Before you contact a Cavapoo breeder to adopt your pup: Cavapoo owner reviews
Lydia, about her Cavapoo Casper
My husband and I have been thinking of getting a dog for quite a long time. At first, we weren’t sure about the breed. Then my friend told me about cavapoo and I fell in love with those little faces once I saw their pictures on the internet. At that moment, it was pretty much decided. We were getting a cavapoo!
It took us almost a year to find a good breeder and to bring our baby cavapoo home. Casper is now almost one year old, so I feel like I can somewhat confidently review the breed!
Casper was the smallest pup in the litter, but he’s growing up quite nicely and now he isn’t that small at all but a standard Cavapoo size. He also eats very well. He is like a little vacuum cleaner: he will inhale any food insight, especially if you drop something from the table. Not sure why I started my review with this personality quirk of his: maybe because it[;s his dominant trait? 🙂
He potty trained quite quickly as a puppy and we didn’t have too many issues with that. He did chew up a few slippers and a living room rug, as well as tried to destroy some of my books. But he is getting much less destructive the older he gets, so that’s good.
Casper is very smart, but can also be quite stubborn. Agin, he is getting better at listening to us as he grows older and mellows out a little, but he can still be quite a pain. If he decides he wants to do something, nothing will stop him. You have to have quite a bit of energy to make him behave properly, and sometimes we wonder if we are too soft on him.
Despite his stubbornness, Casper is extremely loving and affectionate. He is so people-oriented. He doesn’t much attention to other dogs at all, but people are absolutely his favorite. He is very popular among our neighbors: everyone wants to pet him, hug him or pick him up. And he is all for it! He loves attention and just soaks it all up. He acts like he totally knows he is a star.
Cavapoo do need some grooming, but not that much. We usually clean his eyes and ears a few times a week, otherwise, they get a little messy. We try to brush him daily to keep his coat smooth and clean, but he doesn’t like being brushed very much. He isn’t a fan of bathing either but has to tolerate it at least once a week, more if he has found a mud puddle he couldn’t miss.
In terms of feeding, we fed him dog food for a while and then began feeding more natural food due to some allergies he started to develop. Now we feed mostly meat, some vegetables such as carrots, some grains (he loves oatmeal). He’d also eat apples, bananas, anything sweet (Not chocolate of course!). He seems to be allergic to chicken and turkey, so we cut that out of his diet.
Our Cavapoo is very easy to train. He knows many commands, and I don’t really teach him all that much. He will sit, roll, lie down, bark and shake on command.
He looooves children. Casper loves everyone, really, but children are his special love. I think he feels that they are a little wild at heart, just like him. All our neighbors’ kids love him too and always ask if he’d come out to play.
All in all, cavapoo is a wonderful little dog with lots of personality. We wouldn’t be without our Casper, ever, even though he can be a pain in the butt sometimes. But the love you feel for this little dog and the love that it gives you is really worth it all!
