Cavachon Characteristics

The Cavachon is an adorably fuzzy hybrid – a cross between a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a Bichon Frise. As both of their parent breeds, they’re affectionate, smart, and even spunky. They love to play and spend time with their families. Since they’re quite small, they adapt well to any kind of indoor living, including apartments.

  • Size Small
  • Trainability Willful

A breed of many names, the Cavachon also goes by the Cavalier-Bichon or Bichon-King Charles. Standing about 12-13 inches at the shoulder and weighing anywhere between 15-35 pounds, the Cavachon is a perfect lap-sized companion. These dogs are very mild-mannered and can acclimate to homes with children or pets with ease.  
Available in an assortment of coats, the Cavachon can be found in apricot, black, white, and more. Their coats tend to grow to a medium length and are usually good for people who suffer from allergies. They're also relatively easy to groom, and only require a brushing every 7-10 days. 
Cavachons want nothing more than to please their owners, and will likely follow you from room to room. They only require a moderate amount of exercise and are often more focused on the attention they receive from their owner than the amount of time they get to spend at the dog park.
 
They adapt to almost any home that will love them and will give lots of love and affection in return.
 

How dog-friendly is Iowa?

Iowa is a dog-friendly travel destination and has a lot of dog-lovers. But a few issues cause the state to rank rather poorly for dog-friendliness, particularly its lax animal welfare laws. 


We investigated two big studies ranking all 50 states by important pet-friendliness factors. The studies looked at things like pet-friendly accommodations, pet care and services, the number of dog parks or outdoor space, and animal welfare laws. 


The first study, by animal safety group Pawsafe, ranked Iowa as the 41st most pet-friendly state. The second study, by consumer safety group Safewise, ranked it as the 43rd most pet-friendly state in the country. The state scored poorly for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


Combining these two studies together shows Iowa towards the bottom of the list of pet-friendly states.
