The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is a small Spaniel dog and a toy breed originating from the United Kingdom.

They result from cross-breeding these dogs after Charles II’s death and are now known for their red and white colouring, silky coat, large floppy ears and big, dark eyes that melt your heart.

Today, this breed is prevalent in England and has grown in popularity in the USA in recent years, too. Dog lovers adore them for their happy, affectionate nature, sweet, gentle faces and playful antics.

Meet the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is small for a Spaniel dog but one of the largest toy breeds, weighing 13 to 18 pounds and measuring 12 to 13 inches tall. Their faces are their primary attraction, and their big round eyes that are dark in colour can steal the heart of any dog enthusiast. Their eyes, combined with their large floppy ears, give them a genuinely loving expression.

Aside from their gorgeous faces, their medium to long, silky hair and plumy tails are their hallmarks. In addition, cavaliers commonly have distinct white and chestnut red coats, known as “Blenheim”. Still, they can also be Tricolour (black and white), black and tan, or ruby red.

Their hair is either straight or wavy, and they often have long “feathering” on their ears, feet, legs and tail. However, this feathering is not present in puppies but slowly appears as they grow into adults. They are seasonal shedders and require regular brushing and combing, especially during spring and fall.

They are generally a healthy breed that lives between 9 and 15 years. However, Mitral Valve Disease, which can lead to heart failure, is commonly found in Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. Cavaliers are also prone to Syringomyelia, which affects the brain and spine. What’s more, as a ​​short-nosed breed, these pups can be sensitive to the heat, so be sure to keep them cool in the summer.

The temperament of a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are athletic dogs that are playful, curious and full of energy. They have a strong hunting instinct and love to chase anything that moves. While this is fine if they are playing in the garden, it does mean they are not the most streetwise dog. Thus, you should walk your Cavalier on a leash so they can not run off and harm themselves or other creatures.

Their personalities vary from dog to dog, and some Cavaliers are quiet and calm, whereas others can be rowdy. However, they generally love people and are instantly friendly towards strangers and guests, especially those who come bearing treats. Thus, if they bark at the doorbell, it’s not aggressively but rather due to initial fear and uncertainty.

Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are incredibly affectionate and loving towards their owners. Still, they tend to become owner-dependent, so you cannot leave them alone for long as they will quickly develop separation anxiety. When you’re home, your Cavalier will always be right behind you, simply happy to be in your presence.

These dogs are smart enough to learn commands and tricks, and because of their curious and social nature, they are always happy to learn new things. They are also extremely eager to please, so they will happily play fetch, feeling great pride in bringing the ball back to you.

10 reasons to add a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel to your family

  1. They are a royal breed - This breed is famed for its association with King Charles. Plus, they were favourites among various British royal families.
  2. They have adorable faces - Their large round eyes and cute fluffy ears give them a super sweet expression.
  3. They are toy size - Because of their small size, they have relatively low living costs, are suitable for someone who lives in a flat, and are easy to transport around.
  4. They are friendly towards strangers - This breed is most likely to bark from hearing another dog, rather than because people walk past the house. They are usually instantly friendly towards guests and strangers they meet on walks.
  5. They excel in obedience training - They are a highly trainable breed in all areas. However, as they are always eager to please their owners, obedience training Cavaliers is always a joy.
  6. They are very adaptable - Cavs do well in a wide range of environments, enjoy travelling and deal well with change. Moreover, they tend to adapt their energy levels to yours.
  7. They are playful but tire quickly - Unlike bigger dogs, Cavs only need about 20 minutes of exercise before they konk out. Thus, you don’t have to schedule long walks every day with this breed.
  8. They have a loving temperament - Although they are a sporting breed, they are also companion animals that show extreme loyalty towards their owners.
  9. They are snuggly - Thanks to their small size, they make excellent lap dogs and adore nothing more than cuddling with their humans.
  10. They are good with children - Their high energy and playfulness matches that of a young child’s, so they typically become great playmates and are very gentle, too.

Best homes for a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

Although these hounds can adapt to different environments and people, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are house dogs. Therefore, they need an owner who will keep them indoors with the family rather than put them outside or in the garage alone.

Moreover, because they depend on their owners for affection and validation, they are not suitable for working professionals who are out of the house for eight or so hours a day. Moreover, they may prove a little too energetic for retired couples. Their ideal home would be with an active young family where there is always someone available.

They make beautiful playmates for children, get on well with other dogs and do not act fearful of larger canines. Their energetic and playful nature means they may not be the best breed for a household with cats, though. That being said, if they grow up together from an early age, they will most likely learn to play nice with them.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Puppies

Why should I choose a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel from The Pedigree Paws rather than elsewhere?
At The Pedigree Paws, we work with top Cavalier King Charles Spaniel breeders who are deeply passionate about animal welfare. We are firmly against puppy mills, and thus, we only work with moral breeders with canine health and wellbeing as their top concern. Therefore, you can have total confidence that you are not supporting unethical breeding when you choose a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppy from The Pedigree Paws.
Is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel the right puppy for me?
If you're looking for a playful yet affectionate puppy who will become a loyal life companion, then yes. Cavalier puppies are adorable and energetic, so they do well with active people who have lots of time for them. Moreover, they become dependent on their humans, so you should only consider this breed if you or another household member is often home. Plus, they thrive in homes with other dogs and are excellent pets for young children due to their friendly and gentle nature.
Is The Pedigree Paws trustworthy?
Unfortunately, due to the continued operation of corrupt puppy mills, pedigree puppy breeding remains a controversial industry. However, we set ourselves apart by selecting the highest quality and top-rated puppy breeders in the UK and Europe. To ensure they are the best, we conduct comprehensive checks and have strict rules in place. The increasing number of excellent testimonials from previous customers shows our hard work and transparency is paying off.
Are Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppies from The Pedigree Paws healthy?
Although Cavalier King Charles Spaniels often live long and healthy lives, they are prone to health conditions. Therefore, we ensure each Cavalier puppy has a thorough health check and examination with a licensed veterinarian before allowing the breeder to list them on the site. The vet will deworm, vaccinate and microchip your new puppy, too. What's more, our puppy breeders always run DNA tests on the parents of their puppies before listing them on the platform. This confirms for you that they are purebred and shows there are no hereditary medical conditions your puppy could get.
When can I receive my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppy?
We know you can't wait to bring your new Cavalier puppy home; however, we always act with the puppy's welfare as the top priority. This means we will never separate a puppy from its mother before it is ready and fully weaned. Every puppy from The Pedigree Paws stays with their mother until they are between eight and 12 weeks old. This is also in your best interest, as early-weaned pups often develop behavioural issues. The distance between the breeder and you will also determine how long it will take to receive your pup. The breeder will contact you with confirmation of the delivery date.
Can I see the parents of my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppy?
As a fully transparent agency, we always allow our customers to meet the breeder via video call. This will enable you to see the puppy you are interested in and its parents before committing. In addition, seeing healthy and well mannered Cavalier parents will assure you that your pup has good genetics and is coming from a trusted breeder.
Will I receive the pedigree documents of my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel?
When you buy a purebred puppy, it's only natural that you want proof of its pedigree status. Therefore, you'll be pleased to know that every puppy from Pedigree Paws comes with official records from a leading breeding organisation. Thus, you'll receive pedigree documents for your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppy from an international association like FCI or The Kennel Club.
Do your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppies come from good breeders?
All our Cavalier King Charles Spaniels come from Britain's most trustworthy and reputable puppy breeders. We have a thorough application procedure and tight requirements to filter out breeders who don't match our high values. For example, every breeder must prove they treat their puppies and breeding dogs like human family members rather than money-making products. Our breeders also fulfil the strict breeding guidelines of international pedigree societies like The Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI). Therefore, there is no doubt that your Cavalier pup will be fully healthy, well-mannered, and have a lovely temperament.
Are these Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppies raised in a family home or breeding facility?
We only work with breeders who look after their puppies in their homes and do not keep them in cages away from their mothers. This is essential for many reasons. Firstly, growing up in a family home is excellent for the puppy's socialisation and prepares them for an effortless transition to their forever home. Furthermore, they receive attentive care and stay with the dam until they are 100% ready to leave. Because we believe this is the only ethical way to raise pups, we don't work with puppy mills. These organisations do not deliver the care or socialisation that is essential for young puppies. What's more, they separate them from their mother before they are ready, leading to poor development and a host of behavioural problems.
How can I help my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel settle into its new home?
Bringing a new pet home is an exciting time for both puppy and owner. However, as it’s such a significant change, your new pup may feel a little overwhelmed or scared. Therefore, we advise following a couple of steps to guarantee a successful introduction. Before they arrive, set up their bed, food and water bowls and pee pads. When they arrive, maintain calm energy to keep them relaxed, so avoid showing your excitement or showering them with excess affection. Furthermore, keep your Cav on their leash and slowly take them around each room, showing them their new things. Finally, make sure their bed is in a quiet environment where they can feel safe. Consider placing a warm hot water bottle under their pillow for extra comfort.
