For a long time I was looking for a cavapoo and I was very afraid to buy online but it was the BEST decision, once we made the payment, it took a 3-week process until our puppy arrived at home. We are very happy, thank you poppysopot
Cavapoos – also known as Cavadoodles and Cavoodles – are adorable, outgoing, and snuggly. They’re a mixed dog breed of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and Poodles. They inherit their playfulness and intelligence from both of these breeds. Since they’re relatively small and very affectionate, Cavapoos are great for almost any home and for new dog owners. Cavapoos are moderately active and grow to be small or medium in size.
With their affectionate personality, Cavapoos make loving family dogs. They are also highly intelligent and moderately active. Daily walks and outside playtime can help them release their abundant energy, and make them great play companions.
As a crossbreed, their traits depend on their lineage. Cavapoos can be black, gray, red, brown, tan, beige, or white. Some pups are born with one color of fur that changes to another color as they mature. They all share a curly or wavy coat and can look like little teddy bears.
Cavapoos are relatively easy to train and love pleasing and bonding with their owners. Because they are so attached to their humans, they may develop separation anxiety when you leave them alone too long. While home alone, a Cavapoo may get anxious and turn to some naughty behaviors like excessive barking or chewing.
However, with early training and socialization your Cavapoo will develop into a wonderful companion. Thanks to their Poodle ancestors, Cavapoos have a hypoallergenic coat, making them great for people with allergies to dogs.
Cavapoos grow to be small to medium. They can range from 9 to 14 inches. Their size depends on whether they have a miniature or toy poodle parent.
Cavapoos can weigh up to 25 pounds. The breed is generally healthy and enjoys a typical lifespan of 10 to 15 years.
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.
