Temperament

Friendly & Fun
Just like the Bichon and Cavalier, the Cavachon is friendly with all walks of life; children, other dogs, the elderly, and whomever or whatever may cross their path.

They are known to bark when they hear something or someone approaching, but they are not the best guard dog because they will more than likely greet an intruder with kisses and a wagging tail.

Cavachons are relatively easy to train and respond best to positive reinforcement.

This breed does well with moderate exercise but a big back yard is not necessary; they can live in an apartment, townhome, or house.

Children and Cavachons are like peanut butter and jelly! They make the best playmates and after tiring each other out your Cavachon puppy will love just to snuggle up and take a nap.

We recommend 40 minutes of activity per day. They’ll enjoy walks on the beach or visits to the dog park, but will also enjoy interactive games in an enclosed yard. However, the Cavachon does not tolerate the cold very well.

Tracing Back The History of Cavachon Puppies

The Cavachon forms the adorable mix of the Bichon Frise and the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, with an astonishing history that is deep-rooted in the nobility and maritime endeavors.

• Origin of the Cavachon

The mixed breeds have been around for several years, making it complex to target the real origin of the Cavachon. However, designer breeds like Cavachon attained popularity during the late 1990s to the early 2000s.

• History Bichon Frise 

The Bichon Frise, as the parent of the Cavachon, is backed by a rich history. These small, fluffy dogs originated in the Mediterranean areas, where they were discovered by the Italian sailors who brought them back home. They quickly turned out to be the prized pets among the Italian nobility. Bichon Frise made their way into the United States in 1955, and by the year 1971, they entered the American Kennel Club's Miscellaneous Class, which marked its growing popularity in America.

• History of Cavalier King Charles Spaniel 

The latter half of the Cavachon's lineage, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, is named after King Charles II of Britain, who reigned during the late 1600s and was specifically fond of these gentle furry companions. Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are known for their friendly and loving nature, and they were adored by British nobility. They arrived in North America in 1952 and were recognized officially by the American Kennel Club in 1996.

• The Popularity Cavachon

Combining the appealing traits of both the Bichon Frise and the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, the Cavachon has become a beloved designer breed. Its friendly nature, compact size, and adorable appearance have made it a popular choice for families and dog lovers seeking a companion with a rich heritage and a charming personality.


Understanding the Health of Cavachon Puppies

Cavachon puppies are the adorable mix of Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Bichon Frise Breeds, known for their affectionate nature and playful demeanor. But like every other breed, they are prone to a few specific health-related issues that potential owners should know about to ensure the well-being of furry companions.

Major Health Concerns

Mitral Valve Disease: Cavachons, like their Cavalier King Charles Spaniel ancestors, may be prone to mitral valve disease, a condition affecting the heart's valves that can lead to heart failure if left untreated.

  • Heart Murmur: A heart murmur, often associated with mitral valve disease, can be detected during routine veterinary check-ups and may require monitoring or treatment.
  • Syringomyelia: This neurological condition, more common in Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, can also affect Cavachons. It causes pain and discomfort due to fluid-filled cavities in the spinal cord.

Minor Health Concerns


  • Eye Problems: Cavachons may experience various eye issues, such as cataracts or progressive retinal atrophy, which can impact their vision and require veterinary attention.
  • Thrombocytopenia: A condition characterized by low platelet counts, thrombocytopenia can lead to excessive bleeding and bruising in affected puppies.
  • Liver Shunts: Although relatively rare, liver shunts can occur in Cavachons, affecting liver function and requiring medical management.
  • Anemia: Cavachon puppies may develop anemia due to various factors, such as underlying health conditions or nutritional deficiencies, necessitating veterinary care and dietary adjustments.

Keeping Your Companion Happy and Healthy

Cavachon puppies, like their poodle relatives, boast a coat without an underlayer, making them an attractive option for people with allergies. But, it is important to dispel any notion of a completely hypoallergenic dog. Although Cavachons lack an undercoat, they shed hair to some extent, and like every dog, they shed skin cells. However, you can enjoy the cuddles with your pup without having any allergic reactions.

• Grooming Essentials

Regular brushing about once or twice a week can help with the management of shedding and preventing their hair from matting to ensure that the coat of your Cavachon stays lustrous and smooth.

• Bathing and Ear Care

To maintain skin health and prevent irritation, it's advisable to bathe your Cavachon only when necessary, using a high-quality shampoo recommended by your veterinarian. Additionally, weekly ear checks are essential to remove any dirt or debris, reducing the risk of infections.
