Because of how recent the Cavapom is, their temperament and personalities will vary from dog to dog. However, based on the natures of the parents, we can assume they are extremely friendly dogs who like lots of attention and love from their ‘hoomans’. Additionally, they are thought to be relatively easy to train, and to an extent, even good guard dogs! Overall, these sweet pooches are sure to make lovely family pets, so long as they receive the necessary training and socialization.
The Cavapom is a relatively recent ‘designer breed’ and is essentially a cross between a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel and a Pomeranian. These designer breeds have come about due to ‘hoomans’ want to have dogs that are more unique-looking than your everyday breed, but that also possess attractive traits and characteristics. However, the newness of the breed means that there is a lot of variance between pups when they are born. For example, the Cavapom may have the long hair from its parent the Pom, or a more Spaniel-like appearance from its other parent, the King Charles.
