F1Cavapoo = Cavalier King Charles Spaniel X Poodle
(50% Cavalier King Charles Spaniel -- 50% Poodle)
The first generation F1Cavapoo is produced by crossing a Poodle (Miniature or Toy) with a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. They are low shedding and the F1 Cavapoo is suitable for most families with MILD to SEMI-MODERATE allergies. Most F1Cavapoos will have straight to loose wavy gorgeous curls, but tight curls are possible as well. Their appearance can range from Cavalier features or those of the Poodle or somewhere inbetween. The first generation
benefits the most from hybrid vigor.
F1BCavapoo = F1Cavapoo X Poodle
(25% Cavalier King Charles Spaniel -- 75% Poodle)
The back-cross F1BCavapoo is produced by crossing an F1Cavapoo with a Poodle (Miniature or Toy), or with a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel (although it is very rare to cross back to a Cavalier). F1BCavapoos will have a higher success rate for non-shedding, and are recommended for families with MODERATE to SEVERE allergies. Tighter curls are more predominant in the F1BCavapoo, but looser curls and straighter coats do show up as well. Their appearance will lean more towards the Poodle features, but again, Cavalier features can be present.
