As a child, from the ages of 5 to 15, I would periodically ask my mother if we could get a dog. The answer was as consistent as it was emphatic: “No!”. Unfortunately, my parents just weren’t dog people and, in the end, I had to settle for a cat.
25 years then passed until I was in a position to get a dog of my own. I’m not yet a parent, however, my cavapoo, Alfie, has been around lots of children and babies. He has been nothing but calm and loving with all of them. I can therefore confirm, based on my own first-hand experience and research, that cavapoos make fantastic family pets. This affirmation is based largely on the cavapoo’s temperament; they are loving, patient, and lively.
