Sweet newborn puppies
Newly added families to our Puppy Wait List can expect a one year wait for a puppy.
Those on our Wait List have the first opportunity to reserve puppies.
When our puppies go home, they will be microchipped, up to date on vaccinations including a nose-to-tail vet exam, handmade receiving blanket -made by our children- with the scent of mom and siblings, a copy of health guarantee, and a bag of their puppy food.

happiness is a warm puppy
Charles M. Schulz
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! She will happily go on a run with you, or snuggle on the couch all evening. She 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 sited as being rated near the top for best companion and therapy dogs because of her intelligence, low exercise requirement and high love-o-meter! She will likely weigh between 13 to 18 pounds. Quick to potty train and obedience train... but like all babies, consistency and love are so important!
Our Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are registered purebreds with the AKC or APR 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 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 also adorable! He is known for a "forever puppy" look he'll carry into adulthood. Cavapoos are often sited as a great candidate for therapy dogs because of their intelligence and the Cavalier tendancy to love and gentleness. We offer first generation (F1) Cavapoos from registered purebred parents: Poodle + Cavalier. Your Cavapoo puppy will take on the traits of his parents - just like people! If he follows his Cavalier parent, he may have a wavy, less curly, coat and be less energetic. If he follows his Poodle parent, he may need more exercise but would likely shed very little if any. Either way, the intelligence and friendliness of both breeds is 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 conventional and organic row crop farming. There is never a dull moment with our 5 children from toddler to teen!
Each and every one of our puppies and their parents are played with and socialized by our family 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 wish for a low or non shedding puppy!
The health and wellness of our dogs come first - so you can rest assured that your puppy has come from a family where love and health go hand in hand.
Please include a bit about yourself along with any questions for me!
I'm always happy to talk to you, as well! (515) 360-3217 - Sara
A little note on COVID-19 Quarantine:
This is a great time to train and welcome a puppy!! All of our puppies will be chosen by those on our Puppy Wait List. We are still estimating a one year wait for a Cavapoo puppy... but I think you'll agree - they're worth the wait ;)
We take our guarantee very seriously. It is so important to us that each puppy is healthy and becomes a wonderful new family member. This is why we offer a 2-Year replacement guarantee against major debilitating genetic defects. Just like in humans, things can and do happen, so we're here to back our pups up. We feel confident in the health and wellness of our dogs - and this is our way of passing that assurance on to you! To read our full replacement guarantee, please click below.
