Golden Cavadoodles are a triple cross specialty breed of golden retriever, cavalier, and mini poodle. The mothers are a crossbreed of either mini goldendoodle or golden cavalier, and paired with a purebred cavalier to the mini goldendoodle or mini poodle to the golden cavalier. Regardless of the pairing, each litter offers a mix of coats from silky spaniel straight coat to shaggy to fluffy.
If the Golden Cavalier is an active dog with an ‘off’ switch, then a Golden Cavadoodle offers similar benefits, if not a more chill countenance. These guys are perfect for first time dog owners, those with allergies, or those with smaller spaces and who might be less active. Though don’t let the size fool you.
Whether you say Golden Cavadoodle or Golden Cavapoo, each pup has plenty of puppy energy and are as eager for playtime and walks as their Golden Cavalier cousins.
It All Begins With That First Look!
We all know it. The secret puppy body language. It’s their most resourceful tool! An instinct as natural as breathing. One raised eyebrow followed by the gentle furry head tilt. Then BAM!! Right on cue the BIG widening of the eyes. We melt; spellbound by the Golden Cavadoodles stuffed animal face. Our voices rise as our defenses fall. These puppies are born mastering cuteness while completely skipping the entire learning curve. It’s an unexplainable joy and happiness everyone should experience.
Puppies Leave a Lasting Impression.
Every childhood dream includes loving a puppy. It’s quite amazing how many puppies can fit onto Santa’s sleigh! Kids become very passionate about their wishes. A study conducted by OnePoll and commissioned by Spin Master reports kids on average will beg their parents for a pet more than 1,500 times before the age of 18! Some may think that number is low! Kids understand their campaign is more than extra clean up time. They realize the bond they are willing to share with a dog will be returned right back to them.
The Family Dog – Kids Growing Up With More.
Research in Journal Pediatrics shows children growing up in a home with a pet during their first year of life are likely to be healthier when compared to children who do not live with pets. It has to do with a child’s exposure to pets stimulating the immune system to do a better job. Shorter durations of infection and a longer range of better health were recorded. In addition, the frequency of asthma, hay fever and eczema may possibly be reduced in children ages of 7-9. The number of pets in infancy is tied to a lower allergy risk reported by researcher, Bill Hesselmar. When kids are raised with dogs the benefits are truly amazing!
Dogs teach kids about responsibility. Valuable life lessons become reality when children have the opportunity to love a puppy. A puppy’s daily care is just the beginning steps toward accountability, independence and consequences. Giving a child permission to problem solve and practice critical thinking is crucial in the early years. Everyday chores such as bathroom time, grooming, feeding and providing love are unique situations that require important answers. A child’s response will foster their own meaning of routine and structure. It’s a pursuit toward a common good, made possible by a dog’s bond.
Golden Cavadoodles have that connectability factor! They are social, energetic and adore playtime! They crave time spent outdoors exploring and burning off energy! Children with dogs are more active reports Live Science. Children growing up with dogs spend 11 more minutes a day on average participating in some form of active movement compared to those without dogs. It really accumulates! That would be over 4000 extra minutes over the span of 1 year! A cycle of motivation toward a healthy body weight for both dog and child. Dogs help kids learn to love exercise!
Doggie playtime sharpens kids’ social skills. All furry companions make excellent pretend play partners! Did someone say, ‘Let’s play hide and go seek’? Dogs stimulate interaction and kids follow suit. Dogs are particularly important for an only child. Areas of separation anxiety and social anxiety significantly stand out favoring pet ownership as stated by researchers. Dogs offer sensory stress relief through petting and grooming, which is an easy way to manage childhood stresses and possibly loneliness. Golden Cavadoodles are highly adaptable. They are patient enough to chill allowing a child to take the lead or they will introduce the challenge! These interplays build self-esteem and confidence. Their non-aggressive nature makes them a young child’s very first best fur-end.
Adults Growing Forward With Dogs.
Becoming an empty nester or a retiree has its joys, but also its drawbacks. Freetime can grow unexpectedly long. The drive to be physically active can diminish. As adults navigate these changes it’s nice to know there is an entire community of people walking the very same path. Late adulthood is happening everywhere. Dogs inspire us to be goofy and remind us right now is the right time to be less serious. When life calls for a reorganization look no further than the Golden Cavadoodle!

Getting a Dog After Retirement – Why It’s The Best Thing Ever!
- Dogs keep seniors active and improve energy levels.
