history

Cavachon puppies are the most popular puppy in the country and loved by all who meet them. Animal Planet’s Dogs 101 says it best … “What’s not to love”?

The Cavachon puppy is a hybrid or cross between a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a Bichon Frise. The Cavalier became popular during the 16th century, among the nobility of England and is named for King Charles II. The Bichon was popular in France during the Renaissance under Francis I (1515–47), but its popularity skyrocketed in the court of Henry III (1574–89).

 

description

Cavachon puppies are very adorable, playful and healthy  puppies with a great genetic history. They are very sturdy and very low maintenance. They are truly the perfect family puppy.

Cavachon puppies may have a soft and fluffy coat, similar to the Bichon or a sleek and satiny coat similar to the Cavalier.

 

They shed very little, if at all, and produce little or no dander. They are as hypoallergenic as a puppy can be, so they're great for people with allergies.
