No one should ever cross breed dogs the pound is filled with cross breed dogs that need good homes. As a CKCS owner it is very sad someone would consider cross breeding this kind of dog.
If I were you I would not support the breeder that has chosen to do this. True breeders breed for top quality to reach the AKC standard this type of dog is not AKC.

I had a cav-a-poo or a cavoodle as some people call them, and she was such a gorgeous dog. I highly doubt you would ever find one of these rare crossbreeds in a pound or animal humane society. Unfortunately she died Monday night at only 7 months old because she was born with a bad liver. It broke mine and my sisters heart. I have been looking for another puppy but it is impossible to find one exactly like her. I'm not trying to replace her because her personality could never be replaced but i hate coming home and not hearing her scratch at her cage so she could come out and play. Her tail was clipped and was an apricot color with cream down her chest which is rare. She was extremely affectionate and playful. I miss her terribly. If you happen to find one of these crossbreeds please let me know and if you decide to adopt one i am almost positive you would not regret it.

You know, for those who are against crossbreeding are those who are afraid of finding an animal more beautiful than theirs and with a better temperament. I recently bought a pug-a-wawa and he is the best dog that I have ever had, even better then any purebred Brenda. He is neutered and you won't find one of my dog's babies in the pound. Besides, the objective is not to make these dogs AKC, but if this happens, more power to the breeders.

There is nothing wrong with the cross dogs and they may be great but beware of breeders selling these dogs for over $200. They are probably here to chisel you. The dogs may be great but go to a breeder that will give you the right price, and isn't just in it for ripping people off so they can make money. That type of breeder makes me so mad and PLEASE don't support them. The dog may be great but actually is a mutt. Mutt by the way is not a bad word. It just means that you will get a great dog for a better price. Don't pay anything over at the most $300 dollars. I've heard of these dogs for under $100. That's how you want to do business. Good luck to you all in your searches!

how do you think that pure breeds start off Brenda? obviously breeds are crossed to get different breeds so don't say that other people don't know about dogs when its clearly you that needs to do some research. i think cross breeds are one of a kind and have their own personalities. cavoodles are lovely dogs with a great personality.

Brenda, it is elitist dog owners like you that make me hate the whole idea of owning an AKC standard breed (whilst I do, but do not crow about it).
Cavoodle's are gorgeous animals with a lovely temperament, good for the whole family, and are suitable for small yards. They benefit from a regular walk and a run in open space but do not need excessive exercise.
Depending on whether the pup leans more towards the poodle or cavalier breed, it will need between 1-4 brushes per week.

I have recently bought my gorgeous puppy cavoodle named Oliver out of the trading post from a breeder. He has a wonderful temprement and he is not yappy like my friends KC cavalier. He is very energetic but he also snuggles up on the coach with me at night or in the day. I highly recommend anyone to get one as they are the friendliest dogs around. I love him and I'm sure if you bought one you would be very happy.

Having previously owned CKCS's I must say they are a wonderful dog, but both of my dogs died young due to CHF, even though the breeder assured me the parents had been cleared. I am all for a cavoodle, as this cross breeding can only strengthen the dog and lesson the chance of disease that the pure breds have become known for.

Brenda, I have to agree with Mikaela. Quit spilling your ignorance on this messageboard. If you knew anything about the Cavoodle, you'd post something constructive. The Cavoodle is actually considered a hybrid designer dog. I have had Raven for 3 months now and think this is by far the best breed of dog I have ever owned. And yes, this is my first "mix". I have always owned purebreds.

Simple Biology 101, the more you mix the gene pool the healthier the animal.  Purebred does not equal quality, biologically it is just the opposite.  Ask a vet the incidence of health problems in a mixed breed versus a highly inbred (purebred) dog.  Especially in the Cavalier now with the identification of Syringomyelia as a  problem, seems like breeding to another breed would insure no incidence of this serious disease.  HOw come it's not Poolier?

Although we do not have a Cavoodle, we do have a Poodle crossed with a Lhasa Apso, I call him a Lasoodle.  He is the most affectionate gorgeous dog who is fantastic with children.  He has the good qualities of both breeds, especially his coat which is non shedding and curly like wool.  We are planning on getting a second dog soon and will definitely look at another "designer" breed such as Cavoodle or Spoodle.

I have recently been given a Cavoodle as a wedding anniversary present from my husband.  I have never had the joy of owning a dog due to my severe allergies to fur, but I have had no problems what so ever in regards to itching, asthma, welts, hives etc.  Charli is the most adorable caramel coloured puppy who loves to play and muck around but will snuggle up for a cuddle and a nap at any given chance.  Wake up Brenda as there are people out there like me who can't enjoy "Pure Bred" animals.

I have an 11 month old apricot coloured cavoodle, and she is the best thing in the entire world.  she's only the size of a cat, and it just perfect for my townhouse with a medium sized back yard.  She lives inside with me, but has a doggy door, and does what she likes.  She entertains herself as necessary, but loves to snuggle with me when I'm around.  I take her for a walk for an hour or so every day, but that's more for me than her...she doesn't need much exercise...just a good play every day.  But she does have boundless energy when I want to play and I have the energy to keep up with her.  She doesn't bark (except at the pesky cat next door) or cry but it a good little guard cause she always alerts me to strange noises.  She's incredibly smart (sometimes too smart!!!) but very lovable and cuddly.  Plus, she doesn't loose ANY hair at all.  She's got wavy hair, and I wash and brush her about once a week.  Very low maintenance.  I even do all her clipping and grooming myself with no trouble at all, cause she's so well behaved.  Oh, and she LOVES kids, plays and talks to anyone who will look at her, but is gentle enough that she couldn't hurt anyone if she tried (not that she ever would).  All in all, a wonderful dog.

I have just recently bought a cavoodle, i would have to say he is absolutely adorable, very affectionate, very playful, we have only just bought him home and he seems a bit lost and off his food, i guess maybe separation anxiety from his mom and brothers and sisters?

For goodness sake everyone, give poor Brenda a break.  Just because she gave her opinion doesn't mean you can attack it.  I have had Cav'sfor many years and love the breed dearly.  I also have a gorgeous black Cavoodle, Rosie, and she and her brother (a purebred CKCS) play happily and beautifully with my children.  Rosie is now over a year old and her only problem is having the "ratter" part of the poodle a little bit too much - she killed three of our guinea pigs.  Other than that they are a lovely breed that is perfect for just about everyone.  Mind you, I paid $600 for her and all the prices are very much over the $200 that gentleman suggested we don't spend more than, so ... whoops, but who cares.  She is worth it.

I have to say that I have owned my CKCS for 5 years now and while I love her to death will never own another purebred dog.  She was desexed twice! Once as a responsible dog owner would do and the second time when we found a lump which turned out to be a testicle.  She has cronic skin allergies and can not walk on grass during summer months.  I have to agree mixed breeds seem stronger and healthier.  While my dog is beautiful and wonderful what life does she have if she cant go outside for months without wanting to chew her own legs off?  Yes she has seen lots of vets and had lots of treatments some worse than the problem.  I say GO THE CAVOODLE I look forward to owning one, one day.

Good Job JIM!! I own a purebred Cavalier and also rescued a dog from the pound.  I love both of them more than anything.  Cavaliers have wonderful personalities but tend to have heart problems. 50% of Cavaliers by the age of 5 will have a murmur and if they are lucky enough to live past age 11, 99% have murmurs.  Dogs are just like human beings as far as what God intended for health.  We don't have babies with our 1st cousins or siblings because genetically it is very dangerous.  I love my Cavalier but I think the Cavoodle or Cavipoo is a grand idea.  With the popularity of Cavaliers their are more backyard breeders breeding dogs with poor health.  BRENDA YOU ARE AN IDIOT. YOU OBVIOUSLY DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT SCIENCE.

I have an 8 month old cavoodle and she is beautiful! Very friendly, extremely loving, easy to train (smartest out of her puppy class). Extremely socialble as well. She doesn't need to be walked much and will actually stop and sook if we walk to far. The prices of cavoodles now will reach as much as $1000 in the pet store so it is definitely worthwhile doing your research and finding a reputable breeder. I've seen some terrible cavoodles in the pet stores with very long cavalier type hair. The curlier the hair the better. My little one doesn't shed and needs to be brushed a couple of times a week. I love her to bits and highly recommend the breed to any owner (besides the really active ones) :)

I know this was started a long time ago but maybe someone will read this and think twice about getting a 'designer' dog.

Lets get one thing straight, THIS IS NOT A NEW BREED OF DOG. This is someone lumping together two other breeds of dogs and calling it a new breed. This is someone after just one thing and that is MONEY - totally the wrong reason to breed. breeding is all about bettering the breed, not creating new mutts that you could pick up at any rescue center. Therefore the people who breed these dogs are not responsible ergo they are puppy farmers or Back Yard Breeders. Would you really want to buy your pet from someone with that reputation?

Pedigree dogs were bred for a reason for instance retrieving or hunting. The breed was formed after many years, decades, sometimes centuries, of careful breeding, selecting the best, bringing them on, nurturing, having an ideal to strive for. The breeding of pedigree dogs is, therefore totally different from the lumping together of two breeds and passing them off as a cool new breed.

No responsible dog owner would get a dog because  it was cool, because you know what? The novelty wears off and it's off for a one-way trip to the pound.

This lumping together of two breeds does not make the dog healthier. It does not cancel out the illnesses common to the two breeds, infact all it does is mix two equally in-bred lines together making no difference to the health of the dog.

If I had a litter of accidents, say my lab got with a stray collie, is it cooler to say "here, I've got some cool 'new breed' pups here, they're called labrollies and clabradollies!! Roll op, come and get your new breed!!!" or to say "look guys, I'vebeen mighty irresponsible and let my lab get with a collie. Give this pup a home, keep in contact with me, spay/neuter it, love it forever and don'tmake the same mistake by adding more dogs to the world" Isn't the latter better?

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion of course, however, as a long time owner of CKC Spaniels I vowed never to get any other kind of breed but after losing my Cavs before they were 10 due to health problems I decided to try a cross breed.  Into my life came the most beautiful dog ever.  The Cavoodle has the intelligence of the poodle, the gentle and loving nature of the Cav and the loyalty and sweetness all to themselves.  I highly recommend the Cavoodle to anyone.  Love kids, old people - everyone.  I will always have one.  Cavapoo, Cavoodle and Poodlier - all the same lovely dog.

Cavoodles taste a bit like poodles only slightly saltier. I reccomend cooking them in a sweet & sour sauce on low heat for about an hour or two.

I looked all around for a healthy, sweet and loving dog for a companion.  I found my cavapoo Shannah, from a breeder in Texas.  I did alot of research on this hibrid vigor dog, and decided the breed to be perfect for me.  She doesn't shed and is hypoallergenic.  She is b/w, her markings are that of a cavelier spaniel her father.  She is playful and loves to run free in the park.  Because of the poodle, (her mother), She is so smart and trains very well. She loves children, people, other dogs and cats alike.  You can find the breeder, at Shaloma Loves Puppies webpage.  Cavapoos are recognized as a "breed" by the Continental Kennel Club, if you choose to register them.  I just wanted a great companion and Shannah, fits that description.

I just lost my pure bred Cavalier to Congestive Heart Failure at 8 years old, which is the typical age the vet tells me, for symptom onset.  If you are going to buy anything with Cavalier in it, make sure the breeder can show you examples of the bloodline that are living past 8 years with no heart problems.  You should do the same with the poodle line as they can have heart problems too. If the problem is in both breeding lines, crossing the two will not reduce the risk.  Cavaliers' (and their crosses no doubt) are beautiful and very loving and kind, but be a careful buyer and do your research thoroughly.

dont listen to people who say that all cross breeds are inferior. I have a cavoodle and she is the most gorgeous and intelligent dog i have ever come into contact with. It's like what Jim said above, the more you mix the gene pool, the healthier they are.

Hi India, I am getting my new Cavoodle this saturday....and me and my family(2Kids) are sooo excited!.... I lost my first cavoodle of five years last month to a 4wd, and im by no means replacing her but with 2 children wanting another one i had to do it. I went with the same breed as i got my first 3 months before i had my second child and they grew up togethor for 5 years. They have the best personality and are full of love and fun! They are just perfect with children......
DO NOT listen to that Brenda chick,   honestly she's got no idea. They are just a delightfull breed and id have dozens of them if i could.
If you need a breeder of them i can put you in touch with a couple in NSW.
Hope it helps....And you wont look back!
