Cavachon is the result of crossing two dog breeds: the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and the Bichon Frise. The resulting dog breeds are usually called “designer” breeds. Cavachons make excellent companions and pets, especially for people with allergies.
The Cavachon is an athletic, small to medium sized dog with large expressive eyes. She is alert, hardy, cheerful and active.
Cavachon is very affectionate, loving, and gentle. He is very family oriented and begins to yearn if ignored or left alone for long periods of time. These dogs communicate well with children over 8 years old, or even with small children if they grew up with them. They also get along well with dogs, cats and other pets. Cavachon is not aggressive, but is ready at any time to inform you about any unusual sounds or the arrival of visitors.
Wool and care
Cavachon’s coat is silky to the touch and can be either slightly wavy or fall off in loose curls. Depending on this, the Cavachon may require either regular cleaning or professional trimming. It is important to check and clean your dog’s ears regularly, as well as maintain dental hygiene, as Cavachons are prone to tooth loss. Other common conditions for this breed are ear infections, skin problems, sensitivity to flea bites, heart disease and hip dysplasia.
It is recommended to conduct an early socialization course with this dog, as well as obedience training. Cavachon does not always quickly get used to keeping the house clean, so it is recommended to keep it in a special box for some time. Training must be conducted with firmness, fairness, patience and consistency.
In a closed room, Cavachon behaves with moderate activity, and therefore is well suited for keeping in an apartment. Cavachon is very fond of taking part in all family activities, enjoys walking on a leash, but if you let the dog run freely in a safe or well-fenced place, he will be especially grateful to you.
