CAVACHONS

About

The Cavachon dog is a cuddly and friendly companion.

Cross a Bichon Frise with a Cavalier King Charles spaniel, and you'll get a Cavachon. The result is a small, attentive, athletic, and nearly hypoallergenic dog full of personality. 

The Bichon's trademark curly, puffy, cotton-ball coat is tempered by the Cavalier's soft waves, typically resulting in a medium-length, wavy Cavachon coat that retains the low-shedding, hypoallergenic qualities of the Bichon. Coloring typically takes after the Cavalier's cream-and-tan color pattern, although some Cavachons may be solid colored or all white like the Bichon. They might also have touches of black, resulting in a tri-color pattern.

Cavachon Temperament

The most commonly used adjective to describe Cavachons is "happy." Charming, fun-loving and friendly, these little dogs crave affection and attention and love to cuddle up in your lap. They adore meeting new people and make friends quickly and easily.

Cavachons are fairly laid back as far as energy goes. They are not overly adventurous, they tend to enjoy themselves wherever they are as long as they get to be with their people.

 

These pups are highly social and don't like to be left alone.

Gentle and easy-going, Cavachons tend to get along well with children and other pets, especially if socialized from a young age. Their keen intelligence and eagerness to please makes them easy to train. 

Cavachon Appearance

With Cavalier King Charles spaniel and Bichon

frise parents, Cavachons are on the small side. A full grown adult Cavachon is between 12 and 13 inches tall at the shoulder and weighs in at a compact 15 to 20 pounds.

Most Cavachons will have a combination of brown, white, and black fur with brown eyes. Their coats are typically silky, medium in length, and have a varied level of wave or curl. Cavachons shed very little but do require grooming due to their fine coat growing out.
