How did you decide to have a cavapoo and why?
We were after a dog that was happy to snuggle with us and be relaxed, but also after one that had enough energy to go for a run with my husband. This is little guy was the perfect mix!
What is Sheppard’s favorite food? 
Boiled chicken! Can smell it from a mile away!
What are Sheppard’s favorite toys or games?
Tail chasing, fetch and croc wrestling! He has a plush croc toy that takes the brunt of his playtime.

Zoomies, right before bed. We have a long hallway that is basically a dog run for him.

Is there a funny story you could tell us about your cavapoo?
He had the zoomies right before bed (as per usual) and zoomed a bit hard and ran straight into the ranch slider!

How much he loves us!
What are the good sides of having a cavapoo?
Great company. They just want to see you happy! I love having my little guy around. It feels like we have always had him.

We do struggle a fair amount when we leave the room or house with him getting upset that we have gone.

Does Sheppard shed much and how do you deal with it?
Barely sheds at all! He just gets a daily brush to stop the dreads!

 

Do you travel with your cavapoo? What do you do when you need to go on vacation? (Pet sitter? Dog hotel? 🙂
We haven’t travelled with him yet, but are looking forward to going on camping adventures with him! We will look at sending him to a friend or a dog hotel when we do have to (sadly) leave him behind.
Would you recommend other people to have a cavapoo, why or why not?
Yes, if you love a snuggler! These guys are so sweet and will do anything for you! We love our wee guy and
