COCKAPOO vs CAVAPOO

APPEARANCES

Cockapoos and Cavapoos are similar in appearance

MAINTENANCE

Cockapoos are the offspring of the American Cocker Spaniel and the Miniature Poodle. F1 babies usually mature with a long wavy coat and are maintained with clippers and/or scissors.

Cavapoos are the offspring of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and the Miniature or Toy Poodle. F1 babies mature with a shorter wavy coat than the Cockapoo and can be maintained with clippers and/or scissors.

Note: There are exceptions to coat (sometimes) if the baby would pull more genes from the Sire loose curly hair will result.

It is highly recommended  that occasional grooming and a minimum of weekly brushing for the babies, but as they love the attention, more frequent brushing will appreciated by them. Scheduled baths as with all breeds are required, some babies enjoy the water and will relish a bath, there is nothing wrong with that, just remember to not use soap with frequent baths as it will remove the essential oils from their skin.

 

BREED SIZE

Cavapoos are smaller in height and weight than the Cockapoo babies, in reference to F1 babies. Cavapoos are typically 12-14 inches in height whereas Cockapoos range about 1 to 2 inches taller. Healthy weights range in Cavapoos from up to 20 pounds and Cockapoos up to 25 pounds. Weight of course is dependent on Diet, Exercise and lineage of the breeding Parents.

 

COAT COLORATION

Colors are entirely dependent on lineage of the breeding Parents.

 

TEMPERAMENT

Generally both breeds are happy, loving and eager to please. This of course depends on the rearing of the baby by their forever parents. A puppy will of course display separation anxiety if left alone abruptly, this is easily corrected by early training. Place the baby in a crate or pen for their safety and leave the house for 15 or 20 minutes, gradually increase this time over a period of time. This will show the baby that you will be back and they should not suffer the anxiety. Never leave a baby for more than 8 to a maximum of 10 hours unattended, they should be outside potty trained if possible and extended alone hours are impossible for a young one to hold themselves.

HEALTH

Both breeds are quite healthy and will live into their teens, of course diet, routine vaccinations and vet checks are a necessary part of their continued health.
