The Cavapoo is a cross between the Cavalier King Charles and the Miniature Poodle. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses. Note: some Cavapoo clubs are working towards making the Cavapoo a purebred dog by multi-generation crossing, while other breeders are sticking to the basic Poodle / Cavalier mix stating they wish to preserve the heterosis effect in the hybrid mix.
Overall the CavaPoos were bred to take the personality cuddly traits of the Cavalier and mixing them with the highly intelligent, non-shedding traits of the Miniature Poodle. Together they are a smart cuddly companion!
