... About Us ...

Pleasant Meadows Cavaliers, Miniature Poodles, Cavapoos, Southern Alberta Canada

On our small farm we strive to raise and sell quality animals for the purpose of enriching our lives as well as yours!  Our animals health and happiness is of the utmost importance to us and we expect our purchasers to feel the same way!  Each of our animals, both big and small, domestic and livestock alike, are treated with dignity and respect and are loved and valued members our family!  Out of our love for animals has grown our desire to share the joy and goodness that animals can bring to everyone's life! 

 We have lived on a farm all of our lives and enjoy all of God's wonderful creatures!   We moved to our current location in July of 2012 where we have really been able to specialize in raising dogs in our new expanded facility.  See our Puppy Room Tour by clicking on the link!  We also raise goats for milk, and keep horses for pleasure riding, and they also help us herd our goats from one field to another.

Dog Breeding:  Presently we raise Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Miniature Poodles, and the Cavapoo hybrid.  We wanted to raise a breed of dog which is suitable for all family types, and all ages.  We researched extensively to find a breed that would be suitable and fell in love with the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel for it's wonderful temperament, spunky nature, and willingness to please.  However, since the Cavalier is not hypoallergenic it unfortunately can't appeal to allergy sufferers -- so we researched the Cavapoo hybrid and have found it to bring the best of both breed qualities to the forefront when crossing with the Poodle, allowing the Cavapoo
 to soar into everybody's hearts with it's undeniable charm!  The
Cavapoo is a recognized hybrid cross between the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Toy or Miniature Poodle.  Please see our Cavapoos 101 page for Cavapoo genetics, and 
for puppy development and behaviour (related to all breeds).  Poodles are a non-shedding breed and hypoallergenic for people with allergies. We chose to breed 
and mix the Poodle with the Cavalier to create the Cavapoo for it's remarkable intelligence, laid back personality (Poodles are NOT hyper despite what you may have heard!), and their playful nature.  All 3 breeds are excellent family dogs, and we love being able to share them with you depending on your preference or needs (ie. allergies, or just an incredible friend)! You can also learn more about 
the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Miniature Poodle, and the Cavapoo on 
our Breed HISTORY page.

Our females are only bred every other cycle allowing for a 10-12 month span between litters! This ensures that they are kept in the best of health by giving their bodies a rest from puppy rearing, and we do not breed them past the age of six.  Our males are available for stud to outside females, but we are very selective when it comes 
to breeding them and questions will be asked before an agreement is made.

" A righteous man regards the life of his animal ..."

~ Proverbs 12:10 ~

 

We believe that God created the heavens and 
the earth and everything in them -- as told in Genesis Chapter 1.  Animals are valued by God Himself and He left the responsibility to man, to rule over all of His creation.  Let us be good stewards of that trust, and be kind to all His creatures great and small.
