As breeders at Weaver Family Farms Puppies, we've had the joy of watching countless Cavapoo puppies grow from tiny newborns, no bigger than a mouse, to vibrant one-year-old companions in their new homes. Let me take you through this incredible journey and share some fascinating facts about Cavapoos along the way.
The Newborn Stage: Tiny Wonders
When Cavapoo puppies are born, they are incredibly small, almost the size of a mouse. It's a delicate time, and we ensure they receive all the care and attention needed. These first days are crucial for their development.
The First Year: A Time of Rapid Growth
Watching a Cavapoo puppy grow in its first year is a remarkable experience. They transform from tiny, dependent creatures into playful, affectionate, and somewhat independent dogs.
Appearance at One Year
By the time they reach one year old, Cavapoos have usually grown to their full size, though some may continue to fill out a bit more. They typically weigh between 16 to 20 pounds, depending on their specific mix and genetics. Their coats, a blend of their Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Poodle heritage, are soft, often curly or wavy, and come in a variety of colors including cream, fawn, chocolate, gold, chestnut, and sometimes even patterns like merle.
Temperament and Personality
Cavapoos are known for their friendly and affectionate nature. By one year old, they've usually developed a playful, loving personality. They are great with children and other pets, making them ideal family dogs. Their intelligence, inherited from their Poodle lineage, makes them quick learners and responsive to training. Some may ask, what is their personality when only a few weeks old, however they do not really have one at that stage.
Health and Care
As they grow, we pay close attention to their health and well-being. Regular vet check-ups, vaccinations, and a balanced diet are crucial. Cavapoos are generally healthy, but like all breeds, they can be prone to certain genetic health issues, which is why responsible breeding and health screening are so important.
Our Commitment as Breeders
At Weaver Family Farms Puppies, our commitment to each Cavapoo puppy doesn't end when they leave our farm. We love keeping in touch with families and hearing about our puppies' progress. It's incredibly rewarding to see them thriving in their forever homes.
The journey from a newborn to a cavapoo ready to leave us to its new home at 8-10 weeks of age is filled with love, care, and growth. These puppies bring so much joy and companionship into the lives of their families. If you're considering a Cavapoo as your next furry family member, we'd be delighted to share more about our puppies and help you find the perfect match.
