The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel or the Cavalier Spaniel for short originated in England during the 17th century and quickly became the favorite pet of the Royal House of England. Recognized as one of the largest toy breeds and true to their heritage, these loyal and devoted pups make for the ultimate companion and lap dog.

Appearance and Grooming

It has a strong, flat back and a long and silky fur with different colors like black, grey, white, red or cream, a long tail and a small body with long and pendent ears. It has a feathered tail which is carried high and moves when it runs. Because of its long coat, brushing is recommended often to minimize shedding.

Temperament  

It has a friendly, active and playful personality and it gets along with humans and other pets. It is very happy to accompany its owners at daily activities. It doesn’t bark frequently and is generally well-behaved.  Despite these, it can become suspicious around strangers. Sometimes, it tends to be shy or stubborn.

Family and Companionship

These playful puppies are just as happy to be city dogs as they are to be country dogs. They have soft and gentle nature, which makes them outstanding as therapy dogs. Their sweet and affectionate personality makes them a perfect companion for anyone especially, "empty nesters," as they love to cuddle and be close to their owner. Although these dogs have a proclivity for noisy greetings, they are generally not a protective breed.

Exercise

Don’t let their toy size fool you these dogs pack a lot of energy for their small frames.  A daily walk each day and some indoor active play will surely keep your puppy in peak condition.  

Training and Socialization

It is loyalty and obedience allow for this breed to be easily trained. Cavalier Spaniels are a true sporting breed and are often used in sport competitions for their athleticism. They are often used in dog sports such as agility, flyball and rally. Some have even shown their prowess as hunting dogs. Food rewards and positive reinforcement help ensure that training goes smoothly. Cavaliers have a soft personality, so yelling at them is counterproductive and likely to send them into hiding. Instead, reward them every time you see them doing something that is good.

Frequently Asked Questions

The cavalier is a toy spaniel that was originally bred to warm the laps of queens of England in drafty castles and on chilly carriage rides.

Cavaliers are excellent with children, but the age of the children is an important factor in choosing a puppy. Because Cavalier puppies are so small, many breeders will not sell young puppies to families with children under the age of five. An older puppy or adult dog will be more suitable for such families. Small children should always be well supervised when around a delicate puppy.

Cavaliers require daily to weekly brushing to prevent tangles and mats and to maintain their long, silky coat.

This breed measures between 12 to 14 inches tall at the shoulders with a weight between 13 to 18 lbs.

No. Cavaliers are not known for being vocal, which does not make them a good choice for a watch dog. Like any dog they may let out a happy bark when there is a visitor or another dog passing by, but in general they are pretty laid back.

These sweet little pups are the epitome of companionship since they were initially introduced as lap dogs. They have a gentle and friendly nature making them an ideal pet for a family with children or other animals.

Cavaliers have quite a bit of energy so adequate exercise is very important. These dogs love games of chase and swimming, which are both excellent choices for exercise. They will also need 1 to 2 daily walks to keep them fit and healthy.

Yes! In fact, this little one will be happy to go on any errand or adventure that you plan. However, it is important to get them used to car rides and traveling at a young age.

The average life expectancy is between 8 to 12 years.

The most common mixed breeds of Cavalier are the Cockalier – Cocker Spaniel King Charles Mix, the Cavapoo – The Cavalier Poodle Mix and the Beaglier – The Beagle Cavalier King Charles Mix.

Yes! Retirees, or "empty nesters," find the companionship, temperament, small size and easy maintenance ideal. They are true companion dogs who give lots of affection and love. They are an excellent partner for seniors who need a walking partner.

A Cavalier King Charles Spaniel has a longer muzzle than their King Charles counterparts. The King Charles Spaniel has a much flatter muzzle and they have distinctly domed heads whereas Cavaliers have much flatter heads. Cavaliers have a strong scissor bite whereas a King Charles Spaniel’s jaw is slightly undershot. Additionally, Cavaliers tend to be slight larger than their King counterparts. Their temperaments also differ- Cavaliers are a bit more outgoing where the Kings are a little more reserved.

Most dogs do not enjoy being left alone, especially for long periods of time, and the Cavalier is no exception. This breed craves human interaction and attention and can develop depression and separation anxiety if left alone often or for long periods of time.

If you’re looking for a watch dog you may want to keep searching. This sweet little pup is all about making new friends and are happy to greet anyone who comes there way.

Thanks to their lineage in sporting, the Cavalier has adopted the ability to learn and follow commands. They’re eager to please and considered easy to train.

Loc: Virginia Beach, VA

Penny was the light at the end of dark tunnel for me. Deciding to get her might just be the best decision I've ever made. My father knew I was looking for a puppy and led me to this site. I was a bit iffy about purchasing a dog online, but so glad I did. Penny is the sweetest little pup I have ever met, and I am already so in love with her. Her favorite place to sleep is on my shoulder. When she's not napping she's active as can be. She loves to hop around and chase leaves. She's the perfect addition to my little family and I couldn't be happier.

We were very skeptical buying our puppy online no more. We had to put our 12 1/2 year old yorkie and our 15 1/2 year old dachshund down within a month of each other it broke our hearts they were family not just dogs. I wasn’t sure I was ready for another dog yet until I saw this baby’s face. He has been such a joy. He had to be flown to us he came tail wagging very clean and very healthy looking and has just been a love. He is so smart is doing great potty training and doing good crate training. He goes for rides with us in his new car seat and just falls asleep loves his rides. We couldn’t be happier with our new family member and all the help along the way thanks premier pets

Breed: Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Client: Kelly G
Loc: Saratoga Springs, NY

Recently acquired my third Cavalier baby (Zoe) from Premier Pups and could not be more in love. Extremely happy with the whole process and the staff were always able to answer my questions. Upon recieving each of them via plane, I received several follow up calls from the staff to check on the puppy at the time and insure everything was going well. I would highly recommend Premier Pups and would be happy to give a personal reference to anyone that was interested!

Name: Colt
Breed: Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Client: Will & Angel LeBoeuf
Loc: Johnstown,Ohio

I lost my Son a year and a half ago and it’s been a rough road. We never get over losing a kid really. But me and my wife missed the love and unconditional love fur babies give. After about 3 months of research we decided this was the breed we wanted. We can’t express the gratitude we have for Premier Pups. Also the several phone calls we’ve gotten since we’ve brought him home to Louisiana. He’s adapting well to the climate and most of all us. We flew to Columbus,Ohio by Southwest Airlines so he could fly back with us in the plane. Worth every penny. We have renamed him CeeJay Roosevelt LeBoeuf after my Son Cosmo. CJ-Cosmo Junior. We know he will uphold Cosmo’s reputation and we believe Cosmo approves. Thanks again especially Ryan even though you are a Browns fan hahahaha. I saved another one from becoming a Buckeye fan since I’m Go Blue Michigan all day everyday lol.

After our ShihTzu passed away, we knew our coton de tulear needed a playmate. Unfortunately, her age and grief couldn’t be healed. But, Sammy, our Blenheim Cavalier healed our hearts and became the first fur baby to share our bed! He is the sweetest, most loving dog we’ve ever owned. Premier Pups was so easy to work with and trustworthy. Sammy came with food, medicine, and instructions on his care, as well as phone calls checking up on him!
