The Sleeping Habits of Cavoodles

Sleeping Cavoodle | The Cute Cavoodle

Ever wondered about the sleeping habits of Cavoodles?

These lovable mixed-breed dogs have their own unique way of catching some Z’s from snuggling up on the couch to snoozing in their cozy beds.

So in this article, we’re going to delve into the fascinating world of Cavoodle sleep patterns.


Cavoodles are known for their Cavoodle adaptability, and this extends to their sleep routines as well. Just like humans, they have different sleep needs depending on their age, health, and energy levels.

As puppies, Cavoodles tend to sleep more, often napping multiple times throughout the day. As they grow older, their sleep patterns become more similar to those of adult dogs.

How long do Cavoodles sleep?

As Polly has aged, her sleep pattern has definitely changed. She can sleep most of the day and then again through the night. Oh to live a dog’s life 😅

The average adult Cavoodle can sleep for approximately 12 to 14 hours a day, although individual variations can occur. This sleep time includes both daytime naps and nighttime sleep. It’s important to note that this is an average estimate, and some Cavoodles may sleep more or less depending on their individual needs.

Where do they sleep?

When it comes to preferred sleeping spots, Cavoodles often enjoy the cozy comforts of their beds or designated sleep areas. Providing them with a comfortable bed can help create a sense of security and relaxation. Many Cavoodles also enjoy curling up on soft blankets or pillows, as the cozy texture provides an added sense of comfort.

Polly certainly loves her soft blanketed space on the sofa, her doggy bed, or even a spot in the sun during the day but when it comes to the night, she’s a lover of being up on the bed.

We work from home so we don’t get too precious or fussy with creating a quiet space for her sleep environment. She has to fit in and this is one reason why a Cavoodle is a good breed.

How about at night?

As the evening approaches, Cavoodles often wind down and prepare for a good night’s sleep. They may exhibit certain bedtime rituals, such as stretching, finding a comfortable position, and even pawing at their bed or blankets to create a cozy nest (Polly loves to do this).

Some Cavoodles enjoy sleeping next to their human companions (that’s a BIG yes), while others prefer a dedicated sleep space nearby.

You can experiment to find out what works best for your Cavoodle and ensures a restful night for all.

What are the stages of sleep?

Cavoodles, like all dogs (even like humans), experience different sleep stages, including both light sleep and deep sleep. During the lighter stages, they may twitch, move their paws, or even make soft noises as they dream. It’s a funny sight to witness their little legs running in their dreams or their cute facial expressions while they sleep.

Importance of Consistency

Providing a consistent sleep routine and a comfortable sleep environment can contribute to a Cavoodle’s overall well-being. Establishing a regular bedtime routine can help them relax and settle down for the night. Additionally, incorporating regular exercise and mental stimulation during the day can promote better sleep quality.


In conclusion, understanding the sleeping habits of Cavoodles can help us provide them with the care they need to rest and rejuvenate. From their daytime naps to their bedtime routines, Cavoodles enjoy the comforts of a cozy bed and a peaceful environment.

By creating a sleep-friendly atmosphere and addressing their individual sleep needs, you can ensure that your Cavoodle experiences restful slumber, contributing to their overall health and happiness.

So, next time you see your Cavoodle snuggled up for a nap, know that they are enjoying their well-deserved beauty sleep, preparing for more adventures alongside their beloved humans.
