Especially for first time dog owners
Like most dog owners, I was glued to the TV coverage of Crufts last weekend. I remember having the opportunity to decide which dog breed I would welcome into my home. I was bewildered by how many wonderful options were out there!
So, if you’re searching for your own perfect four-legged companion and are looking for the perfect dog breed, I believe I have the perfect solution for you. Here are the 10 reasons why Cavapoos are the best dog breed!
1. Cavapoos are a cross of two amazing breeds
The mix of two dog breeds can give you the best qualities of both! In this case, you have the loving, loyal qualities of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel along with the super intelligent poodle. They go together to make a pet who is loyal, gentle and easy to train – a perfect pet!
2. Cavapoos look adorable
The beautiful ‘teddy bear’ face, those big expressive eyes, floppy ears that bounce when running, a tail that never stops wagging and soft, thick fur. You will have a companion who will turn heads!
3. Cavapoos do not trigger allergies
Cavapoos are hypoallergenic, which is great for any potential pet owners seeking an animal unlikely to trigger an allergic reaction. The added bonus is that because they do not shed, you won’t have a house covered in dog hair!
4. Cavapoos come in a variety of colours and sizes
Because Cavapoos are found in a variety of colours and sizes, you can find a pet to suit your personal preferences. Just take care not to fall for the extra premium charged by some breeders for red pups – Cavapoos often carry the poodle fading gene, so there’s no real guarantee that your pooch will stay red!
5. Cavapoos are intelligent
This makes them easy to train. They’re also very eager to please, particularly for treats! So they’re the perfect choice for first-time dog owners.
6. Cavapoos are very affectionate
Cavapoos love to play, but they’re equally happy snuggled up in the sofa with you. So if you want an affectionate companion, look no further. The only danger is that they’re so happy and content in your company that Cavapoos may suffer separation anxiety; these are not pets to leave home alone for hours on end.
7. Cavapoos are gentle in nature
The gentle manner of Cavapoos makes them ideal around children, and anyone who may be anxious about dogs.
8. Cavapoos do not grow too large
As with any mixed breed, there are a variety of factors at play in the size of your fully-grown dog. The CKC is generally bred with a toy poodle or a miniature poodle for an F1 Cavapoo, and this affects the size of the offspring. However, adult Cavapoos rarely weigh more than 12 kg. These dogs would suit owners who have limited space in their home, or want to be able to pick up their pet.
9. Cavapoos are adaptable
These lovely dogs adapt quickly to their circumstances, as long as you are around to reassure them that everything is fine! They travel well and love to explore.
10. Cavapoos are hilarious!
Mischievous and playful, Cavapoos will make you laugh out loud every day with their quirks and their lovely nature. They have that doodle habit of standing up on their back legs as often as possible, and I have had many comments about my little meerkat! They will make you and everyone around you smile.
And if you still aren’t convinced…
Spend some time with one. And prepare to have your heart stolen!
