As with other designer breeds, Cavachons come in various sizes and coat textures since no standard has been set yet. In fact, puppies of the same litter can look different in appearance. Since the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Bichon Frise are small in size, Cavachons won’t grow to be large dogs. They weigh between 31 and 33 centimetres and weigh 10 to 20 pounds. The cross between these two charming breeds has created a cutedog with expressive eyes. It is a well-proportioned dog with a compact body, and not particularly muscular but neither is it too slender.
With the parent breeds having fluffy and thick coats, Cavachons are expected to have this type of coat. However, the length, texture and colour vary.Some dogs can have medium to long hair. A few can have straight hair and others can have wavy or somewhat curly coats.Likewise, they can come in white with black, apricot or tan markings, red, brown, or tricolour.
When it comes to grooming, the Cavachon is rather high maintenance like its parent breeds. While it sheds minimally, it still needs to be brushed frequently. It also needs to be taken to the groomers to get trimmed between 4 and 8 weeks.Its eye stains must also be cleaned regularly with a damp cloth. Also pay attention to its dental health because small dogs are prone to tooth problems. Aside from weekly tooth brushing, provide it with dental chews and toys as they help in removing tartar. Make sure to trim its nails as overgrown nails may inflict pain especially during play time. Keep its ears clean and dry, and inspect for fleas and spots on the skin.
