Hi-

Just wondering if you have heard of anyone using an invisible fence with a Cavachon and how it worked.

-C


Hi C,

As a matter of fact, I have! We have an invisible fence which we installed two summers ago and it is wonderful! Kasey was trained on it in no time. He did get zapped once during the training and never went near the boundaries again, even when our next door neighbors (who he adores and they adore him) are outside. The only unfortunate part is that it has been out of commission twice. The first time our lawn was aerated and they hit it. We had that repaired. Then, this fall we had to have our basement re-waterproofed and they also somehow managed to break the fence even though I put the flags back up and told them exactly where the line was. I have not had it fixed again yet, but it is winter here. After it was down the last time, Kasey was right back in the swing as soon as I put the transmitter collar on him.

    My cavachon Cosmo has recently started marking in the house, everything I have read says when I see him do it raise my voice so he stops and scold him, well he is a sneak and behaves when I have him in sight, and don’t tell me to confine him in the room am in as my house is a open floor plan and there is no way to fence off those rooms which is where we spend most of our day. He just started doing this and I use a product made to keep him from revisiting those spots as soon as I find them. I crate him when I am gone and for now he s crated when I am home. He has marked my couch, end table, dining room table he is a mess. I am afraid I will have to get rid of him if I can’t stop this marking he is suddenly decided to do. Nothing in my house has changed since the day I brought him home and he has Ben here 14 months, and yes he has been neutered since he was five months old. HELP!

    I thought I read one time that marking like that can be something health related. But I really can’t remember where I read it. Have you talked with your vet?

    Cavachons are a mix of Cavlier King Chares and a Bichon Frise.
    What would Cavachon and Pug look like?

    Just wondering,

    Hi, i have a 5month old cavachon, who is adorable, the strange thing about her is, she shall go pee pee and poo in our back garden,but when we take her out for a walk, she doesn’t do anything, and as soon as we get back home, she runs to the back door to get out and do her toilet, have you experienced th
    is with your pup? she does still have the odd accident indoors, which i think is quite common with this breed,the other thing i would like to ask is, do you ever let your dog of the leash to run around the park etc, i think she is so small, i am afraid she shall run off, and not come back when i call her, or some other dog shall attack her, do you think i am being to over protective?
    Dawn.

    I sounds like she just prefers the back garden for some reason! I wish Kasey had a more isolated area – it would make clean up so much easier 😉 Also, at 5 months, accidents will still happen. I did not consider Kasey completely housebroken til he was just over a year old (we did move to a new house when he was about 6 months old so we may have been delayed a little.)

    As far as letting your dog off leash – I would be leery and I don’t think you are being over-protective at all. I actually worry about it more now than ever which is why I put in the electric fence. The older Kasey got, the more independent he seemed to get and would stop coming right back to me, even for a treat. I do not want to be one of those owners out looking for their dog. Kasey is either on a leash or has his “fence” collar on.

    The size can vary depending on quite a few factors. The breeder will try to predict the size for you, but they are not always correct. We were told Kasey would be about 15 pounds and he is 19 pounds.
    I would estimate the average weight to be from 15 to 20 pounds.

    My name is Cozmo and my litter mate Teddy is 17lbs and counting, but I only weigh 10.6 lbs. we are 10 months old and very different from one another. I am a nibbler, and he goobles up any food in sight, so maybe you can judge by how you dog eats his food. My Vet says I am very healthy, whereas Teddy is frequently sick not sure why. I also have small features, head, legs and feet. We come in many sizes, up to over 20 lbs and then some small like me.
