Overview
The Cavachon is created by crossing two breeds: Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Bichon Frise. They are typically referred to as "designer dogs". They have become popular companions, especially to allergy sufferers.
Character
Small to medium in sie, the Cavachon possesses large expressive eyes and a sporty appearance. They are alert, sturdy, animated, and lively.
Temperament
The Cavachon is affectionate, loving, and gentle. They are very family oriented and do not do well if ignored or left alone for extended periods of time. They do best with older, considerate children or with children they have been with from puppyhood. Cavachon's will generally get along with dogs, cats, and other household pets. The Cavachon is non-aggressive but will alert their family to visitors and out of the ordinary sounds.
Care
Depending on coat type, the Cavachon requires regular brushing or professional clipping. It is important to regularly check and clean the ears. Dental hygiene is important to prevent early tooth loss. Cavachon's may be prone to such health issues as ear infections, skin problems, sensitivity to flea bites, heart problems, and hip dysplasia.
Coat
The coat of the Cavachon may be silky and slightly wavy or loosely curled.
Training
Early socialization and obedience are recommended. The Cavachon may be difficult to housetrain. The crate method is recommended. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, patience, and consistency.
Activity
The Cavachon is relatively active indoors. They are well suited for apartment living. They enjoy family activities, securely leashed walks, and off-lead play time in a securely fenced yard.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Cavachon puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Mating Cavachon Is it ok to mate a Cavachon female with a Cavalier male?

1 Comment

Mixing two breeds of dogs together is a risk to the dam and to the puppies. Unless you are a reputable breeder or are under the study of one, you shouldn't be breeding. Breeding dogs is very dangerous for the dam, sire and the puppies. Unless your dog is of impeccable breeding, has passed all temperament and health checks and has titles in confirmation and/or has shown he/she is capable of doing what the breed was made for, the dog should be spayed/neutered.

Do cavachon puppies smell or have little odor? How long can you leave cavachons for on their own?

2 Comments

Anonymous

The Cavachon is a cross between the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and the Bichon Frise. The C.K.C.S, nor the Bichon Frise are known for odor, however, the better quality food the dog is eating, and more the dog is groomed, the less odor your dog will have. Going to a groomer, or using the correct shampoo will also diminish the 'doggy smell' that some people notice on certain dogs. An adult dog, whom has been exercised and let out to use the bathroom before the other leaves should be able to hold it for 5 - 8 hours. However, do not expect a puppy to be able to hold it for more then 2 hours. Please note that the longer you make your dog wait to use the bathroom, the higher percentage you have of your dog either having an accident and/or getting an infection from not being able to relieve itself.

So having a plan, such as having a friend, family member, or dog sitter to come in the middle of the day to allow the dog to relieve itself if you can not come back home for lunch is best. But, making sure your dog is on a feeding schedule and not free fed, making sure your dog is exercised before you leave and that he/she has fresh water and something to do (ie: a bone or toy to chew on/play with) while you are gone, your dog shouldn't have any issues.

If the sire and dam are both Cavachon, then the puppies will be Cavachon. If the sire and dam are healthy, then it's a good bet that the puppies will be healthy as well.

The ideal Cavachon is 50% Cavalier and 50% Bichon. Hybrid puppies are considered FIRST generation only if both parents are purebred dogs. In the case of the Cavachon, the parents would be a purebred Cavalier and a purebred Bichon. That ensures the 50/50 rule and all of the great things that go along with being owned by a Cavachon. Puppies are considered SECOND generation if both parents are hybrids which is what you are asking about. The question then becomes what is the lineage of the parents. If you would like to more about First, Second and even Third generation hybrid puppies there is a much more in-depth article on our blog. Hope this helps. Kelly & Jack

Yes, the puppies should be healthy if both the parents are. But, the pups may look more like a Bichon or more like a Cavalier King Charles. They also probably will not be hypoallergenic because they are second generation pups. -vet2b

Cavachons are a cross between a Bichon Frise and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. They are considered a mix breed, designer dog, or hybrid. They are a 'breed' that was first started at Century Farm Puppies back in 1996.

why are 93% of cavachons puppies dying to early

2 Comments

Anonymous

I think 93% of the puppies dying too early is NOT accurate. But the reason of some dying too early is because Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are 20x more likely to get heart disease than other breeds. You can prevent you Cavachon from having heart disease if you see if the Cavalier parent had any heart problems.
7/5/2013 1:49:25 PM

Where are you getting the 93% figure from? Crossing the Cavalier King Charles with the Bichon helps to eliminate most of the major genetic health concerns. If the puppies are dying early, it's possibly due to improper breeding of the parents.

My cavachon is four years old. When we visit our friends or family he pees on the floor or furniture. He does his bowel movements. Why is he doing this? He does not do it on our home floors.

Sometimes dogs will mark their territory by urinating. If they have a dog, your Cavachon could be trying to become dominant over their dog. Another reason is that your dog could be afraid of your friends/family because they could scare or irritate him in a way that scares him. Some dogs urinate when they are afraid by someone teasing them (such as 'flappping' the mail-slot loudly).

As with any breed, the minimum age for a female is two years old so that the proper genetic testing can be performed prior to breeding. It is not recommended to breed after the age of five.

Awwww, I am so sorry to hear about your Cavachon's health issue. Does your breeder offer any sort of health guarantee? The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is known for heart defects and should be tested before breeding. A good breeder will have had genetic testing done before starting a breeding program. Good luck.

How old is mom and dad? (Mom should not be younger than 2 yrs old, or older than 5.) Are parents on premises? If not....run. Have the parents been genetically tested prior to breeding? If not....run. Do you offer a health guarantee? Can I contact your vet for a reference? Can I receive proof of vaccinations? (You at least want stickers from the bottles of vaccinations or receipts of purchase.) How long have you been breeding?

Is the transition easier for a puppy when they have something that smells like there littermates? We're going to visit our cavachon puppy but shes only 4 weeks old so she cant come home yet. Should I bring an old t-shirt that the puppies can sleep on so when she comes home it will be easier on her?

That's a good idea. We gave our's a teddy which was a bit bigger than she was so she could snuggle up to it. She settled really easy. Even almost two years later she likes a toy or she sometimes takes a slipper into her bed.
