My fiancé and I had the BESTTT experience with PuppySpot! We are first time puppy owners - we have never bought or taken care of a puppy on our own before although we grew up with dogs and the way the breeder has raised our Cavapoo, Norah is incredible. She was already socialized and eager to learn. We completely potty trained our pup in two weeks! She loves people and especially kids! She is an amazing puppy and becoming a great and obedient doggy :) The service from the puppy managers a...
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 Tennessee?
The state has some strong pros and strong cons when it comes to pet safety and dog-friendliness. In fact, different studies come to very different conclusions about Tennessee. Some of that is related to the fact that Tennessee lags behind other states when it comes to its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.
One leading study was conducted by the animal advocacy group Pawsafe. Their study ranks all 50 states according to several key criteria, including animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations, pet services, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails.
Pawsafe ranked Tennessee fairly low – as the 36th most pet-friendly state.
However, another reputable study, conducted by the safety review site Safewise ranked Tennessee as the 9th most pet-friendly state. This is in part because of a few cities that have great standards for dog living.
Combining these two studies together puts Tennessee somewhere in the middle of the pack of pet-friendly states.
