Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is a small breed of dogs that fall into the toy category. The Cavalier is the largest dog in the toy breed. This dog is a lap dog and they can grow from 12 to 13 inches and they weigh between 13 and 18 pounds. These dogs unlike other Cocker Spaniels have a full length tail that is feathered with long hair which they keep upright when they walk. This breed of dog has a very silky coat which falls between long and short hair. They have hair that feather on their ears, chest and tails. The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel breed has 4 colors that are recognized, they are Blenheim which is a chestnut on white background, Tricolor which is black and white with tan on the face, inside the ears and eyebrows. Then you have Black and Tan and then Ruby which is very rich reddish brown all over.

These types of dogs are very friendly and very affectionate. They are playful and very easy to please. These dogs are good with other children and even other animals. These dogs are not shy about checking out other people, they have great socialization skills that even work with other dogs. But because they do have a great socialization skill it means that they want attention all the time. They do not like or tolerate being alone for a long period of time. They need human or other dogs around. If you choose this type of pet make sure you have another pet or maybe get two dogs.



Like other purebreds these Cavalier King Charles Spaniels can suffer from many genetic defects, most common in these dogs are mitral valve disease and syringomyelia. They are very common and can be very severe, if you want to get this dog as a pet then when buying from a breeder ask to have a copy of the dog’s parent’s eye and heart certificates. Often in breeding can lead to digs with many defects because the parents come from the same bloodlines.

They can also suffer from Hip Dysplasia, Luxating Patella and Keratoconjunctivitis Sicca. Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do to stop these diseases, they are genetic, you may get a dog that doesn’t have any of these or maybe they will lead a great and long life until they do get one of these debilitating diseases.
