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.

We just picked up Wrigley on Wednesday, March 15, 2017 and she is already settling in very well. She made the five-hour ride home like a trooper, eats every 2-3 hours and already tells us when she needs to go outside to potty. The first night home was a little rough but she now sleeps through the night in her crate or on her bed next to ours, just getting up once or twice to go potty. We have been so delighted with the staff at Premier Pups checking up on her daily and being so helpful when we picked her up this week. We highly recommend Premier Pups if you are considering a new puppy soon; hope you have as happy an ending as we did with Wrigley Belle (previously known as April).
My wife and I chose our little cava chon in December 2018. he is now around 12 weeks old and is such a loving, healthy, happy and playful boy. His ability to learn is very good, his potty training has gone very well and he loves the snow as you can see in this photo. We did a lot of research before deciding on Premier Pups. The place is very professional, clean and wonderfully ran. The experience could not have been better. I would highly recommend them! 5-Stars!!!!!
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 are so happy to have this little guy! After tons of research and after reading many reviews for a reputable breeder, we were delighted to discover Premier Pups. They made the process so easy. They were full of information and had great communication. Any questions we had were answered. The process was so simple and exactly as premier pups said it would be. Highly recommend! Would definitely purchase from premier pups again. We could not be happier with our Cava chin, Chuck. An awesome addition to our family. Thank you premier pups!!
What a pleasure it is to work with Premier Pups! From choosing your pup to delivery, and all the support beyond, they are exceptional. Whether you’ve been a dog owner all your life or are new to the experience, Premier Pups takes the stress and worry out of bringing your new pup into your fold. I live in Florida and on the day of Griffins flight it was rather warm here. Laws prevent pups from being delivered in excessive temperatures so his flight was changed several times on his arrival date. Premier was amazing in keeping us informed and worry free. They were available by phone well into the night, connecting with us by phone at 1 a.m. after his long day of travel. Our pup arrived happy and healthy, and we knew we had a concerned and caring partner in Premier. Rest assured that Premier Pups has their puppies best interest at heart and know exactly what they’re doing. Thanks so much Lacey and all the staff at Premier!
Scally arrived on 10/26. A bit overwhelming as a first time dog owner family.... but the access to questions and concerns is very comforting as we want Scally to be as happy and healthy as possible. We love him soo much already! Best decision!
I wanted to buy my Mom a Companion Puppy for her retirement Party... To say that I was Extremely Skeptical about Purchasing a Puppy Online would be an understatement!!! But I came across PremierPups.com, Called and asked a Lot of Questions (I'm surprised they didn't get tired of Me) I read all of the Reviews, Google Search, Yahoo Search, and did a Better Business review of them before I gave in and Purchased Jackson (JAX) from them. So for anyone else reading this that is as Skeptical as I was... Put your Trust in Premier Pups!!! They delivered Mom my an Awesome, Lovable, Healthy Cava-Chon Pup. They called several times after delivery to make sure the Puppy was doing fine, and answered all of my Moms Questions... Now I am 'Son of The Year'... Awesome Job Premier Pups, You are truly a Great Company!!
I saw this sweet little face and fell in love, she was born on the day my mom passed away, such a beautiful little thing born on the worst day of my life. I finally got her and she is just perfect. It took her all of five minutes to warm up to me and except for naps she so playful! Thank you!
We love our cavachon. Ruttger is now 8 months old. He is a wonderful family dog. Super affectionate, a great lap dog, but also loves 3 mile runs and play! He is everything the breed promised to be.
Our Cava Chon pup purchased from Premier pup has brought such happiness and joy to our home. Having never purchased a pup on line I was apprehensive but the experience has proved to be worry free. Our little Abby is a happy, healthy pup. The staff has been wonderful and supportive. I would not hesitate to recommend Premier pup to anyone looking for a family pet.
