This dog breed was born by cross-breeding two pure breed dogs. They are descended from the Bichon Frise and the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Cavachons are a relatively new dog breed and they are growing in popularity and reputation because they are really low shredders.
This means anyone who is allergic may just accommodate the Cavachon. They have been classified as designer dogs and as a result, have not been recognized by the British Kennel Club.
The Cavachon is kind, affectionate and very gentle. They just love to be in the midst of children and other dogs. They have been named lap dogs because they love to cuddle and will not miss an opportunity to do so.
They create a bond with the family members and want to be a part of everything going on. They really do not like being left alone because they thrive on human interactions. They may develop separation anxiety if they are left alone.
Cavachons are really small dogs and can live virtually anywhere. They could do apartment living or live in a house with a yard comfortably. They adore children and wouldn’t mind being adopted into such families.
They are generally friendly dogs and get along with other dogs if they are socialized at an early age. Since they are small, all interactions with children should be supervised so they do not hurt the dog. They are not so tolerant of the winter weather.
The Cavachon needs enough daily exercise as they are very energetic dogs. They need to be allowed to run up and down the yard or taken for long walks just so they can explore and stretch their tiny legs.
They could develop bad habits when they’re not exercised right and you really don’t want that. So you should give them about 30 minutes a day of exercise and mental stimulation since they are very intelligent dogs.
The Cavachon is not known to be a heavy shredder so you are in luck. You would need to brush his coat regularly and give him baths when it is necessary. Always keep an appointment with a professional groomer every 4 to 8 weeks so they can trim his coat and help you keep him looking good.
They are susceptible to tearing so make sure you clean his eyes with a damp cloth every now and again. You should get your dog used to being touched and examined so they don’t freak out. Clean his ears and check for signs of infection while at it.
