The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is a wonderful pet to have. They are one of the largest of the toy breeds, and are known worldwide for their beautiful and affectionate nature. Their adorable eyes and expressions will melt anyone’s heart at first sight!

Best Friends

These dogs like to be with their owners and are best not left alone in the garden the whole day. Don’t be surprised to find them following you around the house or wherever you go! This means however that they do not make good guard dogs as they are friendly to everyone. These dogs are good with other pets and child-friendly as well. They are also the perfect pet for first time dog owners!

Cavaliers can weigh up to 18 pounds and reach about 12-13 inches at the shoulder. Thus they make good apartments dogs as well because they are small. They do however need their exercise as well, like any other dog. This breed does have the potential to become overweight, but with the right amount of food and exercise this shouldn’t be a problem!

While drinking water, their longs ears tend to get wet too. You're sure to find small trails from their ears all over!
