You can't beat Cavoodles. They have the brains from the poodle father & the beautiful loving nature of the cavaliere king Charles spaniel from the mum. I now have 2 but have had 3 in the last 5 years. best dogs I have ever had. they are she'd free but females are cleaner than males. my 2 females were toilet trained way quicker than my male was.(& with no carpet damage or replacement. but all 3 love you to death.
