The Cavachon is not a pure breed. Rather, it's a “designer dog” combination of Bichon Frise and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. The result is a sweet-tempered, fuzzy ball of fluff that can make a lovely companion for the right person.
Cavachons are small dogs, which makes them a nice choice for people who live in small apartments or houses, as well as for people who travel extensively in recreational vehicles. When fully grown, these dogs tend to range in height from 12 inches to 13 inches.
Cavachons tend to have soft, silky coats with slight waves. Standard colors include:
- Apricot and white
- White with black or black and tan markings
If you're looking for an aggressive guard dog, this designer combination is definitely not the right choice for you. Rather than being aggressive, Cavachons are quite the opposite. They are gentle, accepting and tolerant (for the most part). This makes them a good pet option for families with children, as well as for households where there are other pets.
Cavachons are generally energetic, but not hyperactive. Moderate daily exercise is usually enough to help them burn off some of their excess energy. A daily walk and a game of fetch or some other activity will provide some mental stimulation as well.
Cavachons tend to be cute, friendly animals that can make excellent companion animals for the right person or family. They have loving personalities and form close bonds with their human companions. They crave companionship and attention, and they like to be active. If you want a small pet that will be an affectionate and loyal sidekick, a Cavachon might fill the bill.
