would be difficult for a Cavoodles not to be charming. Both of his
parent breeds are outgoing, loving and playful. Toy Cavoodles generally
weigh 3-5kg, making them a comfortable size for most homes. They are not
necessarily the best watchdogs, but they are likely to greet visitors
and intruders alike with a smile.
Cavoodles have the potential to be highly trainable, although some may prefer to sit on your lap rather than do a sit/stay. They will be happy to sit for a treat! Cavoodles are fun-loving and can be good playmates for children who are at least six years old. Younger children should be supervised carefully any time they are with a small dog such as a Cavoodles. Even though he’s pretty sturdy, if they accidentally fall on or hit the dog, they could hurt him.
Cavoodles have a moderate activity level that is adaptable to their owner’s lifestyle. They need a good walk or active indoor playtime each day, and if you’re interested (and the dog's overall health is good -- your vet can help determine that), they are athletic enough to participate in such dog sports as agility, obedience and rally. Cavoodles are good at playing fetch and will chase a ball endlessly.
Both of the breeds used to create Cavoodles tend to be smart and learn quickly. If you begin socialisation and training early, keep training sessions short and fun, and use positive reinforcement techniques such as praise, play and food rewards, you will be rewarded with a wonderful companion.
Cavoodles are companion dogs. They need to live in the house, never outdoors. Because they may have a short muzzle, they can be sensitive to heat. Never leave them outside on a hot day. Cavoodles come in several colors and patterns, including red and white, tricolor, red and black. With their sweet, gentle temperament, Cavoodles can make great therapy dogs.
