Have you considered adopting an older dog? 

We re-home our dogs, and we’re always looking for loving homes for our breeding girls and boys. Our main dogs that we rehome are female Cavaliers which we find tend to adapt to their new homes easily.


A re-homed dog is not for everyone, however they often suit people who have lost an older dog and are missing the companionship, but don’t wish to have a young puppy.


In order to adopt an older dog you need to be aware that it will take time for both you and your new dog to bond.   We generally find it takes around 4 – 6 weeks for a dog to start to really settle in and warm to it’s new home, so you’re patience and understanding is very important to help it settle.  



We find that walking is often the key to helping you new dog settle in, so if adopting an older dog you need to have the time for twice a day walks.  


People often make the mistake of trying to spoil their new companion which is understandable, (we also love dogs), however it is not beneficial to the dog.   Dog’s appreciate and need kindness, however they also need to know that their new owner will be their pack leader, so they don’t get confused about where their place is within their new family.  


Please don’t expect it to be an instant member of the home, it will need time to adjust and the best way to do this is, is by allowing it space to do so.   Not in area, but in your understanding.   Even if your last dog slept on your bed, don’t encourage your new dog to do so straight away, this will only confuse them in regards to their pack order.  


It will need to learn what is expected of them, and how they are to behave in their new home.    If you let them get away with unacceptable behaviour when you first bring them home, they won’t understand why later on it’s not okay for them to act in a certain manner.


As our dogs are raised in a country environment, so they are often not use to the hustle and bustle of city life.   In order to prepare them for the changes ahead, they have daily car travel, we take them for walks in our local town so they can experience bicycles, runners and traffic we also have them spend time with cats, as many of their new homes will have a cat or two.


If a dogs life is broken down into blocks of time, the “settling in time” is only a very small block of time in its lifetime.   If re-homing is done with care and consideration you will have a loving companion for many years to come…….
Adopted dogs are desexed, vaccinated and microchipped.
Sorry we never have adult Cavoodles to be rehomed, as only breed 1st generation (Cavalier x Poodle), so as a consequence we don't keep adult Cavoodles.
