They must be trained with healthy habits and be fed with nutritious foods to make them healthier.



The cavachon, being energetic, but not hyperactive, needs moderate routine exercise to stay fit and burn off energy. Common dog games like a game of fetch and a morning or evening walk or some physical activity are recommended.


These dogs need the minimum regular attention from its master. They enjoy being loved by others family members, and thus it is easy for them to create a bond between themselves and the owner.


Despite being hypoallergenic, both the adult and the puppy need brushed and trimmed regularly for their very-hairy get-up. Keep them clean and dry.

Cavachons are rather light and sporadic eater who will be content with two small meals of quality dog food a day.

Health Problems

With their inner lining of ear hairs, ear infections are common, for which reason, checking the ears weekly is necessary, as also, cleaning them with canine ear cleaning solution few times every week. Other general small dog health issues include eye ulcerations (with its corneas rubbed by hair), heart murmurs, flea allergies and dry eye. Take to the vet immediately, if any of the above hazards are discovered.

Interesting Facts

  • Because the breed ‘cavachon’ is a hybrid of two separate breeds, no authoritative breed standard has been set for them.
  • They are not kennel dogs. They would rather prefer to stay around with their owners, right with them, in their homes.
  • As self-entertainers, the cavachons are better than most other dog breeds at entertaining themselves. This exclusive playfulness of these dogs eases the tasks of their owners.
  • Cavachons love playing in water.

Buying/Adopting Cavachon Puppies From Breeders

The puppy must be bought from a well-known breeder or reliable source. The most important thing to consider at this stage is whether the seller/breeder has enough information about the puppy, its background and parents and even fore-parents, from where the buyer can easily judge the health and genetic information of this hybrid puppy.

    I love the way this dog looks. I have two yorkies that are getting up in age. Lucy is 9yrs old and her half sister Bonnie is almost 11 yrs. old. I want another puppy because if something should happen to one of my dogs, I want another dog so that I won’t lose the other dog. I don’t want either of my dogs be left lone with not having someone to play with. Besides I am retired and have all the time in the world to love and train a another puppy and a puppy could be alot of fun for my two older dogs
    and me

    I have a Cavachon and she is 9 months. Her name is Emma. I love her. She is very clinging at times. She also sheds a lot. Are there certain times they shed? I didn’t notice this much shedding in the summer. It is winter now and she is really shedding. I do comb her often and bath her, but she still sheds a lot. I always have dog hair on my clothes. Any advice?

      I am interested in buying a cavachon puppy. My husband had major back surgery and it would be great to have another dog. We lost our dog 2 years ago to cancer and she was a wonderful dog. My family gave her to me when I had breast cancer and she filled our hearts so much. So now my husband had a major back surgery and he wants a dog to help him heal.
