Frequently Asked Questions


How much are your puppies?

Our puppies are $2000 male or female + $162 tax.

What kind of food do you feed your puppies?

We feed our puppies Nature's Domain Puppy food which you can find at Costco. 

How do we switch our puppy's food?

To switch the puppy to a new type of food, do it gradually over the course of a week or two to avoid digestive issues. We will provide a sample bag of food but it would be wise if you bought a bag to mix with the new food. Mix the 3/4 of Nature's Domain food with 1/4 of new food for a couple of days. Then mix half and half for the next two days, and so on.

How much should my puppy eat each day?

To ensure that all of the puppies are eating well, we keep a dish with food in at all times. We recommend that you keep a feeding schedule for your puppy to make potty training easier. On the back of the bag of food, there should be a section with suggested feeding portions according to weight and age.

How often should my puppy eat?

0-6 months old= 3-4 times per day

6-12 months old= 2 times per day

Over 12 months old= 1 time per day

What vaccinations will my puppy have when he comes home?

If your puppy leaves by 8 weeks old it will have received 1 vaccination. We will provide a vaccination and health record for you to show your vet at the time of pick up.


Will my puppy have dew claws?

The majority of puppies are born with dew claws, which is the "thumb" claw on the front paws of a puppy. We remove the dew claws when the puppies are a couple of days old.

Do you offer a Health Guarantee for your puppies?

Yes, we offer a 2-year health guarantee. In case of a genetic disease, we would offer a replacement. If you would like to see the contract go to Purchasing a Puppy tab and click on the health guarantee button.

How does your waiting list work?

If you are ready for a puppy from My Cavapoos we highly recommend you get on the waiting list in order to have priority in choosing a puppy. The wait can be as short as 2 months or as long as 6 months. To be placed on the waiting list, we require a $300 deposit. We will not be depositing your check until the puppies have been born and you've chosen a puppy. Once the puppy has been chosen, your deposit becomes non-refundable. 

If once the puppies have been born and we don't have what you're looking for, you have the option of transferring your deposit to an upcoming litter or the option of canceling your deposit. If you decide not to transfer the deposit, we will simply shred your check and remove you from the list.

What is the difference between an Average and a Small Cavapoos?

Our average sized cavapoos, come from parents who are either toy or miniature poodles bred to a regular sized cavalier. Our small cavapoos come from parents who are toy poodles bred to a regular or small cavalier. 

The weight differences are: 

Average sized cavapoo 16-20+ lbs

Small cavapoo 12-15 lbs

Most of our pups will be average sized but once in a while we will have smaller sized cavapoos. 


What colors can Cavapoos be?

The main colors are Ruby, Black & Tan, Black & White, Apricot, Blenheim, Sable/Brindle, Tri, and Black. 

We cannot know for certain what colors each litter will bring, but the pairing of the parents sometimes give us an idea as to what to expect. 

How do I get my puppy home?

Well there a few options:

  • You are welcome to drive to our home to pick up your puppy.
  • You can fly to Spokane International Airport (GEG) and we will personally meet you there with your new adorable puppy! You'll need to inform the airlines that you'll be taking a puppy with you. There is usually a $95-$100 fee to take the puppy with you in-cabin. 
  •  We can meet those within driving distance at the airport on our airport delivery day(s). 

What age do the puppies leave My Cavapoos?

The puppies are ready to go at 8 weeks old. 

Should I continue to deworm my puppy?

Yes, we do our best to deworm while the pup is with us but puppies mouth everything so it's very easy for them to acquire worms/parasites. Puddles, dirt, grass, sticks, floors, and shoes can be the source so it's good to upkeep deworming. We let our pups be happy and run around outside so even though we deworm there is always the possibility that they need an additional dosage once they leave our home. Perks of living in the country and by a lake! (ugh!) The great thing is that they are easy to treat. You can get a fecal test at the vet and/or deworm regularly.
