This is not a dog meant to be left to its devices for a long stretches of time. A mixed breed of two toy companion dog breeds, the cavachons for sale are representatives of an increasingly popular designer dog breed in the United States. This cross of the Bichon Frise and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel has been bred to reproduce certain desired traits. The coveted attributes are the low shedding trait of the Bichon Frise and the good natured temperament of both these spaniel species.

This designer breed was introduced in 1996 for the very first time in the Unites States. It is perfect for apartments and households with young children and other animals. It is not appropriate guard dog material. As a hybrid, there is no breed standard. However, a basic description of expected physical and temperamental features has been put together by the Cavachon Club of America. Future owners should be prepared for regular grooming.

Cavachon coat colors normally adhere to inherited shades from their Cavalier ancestral line. Cavaliers have four basic shade types. These are the tricolor, which is a combination of black, tan and white, the white and chestnut Blenheim blend, a Ruby color and a black and tan shaded variation. The texture of the hair is silky with some wave in it. The Bichon Frise a water spaniel species, has a mostly white double coat. This shade is not common in most of its hybrid offspring.

Possessing the combined hair texture traits of both ancestral lines, the hybrid offspring require regular grooming to maintain their coats in tip top condition.

Adults will vary from ten to fifteen inches in their height. They will weigh between ten and twenty five lbs.
