Health and care of Cavoodles
Thanks to the benefits of crossbreeding, the Cavoodle is blessed with a more diverse genetic makeup than purebreds, making them less susceptible to the issues that may afflict their parent breeds. This genetic diversity adds up to an average lifespan of 10–14 years.
Cavoodles do well in apartments and small homes with small yards. This playful, affectionate companion does not like to be left alone, and some may expect round-the-clock companionship. Make sure to give your Cavoodle plenty of attention and daily exercise. While they don’t require much exercise, they will still need regular walks and runs.
The start of your relationship should be marked with a visit to your veterinarian. They may tell you to keep an eye out for genetic problems, such as slipping kneecaps, eye defects or congenital heart problems. That said, you and your family can expect to enjoy many years of warm companionship with a Cavoodle.
The Cavoodle is not generally as hyperactive as some other breeds, but still adores human companionship. In all, this is an intelligent dog, suitable for all age groups and most lifestyles.
