Cavoodle FAQ

How do I find a breeder with Cavoodle puppies for sale?

There are a number of different methods to find the Cavoodle puppy that would suit you and your family. Cavoodles can still be classed as being fairly rare at this stage and locating a Cavoodle breeder can be a little difficult but one of the best ways is to go through a breeders agent as they will have contact with many different breeders and are the first to be informed of litters available. A reputable breeders agent can provide you with information to help you care for your Cavoodle puppy as well as ensuring that the puppy has had the appropriate vaccinations, worming, microchipping etc and has all the supporting documents.

We have found Chevromist Kennels to be exemplary in their level of knowledge of the breed as well as being unmatched in their high level of service to new owners both before and after adopting a puppy. We have no hesitation in recommending Chevromist Kennels to anyone in Australia and nearby countries wishing to adopt a Cavoodle puppy. You can visit their website with photos of their beautiful puppies at www.chevromist.com. They also have notification lists that are free to join to be notified of future litters if you are planning to adopt a puppy in the future or waiting to hear of the next litter available.

What is the price of a Cavoodle Puppy? 

The average cost of a Cavoodle puppy in Australia is about $2500 – $5000 depending on the quality of the Cavoodle puppy, heath testing (such as for PRA) and taking in the differences between different breeders. Cavoodle puppies can be found for a cheaper price but the quality of the dogs will be evident. The initial cost of a dog may seem high but a few extra dollars spent upfront for a 12 – 15 year companion will save you a ton of expense and heartache down the road. Wherever you choose to buy your Cavoodle should be available for ongoing support for you and your family. References from owners of previous puppies will greatly assist you in making your decision. As Cavoodles have a low dumpage rate, they rarely turn up in shelters.

How much does a Cavoodle cost to keep?

It costs about $10 to $15 per week on average in Australia to keep a Cavoodle, but the sky is the limit on how much you can spend on your new little companion. (And we all like to spoil them a bit!)

Are there many Cavoodle breeders?

At the moment the Cavoodle is still a fairly rare dog breed but their popularity is rising rapidly in Australia but also in dog loving nations around the world. Even in Australia the number of active Cavoodle breeders is estimated to be less than 100.

Are Cavoodles good with children?

Cavoodles are fantastic with gentle and respectful kids and love to keep them company. They develop a strong bond with children but young children should be supervised, in particular when the dog is a puppy to avoid accidental injury.

Are Cavoodles suitable for older people?

Being a dog breed that has a relatively light build, they are easily handled by older members of our community and do not normally knock over frail people. This is especially so with Toy Cavoodles being smaller than the Miniature Cavoodles.

Do Cavoodles make good watch dogs?

Yes, Cavoodles make great little watch dogs with their alert nature and natural inquisitiveness, but if you are looking for an intimidating guard dog to bite intruders, you will be disappointed!
