FAQs on Adopting a CavaDoodle Puppy
If you have never raised a CavaDoodle puppy, here are a few helpful answers to some of the most frequently asked questions.
Are CavaDoodles hypoallergenic?
The answer is yes, but… Hypoallergenic means – they are less likely to affect allergies. Be aware this doesn’t mean that they are allergy free. If you are very sensitive, any breed of dog may affect your allergies.
How big do CavaDoodles get?
They can range from 20 to 35 pounds in weight , depending on the sizes of the parents. So, they’re medium size. We occasionally may have a larger or smaller puppy in a litter outside of this size range.
Do CavaDoodles shed?
They are considered non-shedding dogs. This means there is minimal shedding of fur. Keep up with proper grooming and you should have few issues.
Do CavaDoodles have low maintenance coat?
The short answer is no. Low shedding, allergy friendly breeds generally need grooming on the same schedule as a poodle, every 6-8 weeks. The upside side is they won’t cover your furniture, clothes and floor in fur. More time grooming but less time cleaning!
What is a CavaDoodle’s lifespan?
10 to 15 years is the average lifespan for a medium-size dog, including the CavaDoodle. With a proper raw food diet, and minimal chemicals, quality of life and years can be extended.
What is the temperament of a CavaDoodle?
Our goal is to breed for the friendliness of a Doodle, with the Cavalier adding a calm and sweet nature.
Are CavaDoodles good with children?
As with most dogs, as long as children are properly supervised and taught to be gentle, CavaDoodles are wonderful family pets. We also suggest all families with small children work with a positive reinforcement trainer soon after your new puppy arrives.
Are CavaDoodles suitable for service work?
Our first goal in breeding is to produce a companion pet. Although they are not ideal for service work or ENS duties, they would be perfect for therapy visits to hospitals and nursing homes.
