Cava-Tzu Characteristics

The Cava-Tzu is an adorable little active lap dog. A hybrid breed between the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and the Shih-Tzu, they are loyal, loving dogs who enjoy nothing more than spending time with their humans. Their small size makes them a great candidate for apartment living, but be sure to provide them with at least a brisk walk every day to ensure good health and happy behavior.

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Small
  • Trainability Determined

The Cava-Tzu is a small dog with a black, brown, or white coat, weighing in between 9-16 pounds and standing about 17 inches tall at the shoulder.  These dogs, like many small dogs, love to be held, and trust us when we say, people want to hold them! However, it is important to provide them with playtime or other forms of exercise to stay healthy.  
 
Like many small dogs, Cava-Tzus are prone to some dental issues. Experts say this is because of their smaller skulls and jaws, which can lead to overcrowding of the teeth. This overcrowding creates more spaces where food can get trapped, and bacteria can grow.  Just be sure you keep your regular appointments with the vet and keep your Cava-Tzu’s teeth clean.
 
Cava-Tzu’s have boundless personalities and often aren’t at all afraid to pick fights with large dogs. To help ensure your Cava-Tzu doesn’t find itself in trouble, introduce him to large dogs under close supervision and be prepared to break up any potential quarrels. They’re great with other animals and children when socialized and are affectionate, snuggly companions. 
 

How dog-friendly is California?

California’s dog lovers can rejoice – the state goes above and beyond in many areas of animal rights and care for our furry friends.

California loves dogs!

California’s dog-friendliness is clear right out of the gates when we look at their pet population. Californians own the most dogs of any state in the U.S., with a little over 40% of homes housing a canine friend. And of the 264 shelters in the state, 118 are no-kill shelters.


California has also enacted plenty of animal welfare laws to guard against people leaving pets in cars or abusing their pets. The state limits owners to four dogs per household to ensure all pups get the attention and care that they need. California is also the only state where pet insurance is mandatory. 


A study by WalletHub, the consumer finance site, found that 17 of the top 100 most dog-friendly cities in the country are located in California. They measured dog-friendliness by examining important things like pet-care and veterinary care costs, walkability, percentage of pet-friendly apartments, and animal welfare laws.


Safewise conducted a similar study and ranked California as the sixth most dog-friendly state in the country, while Pawsafe ranks CA as the 26th most dog-friendly state. Both sites are trusted in the pet-loving community. 

Dog-friendly spots to go in California

With so much to offer as a state, there are unsurprisingly plenty of awesome dog-friendly spots across California. One of the state’s main attractions is the number of dog-friendly beaches. From San Diego to all the way up the North Coast, many beaches are open to dogs to play and run through the sand.


California is also home to plenty of parks, restaurants, and other areas and activities for you to enjoy with your pups. According to a Trust for Public Land (TPL) study, San Francisco has the fifth-highest number of dog parks per city by capita, with four dog parks per 100,000 residents. Bakersfield, Fremont, Long Beach, and Chula Vista also ranked in the top 25 for the most dog parks. 


There are fewer parks in the Los Angeles area, with only 13 parks for the four million-plus residents. Of these parks, eight of them are off-leash parks.

Any areas for improvement?

The main area of improvement for California is dog-friendly housing. California offers a fairly average percentage of pet-friendly rentals. Not to worry – you’ll still find a place for you and your pup, but you should plan to spend a little more time in your search.
