cavachon-dog-breed-info

While every dog is unique, dogs of the same breed often share many characteristics.  It is obvious that dogs of the same breed have many physical characteristics in common, but they will often share some personality characteristics as well.  The following Cavachon breed info will give you some important information about the various characteristics of this particular breed.

For starters, the Cavachon breed is a mix between a Bichon Frise and a Cavalier King Charles.  Obviously, the Cavachon will share characteristics that are common in both of these breeds.

Size: The Cavachon is a small dog, typically weighing somewhere between 12 and 18 pounds.  However, it is more common for a Cavachon to weigh somewhere on the higher end of that range, typically 15 to 18 pounds.

Fur: A Cavachon’s coat is very fluffy, thick, and often rather curly.  Regular grooming is a must for the Cavachon due to the long length that their fur can reach, which can become as long as 3 to 5 inches.  However, despite the Cavachon having longer and thicker hair than other dog breeds, they shed very little.  The coloration of their fur can vary, but is most commonly various shades of white or brown.  Spotting is very common in this dog breed.

Personality: The Cavachon is an active breed, often wanting to exercise and play.  However, they are better than most breeds at entertaining themselves, which can ease some of the burden off of a less than active owner.  The Cavachon is a very social dog breed as well, which would prefer to be in the company of other dogs or people rather than finding a spot where they can be alone.  The Cavachon displays a great mix of activity and contentment, always looking to find a nice soft lap to rest in after some play-time!

Eating Habits: The Cavachon is a rather light and sporadic eater.  They will be content with two small meals of quality dog food a day.

Training: The Cavachon is a very smart breed, able to quickly pick up on many tricks and follow obedience training very well.

    We bought a 12 week old cavachon and have since had some concerns about the breeder (signs that he may have been bred at a puppy farm and then sold from a family home). His mum was a cavachon (who we saw) and was told his dad was a bichon. Anyway he is lovely and now part of the family. He has got thick fur on his legs and chest and facially looks like a cavachon but he has fine, rough hair on his back. Is this normal, as im now wondering about his parentage.

    Hi. I have a one year old cavachon, he sounds similar to yours at 12 weeks old. This is just his puppy fur on his back. Once he had been groomed the first time his fur grew back very thick.
