Other Names
  • Bichon Spaniel
  • Cockachon

The Cock-A-Chon is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Bichon Frise and the American Cocker Spaniel. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

Rosco the cream Cock-A-Chon is laying in a cardboard box. There is a plastic bottle in front of him

"Rosco, a Bichon Frise and Cocker Spaniel mix breed (Cock-A-Chon) at 19 months old, sleeping in a box. Worn out from playing with one of his favorite toys, an empty pop bottle. He looks forward to his nightly walks. He KNOWS when it's 9 p.m. He loves to sleep in the bathtub when it's hot outside. He's very protective when a stranger comes around."

Close Up head shot - Ginger the wavy tan Cock-A-Chon is getting its neck pet

"This is Ginger. She is our Bichon/Cocker mix who is 13 years old. She is not only beautiful, she is smart, loving and her favorite pastime is cuddling!

"Ginger was born near Toronto, Canada. She is 20 pounds and she doesn't shed. Her hair is soft and wavy and she is checked by the vet at least once a year. We bathe and groom her ourselves and she doesn't seem to mind at all.

"Ginger needs to be walked daily, as do all dogs. She happily sniffs and greets our neighbours. All my friends and neighbours tell me how sweet and friendly she is. Ginger loves children, adults and other dogs! Ginger lives with two other dogs as well, purebred Bichons, whom she loves!

"I'd like to say that a Bichon/Cocker mix makes a wonderful family pet and our Ginger has been a blessing to our family for the past 13 years!"
