What country and city are you from?
We are from Manchester, United Kingdom

How did you decide to have a cavapoo and why?
I met one on holiday and fell in love and immediately started researching the breed until I decided I definitely wanted one.

What is Merlot’s favorite food? Any recommendations on food for other cavapoo owners?
He loves eating just like me, he can have a full meal and still eye up my food. Although he does have a specific diet. He’s teething at the moment so he loves dental chews. I would recommend to keep the diet consistent to avoid any issues and allergies but also to help with behaviour.

What are your dog’s favorite toys or games?
He likes toys that he can chew he has a favourite bunny. He plays a game where it’s sort of like tug of war with one of his toys

What does your dog love doing most?
He enjoys being playful, he’s a lovable little baby and still snoozes a lot too.

Is there a funny story you could tell us about your cavapoo?
When I train him I use squeezy cheese because it’s more effective in my experience and it retains attention for longer. I taught him how to say hello by passing his paw. When he completed the task he continued to tap my hand with his paw with the view to get more cheese.

What do you love most about your cavapoo?
He’s very affectionate and extremely intelligent.

What are the good sides of having a cavapoo?
Goods are that he’s lovable and so easy to train. He’s playful and always up for an adventure but also happy to relax and laze around and do nothing. He gets on with everyone and doesn’t malt.

What are some downsides to having a cavapoo?
He can be somewhat clingy and attention seeking but with time and persistence this can be managed.

Does your cavapoo shed much and how do you deal with it?
He doesn’t shed at all. He’s supposedly hypoallergenic.

Do you travel with your cavapoo? What do you do when you need to go on vacation? (Pet sitter? Dog hotel? 🙂
His first vacation will be this Christmas and we intend to take him with us. Other times we’d leave him with family.

Would you recommend other people to have a cavapoo, why or why not?
I would recommend cavapoo to someone who have the time and patience to dedicate to the nurturing of a cavapoo as they do like love and attention and like company.

Cavapoo or Cavoodle? 😉 (Or cavadoodle?)
