Meet Milo, the cavapoo from London, UK and his human Mom Lani. Milo is a total cutie and you should definitely follow him at his instagram account at @milocavapooroberts. I hope you enjoy this conversation with Milo and his mom!
What is your name? (meaning Human’s name 🙂
Lani … but he was bought for Eliana (my daughter)
What is the name of your dog?Why did you choose that name?
Milo Bailey – My daughter has been choosing dog names for the last ten years! She had her heart set on Bailey and but then when we met our fur baby for the first time she said ‘mum he looks more like a Milo!’ She felt torn because she was set on Bailey, hence our Milo getting a middle name.
How old is Milo?
He turned 1 in August.
What country and city are you from?
How did you decide to have a cavapoo and why?
We did a lot of research into low shedding dogs and dogs that were good with kids.
At first we thought we’d go for a Cockapoo but then we came across a page about Cavapoos. KC Spaniel has always been a favourite with us but I worried about certain health issues and shedding.
When we came across the Cavapoo that was it! Instantly knew it was the breed for us. We wanted a dog to be a part of our family and to be loving and cuddly.
What is Milo’s favorite food? Any recommendations on food for other cavapoo owners?
Milo loves chicken and sweet potato. So much so that sometimes he actually whines while he eats it!!! We try to avoid giving him human food else he won’t go near his own. However if he sees the biscuit tin he’ll bark and bark until he gets half a rich tea or if the toaster pops he’ll stop whatever he’s doing and dash to it and sit expectantly.
What are your dog’s favorite toys or games?
Milo loves being chased so will often grab a shoe or something else he shouldn’t and stares at us as if to say ‘you want it back? Come and get it!’
He also loves Ovo eggs and of course his Kong!
He loves stuffed toys but tears them to shreds in minutes. We are still grieving for Mr monkey… he lasted 3 minutes before losing his arm and by the evening he’d been disembowelled!
What does Milo love doing most?
Going for walks in the park and getting cuddles and belly rubs! He’s definitely a lap dog!! Oh and stealing socks!
Is there a funny story you could tell us about your cavapoo?
So many but my favourite is the time we went for a walk with his BFF Bobby the Jackabee. Milo disappeared only to reappear moments later covered in what looked like tar! It was actually pond scum and it stank! He kept trying to jump up on everybody as they ran away screaming.
We had to rinse it off in a lake. Mum was so cross as she had booked him in for a groom the next day and had spent ages brushing him in preparation that morning.
What do you love most about your cavapoo?
That he loves us more than anything. He’s always wanting to snuggle up.
What are the good sides of having a cavapoo?
Always have a loving companion by your side. Extremely trainable and lots of fun.
What are some downsides to having a cavapoo?
Never wanting to leave your side lol. They can get separation anxiety and so don’t get one unless you’re committed to spending lots of time with them.
Does your cavapoo shed much and how do you deal with it?
Not at all. But it is important to brush their coats daily else they can get matted.
Do you travel with your cavapoo? What do you do when you need to go on vacation? (Pet sitter? Dog hotel? 🙂
He comes on holiday too! If we can’t take him with us he stays with grandparents.
Would you recommend other people to have a cavapoo, why or why not?
YES!!! Cavapoos are so clever and the most loyal and loving companion you could ever hope for. They’ll love cuddles as much as they love walks. But they don’t like being left alone. Milo is so attached to me and greets me like I’ve been away for a month if I just pop out for 5 minutes.
Cavapoo or Cavoodle? 😉 (Or cavadoodle?)
