Cavachon puppies are a hybrid breed between the Cavalier King Charles Spanieland Bichon Frise. Originating in the United States in 1996, the Cavachon quickly earned its place on the list of designer dog breeds. This lovable lap dog makes an incredible companion and tends to form an extremely close bond with its owner. Because of their strong connection they don’t like to be left alone, so if you’re someone who travels or spends a lot of hours at the office this may not be the best fit.
With its long to medium length coat and silky fur, and its hypoallergenic coat makes it a perfect pet for anyone suffering with allergies. Their coat can appear wavy or straight with a few different color variations, most commonly white with tan, apricot, red, brown and sometimes with black markings. Unlike some other designer breeds, their parents’ coats will be good guide to your puppy’s color. Because of their long fur they need trimmings once or twice a month depending on the season and the climate. It also needs brushing a few times a week to avoid knots and tangles.
Following in the pawsteps of its parents, this charming little puppy is sure to have a sweet and loving temperament. As long as your puppy is with you, they are certainly going to be happy and easy to please. They’re playful and friendly nature allows them to get along well with children and other animals. However, like many small dogs, they can become overly protective as they exhibit “small dog” syndrome. Ensuring proper socialization and training at a young age will surely help to curb this.
Family and Companionship
These little teddy bears make the perfect companion for anyone who is looking for a low maintenance lap dog. They adapt easily to whatever living conditions they are in and will not mind living in apartments or big family homes. They fit in well with a family or with someone who is single or retired. Because they love human interaction so much, they will not do well if left alone for long periods of time.
Though very playful, they are not particularly high energy dogs and only require moderate exercise. A daily short walk and some active playtime at home will suit them perfectly.
Training and Socialization
The Cavachon’s moderate to high level of intelligence and obedience helps to make training much simpler. 30 minute training sessions each day are just right for this puppy. In addition, early socialization will help your new pet to be calm in the presence of other people and pets and ease its separation anxiety when its owner leaves.

I love my baby! He was bought as Bambino and now Marley!!!!
We lost two of our dogs within three months and my husband started the search and found Premier Pups after lots of research. We ordered our little puppy and picked her up in Jan. 2018. We named her Stella and fell in love with her instantly. She was a very healthy pup and has the best disposition we could have asked for in a new dog. We were impressed with the whole process from Premier Pups too. We researched lots of breeders and selected them because they rose to the top in all areas. They provided lots of information, details and answered all questions we had during the process. We were very impressed when we actually got to the facility too. It was pristine and the staff was wonderful. We picked up Stella and her puppy kit and brought her home. She walked into our home and has loved it ever since. This has been the most positive experience I have had getting a new puppy in 33 years of dog ownership. We were so impressed that we have told everyone - and my sister ordered a pup and now Stella has a cousin Cava Chon that she has lots of play dates with each week. The pups are wonderful as is Premier Pups. I would highly recommend them to everyone. Thank you for giving us a beautiful and loving dog!!!!!
Hope arrived a few days ago and is settling in nicely. I was quite impressed with the communication with premier pups. They have called and emailed since she’s arrived. Also when she arrived Hope came with everything necessary to get a good start in her new home. Food, baby food and medicines. Hope also has a sister who is a puggle. As you can see from the picture, Hope loves her sisters big bed!
This is our sweet Lola! She is 6 months old and is the most loving, cuddly dog ever. We purchased her after having to put down our beagle/Bassett of almost 13 years and she has been a great addition to our home. Premier pups was very easy to work with and answered all questions that we had.
Baby June joined our family a little over a month ago and we couldn’t be happier. After much research about small breed dogs, I came across Premier Pups in an internet search. The website was incredibly easy to use and we found several puppies we immediately became interested in. We decided on the Cavachon breed and my daughter selected June, (we kept the name the breeder gave her.). The customer care of the Premier staff is excellent. They answered all my questions and sent 2 videos of June once she arrived on their sight. They were wonderful about flying our puppy out when it wasn’t too hot and walked us through our first week with our little one. Our family has fallen in love with our very sweet, spunky, and funny June. I would recommend Premier to anyone. I’m very grateful to have found Premier Pups.
Awesome to work with Premier Pups. Readily answered all our questions and so far (been 10 days) we could not have asked for a better dog. Healthy, full of energy and a ball of cuteness. My wife is extremely pleased with the new addition to our home. Thanks for the great service!!
We aren’t even home yet, but we have already said we would choose premier pups again in a heart beat. I loved the facility. They took their time with us, showed us an empty kennel, explained the cleaning process and it was immaculate!!! The puppies were clean and happy. Their process is like a well oiled machine and that is a HUGE deal to me. The owner was cleaning the porch with bleach and it was obvious he takes pride in his business. The puppies have made the ride successfully, but knowing we had what we needed if they were to get car sick is a relief! Great job premier pups!
We got Mia on 2/16/17 after a long journey. We had adopted a dog two weeks before, however she wasn't able to come due to two snowstorms (both on the day of flights.) The day she was supposed to arrive, the owner himself, Mike, called us to tell us that the dog had a health issue, and highly recommended to not fly her out, so she ended up not come home with us (best wishes Callista!) He told us that we could choose another dog, and that she can be sent out the next day. While crying over the news we just had just heard, my daughter found on the website Mia and immediately fell in love. This incredibly playful and well-behaved dog brings our family so much happiness and joy. They did such a good job checking up on her the first few days to make sure she was settling in and answering all of our questions. When we got Mia, I could tell right away that Premier Pups had taken phenomenal care of her. In fact, when she came she was already potty-trained and had the some of fundamentals and basics down for training. We are so grateful to Premier Pup for being so honest with us and helping us work through this difficult situation, as well as helping us find the perfect little doggy for our home. If you are thinking about to adding a family member, please consider Premier Pups. Thank you so much for giving us our bundle of joy!
My daughter has wanted a puppy forever, so we decided at Christmas to go for it. We searched and searched and landed on Premier Pups. After talking about what we were looking at with friends, I found out several of our friends also go their dogs from Premier Pups and had an excellent experience. So we went for it, and are we glad we did! My husband who is allergic to dogs was against us getting a pet, now, Rasta and him are best friends. This little guy is so sweet, we couldn't ask for a better puppy! Premier pups was easy to work with and answered all our questions. They followed up after we brought our puppy home to be sure everything was going well. I would go back to Premier pups if I were to get another dog!
We got Baxter (formerly Carson) in early June, and he has been such a joy! From picking him up from the airport to watching him grow and learn, it is evident that Premier Pups truly cares about the quality of their dogs, and about the dog health and safety. The flight process and instructions when he arrived were so easy! I was anxious at first, but the anxiety was quickly relieved. We have had so many compliments on Baxter, and not only on how adorable he is! Even when we first got him, we were complimented on how socialized he was, and how easy going of a dog he was. He was already crate trained when he arrived, and potty training (had it's ups and downs) went relatively smoothly. It is evident that Premier Pups truly chooses great quality dogs and cares for them deeply until it is time for their adoption. We have had so much fun with Baxter! He loves all dogs and people, and is very social! He has become a lake dog, and loves to swim with his lifejacket! Thank you, Premier Pups, for a great experience, and for the gift of our precious pup!
