The Cavalier in many ways fits the bill as an ideal house pet. He is sweet, gentle, playful, willing to please, affectionate, and quiet. He equally enjoys sharing time on the couch or on a walk.
He neither digs nor barks excessively. He is amiable toward other dogs, pets, and strangers. Outdoors, his spaniel heritage kicks in, and he loves to explore, sniff, and chase.
Miniature poodles are clever and lively household companions, adaptable to their environments and are fairly easy to train. Overall, they are amusing, eager to please and a lot of fun to be around.
They are happiest with daily walks and lots of outdoor play. Without attention and activity, they can get bored, agitated, and restless.
