Our Cavapoo puppies are F1 – meaning a 1st generation cross – or an F1b-meaning a 2nd generation hybrid. An F1 is a Purebred Cavalier bred to either a Purebred mini or Toy poodle Male. An F1b puppy consists of an F1 Cavapoo female bred to either a Toy or Mini Poodle. Both hybrids have a very similar temperament although an F1b may be more active as they have more of the poodle genetics. There is no major difference in male versus female puppies.
The F1 Cavapoo will have a wavy haircoat with minimal shedding and be semi-hypoallergenic. The F1b Cavapoo will have a curlier haircoat with no shedding and be hypoallergenic. Grooming upkeep is easier on an F1 Cavapoo. They require frequent brushing and should be on a 12-14 week grooming schedule. An F1b is harder to brush as they are curlier, they should be on a 6-8 week grooming schedule. If you keep their hair short they only need to be bathed every 6-8 weeks.
Our Cavapoos have a sweet, calm, and loving temperament. They have a medium energy level. This is a great breed if you are looking for an apartment dog or for first-time dog owners as they are very loyal and social. Potty training is normally easy with consistency. They are a good choice for all ages and therefore make great service dogs. Our Cavapoos range in sizes of 12-20 pounds and are 9-12 inches tall. Their life expectancy is 11-16 years.
