How big do cavapoos get?

When researching which breed of dog is right for you, size is an important factor to consider. A dog’s size typically correlates with things like; how much space and exercise a dog needs, how much food it will eat, etc. Therefore, it’s vital to choose a dog of a size that suits your home, lifestyle and budget.

The cavapoo is a small to medium-sized dog. When fully grown, the cavapoo’s height (measured from paw to shoulder) ranges from 12 to 15 inches (30 to 38cm), and weight can range from 11 to 24lbs (5 to 11kg).

Do cavapoos sleep a lot?

Wondering how many hours a day your cavapoo will slumber, leaving you at peace to work, do chores or maybe even take your own nap? An adult cavapoo will sleep for 15 hours per day, that is typically comprised of sleeping throughout the night with several naps throughout the day. Smart owners will soon realise that a morning walk first thing (45 minutes to one hour) is an excellent way to stimulate both dog and owner.

It is very noticeable when my cavapoo hasn’t had his morning walk, he is more restless and sometimes mischievous.

How to treat cavapoo parasites – worms, ticks and fleas

My cavapoo, Alfie, in the last couple of months experienced both his first tick and flea infestation. Would you know what to look out for and how best to treat your cavapoo in these scenarios? Let’s dive into this slightly skin-crawling topic below!

Best Cavapoo Breeders in the UK

Looking to get a cavapoo puppy but struggling to find a good breeder? As the cavapoo has grown in popularity in recent years, a select few UK-based breeders have chosen to specialise in this relatively new crossbreed. The majority of cavapoo puppies available for sale are from amateur breeders who have bred their family pet as a one-off event.

Since the cavapoo is not an established “pure” breed, there are very few reputable cavapoo breeders out there, and those that do exist can be hard to find.

A good cavapoo breeder is focused on producing healthy litters of pups with good temperaments, over attempting to achieve a certain aesthetic (all cavapoos are adorable). Below, I have attempted to compile a comprehensive and up to date list of the UK’s top cavapoo breeders. These are breeders who are still actively breeding F1 cavapoos, and have a good reputation for their experience in producing healthy litters of puppies.
