1. Choosing the Right Cavoodle Puppies

The journey to raising a happy and healthy Cavoodle begins with selecting the perfect puppy for your family. As a reputable and registered puppy breeder, we take pride in breeding Cavoodle puppies with exceptional temperament, health, and conformation. When choosing your Cavoodle puppy, consider factors such as temperament, size, coat type, and energy level. Doing so ensures compatibility with your lifestyle and preferences. Take the time to interact with different puppies and observe their behavior to find the one that steals your heart.


2. Providing a Nutritious Diet for Cavoodle Puppies

Nutrition plays a vital role in the overall health and well-being of your Cavoodle puppy. As active and energetic companions, Cavoodle puppies require a balanced diet rich in nutrients to support their growth and development. Choose high-quality puppy food specifically formulated for small breeds, and ensure proper portion control to prevent overfeeding. Consult with your veterinarian to establish a schedule and dietary plan tailored to your puppy’s age, weight, and activity level. Remember to provide plenty of fresh water at all times to keep your puppy hydrated and happy.

3. Grooming and Coat Care for Cavoodle Puppies

Cavoodles are known for their luxurious coats, which require regular grooming to keep them looking their best. Establishing a grooming routine early on will not only help maintain your puppy’s coat health but also strengthen your bond. Brush your Cavoodle puppy’s coat regularly to remove tangles, prevent matting, and distribute natural oils. Schedule regular baths using a gentle dog shampoo formulated for sensitive skin to keep their coat clean and healthy. Don’t forget to trim your puppy’s nails, clean their ears, and brush their teeth to promote overall hygiene and well-being.


4. Training and Socialisation

Proper training and socialisation are essential components of raising a well-behaved and well-adjusted Cavoodle puppy. Start training early using positive reinforcement techniques such as treats, praise, and rewards to encourage behaviors and discourage unwanted ones. Focus on basic obedience commands like sit, stay, come, and heel, and introduce more advanced training as your puppy grows. Additionally, prioritise socialisation by exposing your puppy to different people, animals, environments, and experiences. This will help them develop confidence, adaptability, and good manners.

5. Veterinary Care and Health Maintenance

Regular veterinary care is crucial for ensuring the long-term health and happiness of your Cavoodle puppy. Schedule routine wellness exams, vaccinations, and parasite prevention treatments to protect your puppy against common illnesses and health threats. Be vigilant for signs of illness or discomfort, such as changes in appetite, energy level, behavior, or bathroom habits. Seek prompt veterinary attention if any concerns arise. Establish open communication with your veterinarian and discuss any questions or concerns you may have regarding your puppy’s health, nutrition, behavior, or development.


6. Exercise and Physical Activity

Regular exercise is essential for keeping your Cavoodle puppy physically and mentally stimulated. Incorporate daily walks, play sessions, and interactive games to provide opportunities for exercise, exploration, and enrichment. As a small breed with moderate energy levels, Cavoodle puppies enjoy activities like fetch, agility courses, and short hikes. Be mindful of your puppy’s age, size, and fitness level when planning exercise routines.  Also, avoid overexertion or strenuous activities that could cause injury. Remember to supervise outdoor play and ensure your puppy’s safety at all times, especially in unfamiliar or potentially hazardous environments.


7. Creating a Safe and Comfortable Environment

Creating a safe and comfortable environment is essential for ensuring your Cavoodle puppy’s well-being and happiness. Puppy-proof your home by removing potential hazards such as toxic plants, small objects, electrical cords, and sharp edges. Provide a designated space for your puppy to rest, relax, and retreat when needed, equipped with a cozy bed, toys, and water bowl. Establish a consistent daily routine for feeding, exercise, play, and rest to promote stability and predictability for your puppy. Consider crate training as a valuable tool for housebreaking, confinement, and travel. This ensures your puppy feels secure and supported in their new surroundings. By prioritising safety, comfort, and routine, you’ll create a nurturing environment where your Cavoodle puppy can thrive and flourish.
