happiness is a warm puppy

Piglet + Winnie the Pooh
Affectionate, gentle, graceful. It's no wonder the Cavalier was King Charles of England's favorite dog! A Cavalier's #1 goal in life is to love you unconditionally and please you! He will happily go on a run with you, or snuggle on the couch all evening. He is happiest at your side! She is a perfect indoor companion. Your Cavalier King Charles puppy is very friendly, calm-natured, and an average shedder. Frequent brushing is recommended. Cavaliers are often cited as being rated near the top for best companion and therapy dogs because of their intelligence, low exercise requirement, and high love-o-meter! She will likely weigh between 13 to 20 pounds.
Our Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are registered purebreds with the AKC and have impressive Champion Bloodlines!
Why a Cavapoo?! Cavapoo puppies are a cross of one of the sweetest natured dogs alive & one of the most intelligent - the Poodle! A Cavapoo (or Cavoodle puppy) is also considered 'hypoallergenic' ...perfect for families with allergies, or those who wish to have a low/no shedding pup. (Officially, there's no such thing as a hypoallergenic dog - but there is no dispute that poodle mix puppies have given allergy-laden families symptom-free companions!) He is known for a "forever puppy" look he'll carry into adulthood. Cavapoos can be great candidates for therapy dogs with the combo of poodle intelligence + Cavalier loyalty. Our first-generation (F1) Cavapoos have registered purebred parents. Your Cavapoo puppy will take on the traits of his parents - just like people! It's important to remember that you are getting a puppy from two different breeds and your puppy may favor one way over the other. Either way, the intelligence and friendliness of both breeds are the perfect match!
We live on a small farm with our family and dogs in the wide open spaces of Northern Iowa! As 3rd generation family farmers, we love and live what we do - every day. We have a small purebred Angus cow herd, pigs and a few chickens, as well as row crop farming. There is never a dull moment with our 5 children from elementary to high school!
Each and every one of our puppies and their parents are played with and socialized on a daily basis. Every person in our family is involved with caring (and loving!) our dogs. It is our goal to only raise dogs that will improve the overall health and temperament of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel dog breed. We became passionate about Cavapoo puppies because our oldest child has many allergies and it was our hope to help bring the love of a Cavalier puppy to others with this same story! Combining the intelligence of a Poodle and the affectionate loyalty of a Cavalier King Charles makes the perfect companion for those with allergies or who wish for a low or nonshedding puppy!
We have met so many special people adopting our Cavapoos and often reflect how richly God has blessed us in our journey of raising little furballs of happiness!
It's our family's prayer that each of our puppies is a special part of their forever family. We believe that everything we do is a reflection of who we are as people. In our rural, small farm setting there is no better place to raise a family, or a pup! We strive for only strictly healthy, well socialized, and beautiful pups to bless others.
"We know dogs aren't our whole life, but they can make a life feel whole!"
We are privileged to have a group of beautiful Cavaliers, gorgeous mini Poodles + and 1 toy poodle! Our parent dogs are thoroughly examined, genetic (DNA) tested, and health-checked by our Veterinarian. Our Cavalier mamas are OFA certified for heart health. It's our goal to improve the health of our pets for ourselves and for you!
Beyond parent health... each of our puppies will go through the "Super Dog" program in addition to our regular Puppy Curriculum of socialization to ensure they have the best beginning possible!
