Cadoodles size can vary depending on the size of the Poodle used to breed. A Cadoodle can either be small to medium sized.
Cadoodles are great family dogs. They will protect their loved ones, but are also great around children and other pets. Some Cadoodles can be shy and will need to be watched when they are next to strangers.
The Cadoodle has a life expectancy of 12-14 years. Cadoodles (like many hybrid dogs) do not have very many serious health issues.
Grooming Requirements – Cadoodles need to have regular grooming to prevent their coats from becoming entangled and matted. However, grooming is dependant upon which breed the Cadoodle inherits it's coat from. Cadoodles which inherit the coat traits from Poodles require more grooming than Cadoodles that inherit coat traits from Collies.
Exercise Requirements – Cadoodles require regular exercise and will need one to two walks daily to stay happy. They are fairly active and need to be both physically and mentally exercised.
Living Requirements – Cadoodles are great family dogs and do well in both small apartments and outside fenced in areas.
