Perhaps instead of asking "How much is that doggie in the window?", buyers should be asking pet shop owners if that doggie is a product of a puppy mill.
When companionship and care are non-existent and profit is the only goal, you can consider any breeder to be a puppy mill.
A puppy mill is a term given to a dog breeding business that operates solely for financial gain and without any regard to the animals' health or well-being.
One of the challenges of shutting down a puppy mill is that the laws are not clearly defined.
Research is important when looking for a new puppy or adult dog to bring into your home, especially in the case of Cavachons since they are also highly prized commodities on the puppy mill market.
