“Couldn’t be better! Bridgett was responsible, dependable, and she seemed to really enjoy interacting with our pet. I will definitely use her services again, and I will recommend her to others in the area.”
Cavapoos are a magnificent breed.
AKA Cavoodles or Cavadoodles, Cavapoos are loyal, smart, and intelligent. They are warm and gentle, with an easy going disposition, and their favorite activity is cuddling with their family. They are easy to train and quite biddable, so the stress that typically comes with raising a puppy is non existent. You will find they are pleasant through and through and mature quickly.
At SBK our goal is to breed Cavapoo puppies who will be full grown at 15-20 pounds (standard size is 12-25 pounds). We breed for reds: from Apricot to Dark Red, with abstract and parti (red with white markings.)
Q: Why is your waitlist for Cavapoo puppies so long?
A: Our waitlist is currently 5 months long. At one point it was 18-24 months. A good breeder will maintain a waitlist – this ensures that no puppy is born without a home. There is also currently a national puppy shortage, which is leading to rampant scams so any breeder without a waitlist should get a thorough second and third glance – that may be a scam.
Q: How much are your Cavapoo puppies? Do you offer discounts?
A: Our puppies are all $3,500, with a nonrefundable $500 deposit. Think of it as a commitment fee – it ensures that each puppy has a home before being born. The average cavapoo litter is 3-5 puppies, and we max our deposits at 3 per litter. We also maintain a general waitlist, and if the litter size is bigger than 3 puppies, we first go to our next deposits, then to our general inquiry list (those who have no yet placed a deposit but expressed interest.)
Q: Do you have teacup or mini Cavapoo puppies?
A: No. The breed standard is 12-25 pounds, and we prefer our puppies to be full grown in the 15-20 pound range. This is the perfect size to ensure you are still able to easily pick up and carry your dog, but not so small that they risk injury from being under foot or children.
My name is Bridgett.
I’m the owner and founder of Sleeping Bear Kennels, Michigan’s Cavapoo Breeder. Our goal here at SBK is to breed puppies who have the ability to go on for service, emotional support, and therapy work, and as well behaved family companions. We are passionate about training your puppy to live with you and your family. I am a wife, mother of four, and mom to lots of fur kids, too. Knowing how important this decision is to add a new member to your family is, I thank you for considering us.
