The Cavachon is a mix of the Bichon Frise and Cavalier King Charles so they have characteristics of both breeds. According to PetCareRx, the Cavachon is great for families due to their playful and social personality. They crave attention and may become agitated if isolated for long periods of time. They are peaceful and can live with other animals, although it may be better if they are introduced as puppies. They are also very flexible and can adapt to living in either a house or apartment because of their limited exercise needs.

Due to their small size, a Cavachon does not require much feeding. They can generally be satisfied with two light meals per day.

Health-wise, Cavachons are known to be susceptible to heart mitral valve disease, hip dysplasia and patellar luxation. Their typical lifespan is around 8 to 12 years.
