Cavachons, do contact me ASAP to avoid disappointment, as they often go very quickly! If you have questions about boy vs girl (in this breed, either is a great choice!) We have both Toy & Standard size Cavachons, both are sporty and athletic little characters with a strong leaning toward couch potato,,, the perfect combination!
Almost A MILLION Visitors! Amazing!!!
I receive letters and calls like these over and over again, Foxglove Farm is known for having not only the most beautiful Cavachon puppies, but also Cavachons who are healthy and sweet natured, easy to train and house-train, Cavachons who make such wonderful family dogs that over and over again, my past customers return for a second and even third Foxglove Farm Cavachon. My name is Terry Cross & I have been breeding beautiful companions for over 30 years. Not only have I shown and handled many breeds in AKC conformation classes, I have also worked as a veterinary technician, managed animal hospitals, trained in obedience and lastly and perhaps most importantly as far as canine experience goes, my husband John and I owned a very popular Bed & Biscuit in beautiful Charleston South Carolina for over 18 years. All that to say I KNOW DOGS having worked with them in so many capacities, over the years I have learned what makes a GREAT companion, and perhaps more importantly, what does NOT!
It's important to know how to raise a Cavachon in a way that makes them easy to house-train & eager to please, they need lots of structure, without it they learn bad habits that may last a lifetime! I have never been a fan of barky, hyper, high energy small breeds that require the patience of a saint to live with, I call it the "Small Dog Syndrome" and while I love the size and low maintenance of smaller canines, often what goes along with them is a less than desirable temperament, one that barks noisily for little reason, one that is simply too tightly wound and energetic and in many ways is a less than ideal choice for a family pet.
I fell in love with the Cavachon nearly a decade ago, in my opinion as close to the perfect companion as you'll find, the offspring of the sweet & gentle Cavalier King Charles Spaniel & the hypo-allergenic non-shedding comical little snowball, the Bichon Frise. Combined, these two super companions canines, create an even more delightful canine creation, a wonderfully gentle yet sporty Fido with the beautiful coat pattern and markings of the exquisitely, colored Cavalier & the hypo-allergenic and non-shed qualities of the Bichon Frise.
In addition to the exceedingly desirable coat characteristics of the purebred parents, the Cavachon puppy also inherits one of the most delightful personalities of any breed I've ever handled. They are in addition to being most affectionate and sweet natured, extremely smart and easy to train, an important trait in any family companion. They are almost without exception, an extra quiet breed, not barkers, not hyper, but dependably happy & sweet, they love to cuddle & are wonderful as children's pets. Cavachons have the heart and sensibilities of larger breeds, they love to join in just about any family activity, from swimming or boating (Cavachons LOVE the water!) I've always been a big dog lover, and Cavachons are a perfect fit if you don't want a "fou fou" dog, if you want a more athletic and sporty canine in an easy to manage size, one that makes you laugh, but doesn't shed all over your furniture, one that rides happily along to Starbucks for a Latte, but doesn't make your allergies act up, one that snoozes by your feet in the evenings, and resides happily with everyone from your Golden Retriever to the family feline,,, look no further, you have found the PERFECT BREED!
"...We absolutely LOVE him. He is just the greatest little puppy! Jim takes him out in the morning before I get up and then I hear the stampede of little paws running up to get in bed with me for a snuggle before we start the day!
He loves to be right by our side but sleeps easily through the night and never complains about going to bed in his crate. He wags his tail so hard he pretty much knocks himself off balance! His disposition is just so sweet and he is really easily corrected. I think he just got a really great start to life.
Our twins could not be more thrilled with him and are learning how to live gently with a little puppy. He already knows how to sit and shake! He has a new buddy in the neighborhood, Monty the Maltipoo : ) Anyway, thanks again for your hard work getting him ready to come to us! Everyone asks us what kind of dog he is and where we got him!
Stephanie Whittaker and family!
I'm so happy you stopped by today. Foxglove Farm is home to some of the sweetest, most beautifully adorable puppies on the planet!
Dear Puppy People, Just a note before you turn the page to see our newest available Cavachon pups. I am simply amazed at the process and how it is possible for individuals and families who live sometimes in far away places to choose one of our Cavachons.
These individuals sometimes come to us after searching through hundreds of ads on the Internet, from looking at dozens of tiny little faces gazing out of photos on a computer screen. And even more amazing, how hundreds of thousands of you become loyal fans of our site, both those who've purchased a Cavachon, (MANY have purchased you a second and even THIRD Cavachon from Foxglove Farm) and those who simply long for a little Cavachon puppy companion perhaps sometime in the future and love to visit and see our newest "kids" and enjoy the latest
blog entry (thepuppydiva.com), I'm thrilled that we have been able to match many of you with YOUR "Perfect Puppy", that this process is indeed blessed and helped by our prayers - prayers that the puppies we raise find the right homes
and bring JOY to the hearts of those who adopt them.
It's not without a huge amount of effort though. As Cavachon breeders > we give them a big head start on house-training, grooming, nail trimming, crate training (in fact most of our puppies are sleeping through the night when they leave for their new homes, a VERY good thing!), all super important basics that a Cavachon will remember the rest of his or her life! Our Cavachon pups love people, other pets, & of course CHILDREN,,, and are simply the most beautiful Cavachons you'll find anywhere! (I've heard that comment hundreds of times!!!)
I know it's rather a daunting process, to find the Cavachon puppy that will fit the best into YOUR life. My advice is the same to all that ask me – this is a long-term investment. Really good Cavachons are not inexpensive and you'd better get the very best one you can find, one that will pay for itself thousands of times over in being not only completely adorable and BEAUTIFUL, but also in being easy to live with, loving and social with family and friends, super easy to housebreak, wonderfully trainable and just a JOY to own!
Kindest Puppy Regards,
Terry Ellen Cross
