The Cavachon is a friendly, personable and loyal medium to smaller sized hybrid dog that is a cross between a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a Bichon Frise. Most Cavachons will be less than 30 pounds at maturity
however they are not a delicate or indoor dog, rather they are an excellent family pet. Their bodies are longer than they are tall with well formed legs and a moderately deep and wide chest.
The coat of the Cavachon is typically solid white or white and another color such apricot, black, sable, red or even a yellow color. Tri-colors are also possible but not common. The coat is longer and silky, wavy to straight, and is low shedding and like these dog types may be hypoallergenic for those with mild to moderate dog allergies. The head is round in shape with long ears that frame the face and alert, bright and intelligent dark eyes. The muzzle is moderately long and tapered giving the head a very balanced appearance.
What You Need To Know About Owning A Cavachon
Owning hybrid breeds is always a bit of a unknown factor since the puppies may favor either of the parents. With the Cavachon both breeds have been developed as companion dogs so you are much more likely to get a puppy with a gentle, friendly and outgoing temperament. They are easy to train and will respond very well to positive training methods.
The Cavachon is a canine hybrid with a high maintenance coat, although with routine care the grooming program should only take a few minutes every day. Clipping the coat every six to eight weeks in a puppy clip will cut down on daily grooming requirements. Eyes and ears may be problematic in the breed so be sure to carefully clean and monitor both eyes and ears to prevent infections.
