What is a Cavachon?

Royal Cavachon Puppies From The Monarchy

Cavachon puppies from The Monarchy have a Bichon Frise mother and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Sire. 

The Monarchy puppies are bred from carefully selected parents which are genetically sound dogs with good temperaments, body structure and attractiveness.  Our puppies come from purebred AKC registered parents. Hybrid vigor along with quality pedigreed parents enhance the general health of the Cavachon puppy.  

Our beautiful Cavachon puppies are raised in our home with love and affection by our family.  When you adopt one of our Cavachons, you can look forward to a relationship with us for many years to come.

Tri-color, Blenheim or Ruby Cavachons!


The Cavachon puppies take their markings and colors from the sire, Prince William – a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who is tri-color: white, large black spots and brown highlights around the face or Prince Harry - a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who is ruby: red with a splash of white on the forehead.  

As Prince William's father is Blenheim, some of his offspring will be 
blenheim
: white with apricot markings around the eyes and ears. Cavachons have:


  • Low to no-shedding, non-allergenic coat of the Bichon
  • Energy and playful nature of the Bichon
  • Sweet, friendly temperament of the Cavalier
  • Rich coat colors and variations of the Cavalier with the soft coat of the Bichon
  • People-loving personality and high intelligence
  • Stronger health than either purebred


Hybrid Vigor in Cavachons


The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel breed may carry a genetic risk factor for mitral valve disorder. Crossbreeding a Cavalier with a Bichon Frise would reduce the risk for this problem, as the Bichon Frise does not carry that same genetic risk factor.

Bichon Frises may carry a genetic risk factor for juvenile cataracts. As Cavaliers do not, the hybridization of the two breeds reduces the probability of producing puppies that get juvenile cataracts.

These are just two examples of how crossbreeding to produce the Cavachon can improve the chances for healthy dogs by reducing the probability, and in most cases eliminating, some of the genetic related risks.
