We love all dogs, but we really love the Cavalier hybrids - the Cavapoo and Cavachon. If you have one of these incredible dogs, you already know why we're obsessed. If you don't, we hope you will learn more about them here. Our goal is to provide information and resources to those interested in these awesome dogs and to help others better decide if one of these breeds might be right for their family.
Please know that we are not vets - we are dog lovers and animal advocates. The information we provide is compiled from our own personal experience, online research, conversations with responsible breeders and veterinarians, participation in numerous organizations and online forums on these dogs and valuable resources such as the AKC. We've all been actively involved in the local SPCA for decades, so we consider ourselves well informed dog lovers who simply can't get enough of these breeds. We would love for you to learn more about our family and our passion here.

LierChonPoo focuses primarily in Cavalier hybrids (specifically the Cavapoo and Cavachon) designed for those seeking a lower shedding option or worried about some of the health issues related to the Cavalier breed. If you are seeking a purebred Cavalier, we highly recommend you visit Just A Little Cavalier.
The Cavachon & Cavapoo
Due to the many health problems of the Cavalier, some "intentional hybrids" or "designer dogs" have been developed which bring owners the option to get some of the lovable Cavalier traits in a dog that sheds less and (if properly bred) has less health concerns. Of the intentional Cavalier hybrids, the Cavapoo and Cavachon are our favorites. While many Cavalier enthusiast disagree with any breeding of Cavaliers with other purebreds, we remind ourselves that every breed we recognize today was once a hybrid.

We Love the Following Brands
Every dog is different, but we've come to love and trust these brands! We only place advertisements on our page for brands we highly recommend and trust with our own pets!
Reputable breeders use DNA testing to produce the highest quality dogs. We provide prospective owners a full Embark DNA report on every dog we breed. Owners can also gather lots of useful information by DNA testing their own dogs. Our preferred DNA testing company is Embark. See some examples of how we use DNA in these blog posts.
