Cavoodle = Cavalier King Charles Spaniel x Poodle
Kruizen Kennels breed first generation Cavoodle puppies.
The Cavoodle is a hybrid breed that is produced when crossing a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel with a Poodle. Hybrid dogs, such as Cavoodles, benefit from a more diverse genetic makeup than purebreds and are often not vulnerable to conditions that affect the parent breeds. Another benefit of this hybrid breed is that Cavoodles, as with all ‘oodle’ breeds, are hypoallergenic, unlikely to cause allergy in humans.
Cavoodles are suitable for a diverse range of ages and lifestyles as well as being highly compatible with other animals. This adorable breed is friendly, affectionate and gentle, making them a fantastic addition to the family.
Cavoodles are an intelligent breed that thrive on regular training and human interaction, making them ideal for families both with, or without children. They are lively and affectionate companions that enjoy being included as part of the family.
Another fantastic thing about Cavoodles is that they can adapt to living in a small home or apartment if they still receive adequate daily exercise.
Size and Colouring
A great deal of variability can occur amongst pups of the same breed, variation amongst the litter is influenced by the genetic contribution of each parent with some pups appearing more Poodle-like and others more Cavalier. Therefore, it is impossible to predict the exact size a pup will grow to, but they will be a relatively small sized dog weighing approximately 5-12kg and reaching 25-35cm in height.
Cavoodle colours also vary in each litter, with the possibility of anything from solid black, white, ruby, blenheime (chestnut and white), tri-colour (black, white and tan) or gold.
Maintenance and other needs
Cavoodles have a thick soft coat that can grow either wavy, curly or straight depending on the genetic makeup of each pup. They are a low shedding breed that require low amounts of exercise and will be content in a smaller sized yard.
The amount of grooming required is dependent on the type of coat each individual pup has. All coats will require some grooming and clipping, especially the non-shedding variety as it will not fall out. Dogs with a more predominantly poodle type coat also need regular brushing to prevent knotting.
Cavoodle ears, as with all floppy eared breeds, need cleaning regularly or they may become infected. Eyes should also be cleaned daily to prevent buildup eye discharge and tear staining.
These dogs love human companionship, from the day you bring your Cavoodle puppy home it will do everything it can to be with you. The Cavoodle is a fun-loving pet that will love any form of attention, from watching TV with the family or trips to the dog park.
