The Cavachon came about by crossing two pedigree dogs namely the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel with the Bichon Frise. These little dogs were first developed in the States, but quickly became extremely popular in other areas of the world, including here in the UK thanks to their adorable looks and charming natures. Cavachons are not recognised as a breed in their own right by The Kennel Club or some other international clubs. However, breed clubs have now been established in many countries of the world with an end goal being to ensure breeders adhere to good practice guidelines so these delightful dogs are responsibly bred, especially as for the moment there are no set breed standards.

The breed was first developed in the States with the first Cavachon appearing on the scene in 1996 when two pure breeds were crossed, namely the Bichon Frise and the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. The result was a delightful and charming looking little dog that inherited many of their parent breeds' physical traits. For the moment, they are classed as "designer dogs" and as such Cavachons are not recognised as a breed by The Kennel Club here in the UK.

As previously mentioned, Cavachons are new to the dog world, but their popularity continues to grow thanks not only to their adorable looks and puff-ball coats, but also because they are considered as being "low shedders" which means anyone suffering from allergies may not be quite as affected when they come into contact or live with a Cavachon, although it tends to be the dander a dog sheds that is usually triggers allergies in people. With this said, the Cavachon has become a very popular choice both as a companion dog and as a family pet both here in the UK and elsewhere in the world.
