Cavachon Question

We have been thinking about getting a Cavachon but I don't know if we should get a male or female. Which sex has the calmer traits? And I am not a fan of peeing in the house: is there a sex that has less of a chance of this happening?

No it doesn't matter which gender it is, it depends on the dog

In my experience, boys are sweet but mark everything, especially if he's not nuetered and I now have a female Cavachon who was just a dream at potty training and is sweet, but not the clingy type. Potty training may be an individual thing too, I'm not sure. I don't think you can go wrong with either, you just have to be consistent and patient.

Males tend to "mark" their territories and WILL lift a leg and pee on inappropriate things and in inappropriate places. Females do not. I've had both sexes, and have had various breeds for almost 50 years. If the peeing really concerns you, I'd suggest getting a female cavachon.

I bought three cavachons that are siblings. I have two females and one male. The boy turned out to be the best with peeing outside and not inside the house. He goes outside even if there is thunder and lightening.

There really isn't a difference in temperament other than males can every once in a while be a bit territorial. Spay or Neuter your Cavachon and they shouldn't pee in the house.

I got my Cav Teddy when he was 11 weeks old. He trained easily...sure there were a few accidents during the training period, but by the time he was 5 tp 6 months he has not had an accident. He hasn't chewed anything and his temperment is so sweet. Grandkids play and tussle with him and he has never nipped or tried to bite. He does jump on us and friends who come over. We're working on that. He just gets so excited to see everyone
