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.

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 South Dakota?

South Dakota is a great state for traveling with your dog and has strong animal welfare laws. Though it has some room to grow, South Dakota ranks pretty well for dog-friendliness.


We evaluated two major studies to understand how each state accommodates pets. Both studies surveyed all 50 states and ranked them for pet-friendly factors like access to pet care and services, animal cruelty laws, dog parks, outdoor spaces, and more. 


The first was conducted by an animal welfare group called Pawsafe. Pawsafe ranked South Dakota as the 23rd most pet-friendly state. In this study, the state scored well for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


The second study comes from a safety review site called Safewise. They had a harsher view of South Dakota and ranked the state as 38th most pet-friendly in the country. 


But if we put these two studies together, South Dakota ranks pretty well in the middle of the pack. 

A few more facts for dog-lovers in South Dakota

BringFido lists South Dakota as a pet-friendly travel destination with over 500 verified pet-friendly hotels and motels. The site also lists Reptile Gardens and Custer State Park as popular dog-friendly attractions in the area.


Thirty-two percent of South Dakota residents own a dog. This is below the national dog ownership rate of 40% but still shows that the state loves dogs.

Animal welfare & dog shelters in South Dakota

South Dakota saved 10,836 dogs and cats during 2020. However, 1,824 animals were reported killed over this same period. 


Six out of 23 of the animal shelters within South Dakota are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is low, and the state has a below-average save rate of 77%. This is below the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state. Improving this percentage will go a long way to ranking South Dakota higher compared to other states.
