Cavachon vs Cavapoo

One of our favorite Doodle breeds at Crockett Doodles are our adorable Cavapoos! Many families come to us wanting an adorable, affectionate puppy that will be their constant companion. From these families, we frequently get the question of “What is the difference between a Cavapoo and a Cavachon?” We hope to answer that question for you today by detailing the characteristics of each of these breeds below.

Cavapoo Characteristics

Cavapoos are a mix of a Poodle and a purebred Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Cavapoos are adorable little puppies that exemplify the “Teddy Bear” look. They are generally the same size and color as Cavachons yet are known to have a more laid-back energy. Cavapoos are commonly born in the colors of red, red and white, apricot, tri-color, and Blenheim. We have two size ranges for our Cavapoos – Toy/Petite Cavapoos will grow to 5-24 pounds and Traditional Mini Cavapoos will grow to 25-40 pounds.

Cavapoo puppies are wonderful with children; they seldom meet a stranger and love being with people. They are some of the calmest of all doodle varieties. They seldom bark, and they love to cuddle. They require less exercise than Cavachons and are generally quite happy in apartments and homes with smaller yards. Cavapoos are an excellent choice for families who are looking for a calmer, quieter dog with a more relaxed personality.

Cavapoos are a slightly older breed than Cavachons and have sky-rocketed in popularity due to their calm temperaments and gorgeous looks.

Cavachon Characteristics

Cavachons are a hybrid mix between Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and Bichon Frise dog breeds. This mix creates a puppy that is energetic, friendly, and extremely loyal. Whereas Cavapoos are known for being calmer and more affectionate, Cavachons are known for being energetic and playful. Cavachons are usually born with red, red and white, apricot, and Blenheim coats that are very curly to wavy in texture. Most Cavachons fall into the Toy/Petite, 5-24 pound range, and do well in urban environments as long as they are taken on regular walks or have a dog park nearby.

Cavachons love to play! They are a good choice for families with younger children or couples wanting a small but active companion to join them on their adventures. They are very friendly but have a bond with their families that can cause them to be a little protective at times. They typically do well with other animals in the home as they can become melancholy without enough social interaction.

Cavachons are a little puppy with a big personality. They would be an excellent choice for a home that has plenty of love to give and enjoys going on walks!

In Conclusion

While both of these breeds are a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel mix, the main difference between the two are their energy levels. Both tend to be hypoallergenic, loyal, and loving, but the Cavachon breed needs more regular exercise and socialization. We would recommend Cavapoos for families who are wanting a more relaxed Doodle who will be their constant companion. We would recommend Cavachons for families wanting a playful, energetic puppy to add to their home.

We hope this helps you on your journey to finding which puppy is right for you!
