What type of coat / coats do cavoodles have ?

Cavoodles may take after either parent when it comes to their coat. A shorter curly coat means that the Cavoodle’s Poodle genetics is more dominant. If your Cavoodle’s coat is of a longer length and silkier, then the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel genetics are more dominant. Both coat types require the same levels of care, and the differences between them are more or less cosmetic (although Poodle coats will often shed less than a Cavalier’s coat.
