  • Pointers and Clothes

    Pointers love getting involved with your washing. Because of their heritage, they’re designed to rummage in the undergrowth to find the spoils from a hunt. As far as they’re concerned, a pile of freshly washed clothes offers just the same opportunity.

    Small, fluffy, and very playful – It’s cavapoos’ excitable nature that makes them a hazard to a household furniture. Expect to see them zooming around your living room, tracking muddy footprints across anything that gets in their path. Exercise and lots of fuss are a good cure to this troublesome problem. This breed isn’t the only kind of dog that loves playing with shoes, but they can be the trickiest to deal with. They love playing with people, so any attempt to try and remove the shoe from their mouths might just be seen as you join in on their fun.
