Size up your cavoodle for a dog life jacket and rashie

Cavoodles, also known as cavapoos, are fast becoming one of Australia's most popular dog breeds! These designer dogs are a cross between cavalier king charles spaniels and poodles and are known for their friendly and affectionate nature, as well as their low-shedding coat that is popular among people with allergies.

If you've just had a cavoodle join your family, you may be wondering whether they're good swimmers. Cavalier king charles spaniels were originally bred as hunting dogs and are known to enjoy water, while poodles were bred as water retrievers and are generally good swimmers. So, it's possible your pup may have inherited swimming prowess and a love of water from both of their parents!

Before you schedule your next beach day, you'll need a few sun and water essentials for your pup. Well, you've come to the right place! Let us help you size up your cavoodle for a dog life jacket and sun protective dog rashie

Sizing up your cavoodle isn't always straight forward as they come in different sizes, depending on the size of their poodle parent. A cavoodle that is bred with a standard poodle parent will typically be larger, weighing between 11 to 25 kilograms and standing up to 45cm tall at the shoulder.

Standard cavoodles should try a size L dog life jacket, and may take either a size L or size XL dog rashie.

A cavoodle that is bred with a miniature poodle parent will be smaller, weighing between 5 to 10 kilograms and standing up to 35cm tall at the shoulder.

Miniature cavoodles will usually take a size M dog life jacket and either a size S or size M dog rashie.

Finally, a cavoodle that is bred with a toy poodle parent will be even smaller, weighing between 3 to 6 kilograms and standing up to 28cm tall at the shoulder.

Our size S dog life jacket is perfect for tiny toy cavoodles weighing under 4kg, with stockier toy poodles usually taking the size M. Toy cavoodles often suit a size XS or S dog rashie. 

Sandy Snoots dog rashies come in both standard and long lengths to ensure every pup gets the best coverage. If your cavoodle is a bit of a noodle (pun definitely intended!) you should select the long length.

Of course, if you need a helping paw choosing the right size for your cavoodle, contact us anytime via our Store Chat or email hello@sandysnoots.com.au. You can also refer to our handy size chart for full details of our size range.
