Cavachon temperament

Happy: Cavachons bring a lot of joy and cheer into homes. With their affectionate character and love for fun, the Cavachon breed is regarded as a happy breed.

Affectionate: The Cavachon breed is known for their companionship and affection towards humans. They love spending time with their owners, whether it is spending active time together or just being in the same room together.

Sociable: Cavachons enjoy spending time with humans and other animals and dog breeds. They are not aggressive to strangers, but they will usually alert their owners to visitors or strange sounds.

Playful: While not being an overly active breed, Cavachons do love to play and need regular exercise to wear off their energy. They can be trained to function well in small apartments or condos, but daily outside activity is still recommended.

Great with children: Cavachons love to play and interact with any humans, but they do exceptionally well with children. Their smaller size and cheerfulness make them excellent playmates for children. Remember to teach children how to play properly with Cavachons because of their small size!

Adaptable: These dogs can adapt to different living environments, whether it’s a city apartment or a suburban home. They are well-suited for families, singles, or seniors.

Intelligence: These dogs are generally intelligent and eager to please, which can make training relatively easy. Positive reinforcement training methods work well with Cavachons.

Remember that individual Cavachons can have variations in their temperament and appearance. Early socialization, positive reinforcement training, and consistent care are essential to raising a well-behaved and happy Cavachon.

Cavachon Breed history

The Cavachon is a relatively new breed.  While it may have been mixed before, the first recorded intentional crossbreeding of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and the Bichon Frise was in 1996.

The original intent of the crossbreed was to have a good companion dog with low allergens, and the breed has become more popular over the last several decades as a family dog. 

Breeds similar to the Cavachon include the Cavapoo and the Cava-tzu.

Cavachon Average size

The average height of adult Cavachons is 10-13″ tall at the shoulders and weigh around 10-20 pounds.

Average Cavachon lifespan

Cavachons live an average of 10-15 years.

Cavachon body features

Most Cavachon puppies will have a coat combining several colors. While it is rare for Cavachons to have a solid coat, this does happen sometimes.
Common color combinations are white or cream with darker colors such as black, dark brown, or tan.

grooming Your Cavachon Puppy

Grooming varies between Cavachon dogs due to having varying coats as a crossbreed.  Some Cavachons have a shorter coat with fine hair like the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, and others have a curlier and denser coat like the Bichon Frise.

In General, Cavachon dogs will have a coat with some waves and curls in it.  Brush the coat several times a week, and it should also be trimmed a few times a year or as needed.

Because of the oils in their skin and coat, you do not need to bathe your Cavachon regularly unless it is dirty.

Keeping Your Cavachon Puppy Healthy

The Cavachon is a generally healthy breed, but there are several things that owners should watch.

The first is the Cavachon’s weight.  Cavachons enjoy eating, and it is easy for them to overeat and become overweight.  Even gaining 1-2 extra pounds can harm a smaller dog and cause other problems, so closely monitor your Cavachon’s food intake.

If you are not sure how much feed to give your Cavachon, consult with your local vet to establish a feeding program.

Because of their floppy and hairy ears, it is also important to make sure the ears stay dry.  Wet ears can become infected if not properly dried out.

And like all dogs, Cavachons are susceptible to hip and elbow dysplasia.

Hip and elbow dysplasia occurs when the leg or hip becomes weakened, and it can result in arthritis or lameness if not addressed.

One of the best ways to prevent this is by keeping your dog from excessive running on hard surfaces.  This is especially vital when they are a puppy.

Typical Cavachon Allergens

 Although Cavachons are more allergen-friendly because of their coat, it does not mean they are completely allergy-free.

Allergens are caused by dander, which is dead skin cells.  Any animal, including humans, shed these dead cells.

The other critical factor in a Cavachon’s allergen level is regular brushing and grooming.  If the coat is unkept or the hair becomes too long, the allergen level will increase.

If allergens are a concern for a family member, remember it is always good to consult with your family physician.

  • Are Cavachons good with kids?
    You bet! Cavachons are friendly and family-oriented. They get along great with kids. However, they are small and puppies are fragile, so teach your kids how to play with them gently and carefully.
  • How old is the Cavachon breed?
    The Cavachon breed is fairly new, having only been around since the 1990s. It is a cross between the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and the Bichon Frise.
  • Are Cavachons ever a solid color?
    Cavachons sometimes have solid coats, but most of the time they are a combination of colors.
  • Do Cavachons overeat easily?
    Yes, Cavachons love to eat and may become obese quickly. Be sure to monitor your dog’s food intake and make sure he is eating quality food.
  • Are Cavachons yappy?
    Cavachons are known to be pretty quiet, and they don’t usually bark excessively.
  • What breeds are similar to Cavachons?
    Some similar breeds include: Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Bichon Frises, and Cavapoos
  • Do Cavachons develop small dog syndrome?
    Owners often allow small dogs to get away with more than large dogs because they are cute and non-threatening. This causes small dogs to get spoiled and bratty. Cavachons are susceptible to this like all other small dogs. Be sure to discipline your puppy correctly! Just because he is cute and small doesn’t mean he can get away with everything.
  • How much exercise do Cavachons need?
    Cavachons are moderately active. They are usually up for a good long hike if you go for one, but a half-hour of exercise daily should suffice.
  • Do Cavachons have long hair?
    Cavachons usually have wavy, medium long coats that are fairly dense.
  • Are Cavachons hypoallergenic?
    Yes. Cavachons don’t shed a lot and they are considered a good choice for allergy sufferers. However, if someone in your family has allergy concerns, it is always good to talk to your doctor.

Darlene MillerI highly recommend using Infinity Pups if you are looking for a reliable place on the internet to purchase your next fur baby. There are so many different breeders that advertise their animals for sale on this site so it was easy to browse by breed and compare to other breeders. The transaction went smoothly and I trusted that Infinity Pups would make sure that it was NOT a scam. If I am ever looking for another “fur baby” to adopt, I would use Infinity Pup! I ended up adopting the most incredible, intelligent and loving Cavachon. Thank you Infinity Pups for providing this kind of experience and service!
Lori RobertsonWe are thrilled with our Cavashon puppy from Benuel and Rachel Fisher. He is a happy, bright-eyed, silky-coated pup who is quickly settling into his new home. From the first moments it was obvious that he'd been lovingly raised and well socialized. A very special shout-out also to Barbara and Sarah Nitsch who arranged to deliver our boy and were very gracious when we asked to make some last-minute changes to the plan. We so appreciated their friendly, personal service and great communication. Couldn't have asked for a better experience!
Lauren McDonough-Bitzas5★ I cannot be any happier with the process of purchasing a puppy through Infinity and our little Cavavhon is so perfect! We are first-time dog owners and have two small girls ages 2 and 5 years old. We worked with the breeder Naomi Fisher who was so helpful, informative, and honest. Her pups are very well taken care of, introduced to other pets and children at a very young age. From day one, our Cavachon was so great around others, especially my children, and the transition to our home was much easier then we imagined! Naomi's litters are very well socialized. We are beyond thankful to have found her. Everything worked out so perfectly!
Julie M. Me and my family have been wanting a Cavachon puppy for YEARS. and finally, we found our breeder Naomi Fisher! She took good care of our pup when we adopted him, and can't thank her enough for being so sweet and caring! Totally recommend getting a puppy here!
Sheila K.My husband and I knew we wanted a Cavachon but were very cautious about where to go to get the puppy. I went on Facebook to ask if anyone had gotten a puppy from Rachel Fisher at Infinity Pups. Four people responded and they all had positive experiences. Another person told me to go to see the puppy and its environment and trust my instincts. That’s what we did! On Nov.30th we drove to Gordonville to meet Rachel and our puppy who is bright, happy, and healthy. We’re so glad we did!
