn or cuddling I cherish every moment.

I always knew I wanted a doodle. Poodles are so smart and no shedding was a major plus! After doing some research, I learned Cavapoos are a good family dog and they get along well with other animals. I knew Cooper would be spending a lot of time at my parents house, so that was really important to me as they have two dogs of their own. I also read that historically, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels were bred to be foot warmers and lap dogs, which I loved as I was really hoping for a dog who loves to cuddle!
