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.

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.
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.
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

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.

CAVALIER KING CHARLES SPANIEL
We just love him so much! He is the cutest little puppy. He is very happy in his new home and he is adapting very well. ????
I picked up my 9 week old puppy one year ago and my life has been forever changed. I can not thank premier pups enough for all of the patience and support during the process of bringing home a new family member. In the year that I have had my premier pup, I have had no issues with his health or anything of that sort. He is a well tempered dog and he is full of energy and love. I HIGHLY recommend this company for your next puppy and I also recommend doing the doctor pup subscription for at least a year should anything go wrong with your new puppy. I have since moved to Virginia but I plan to purchase my next furry friend from premier pups considering my fantastic experience so far.
Just had Mia’s first vet check our vet said she is very healthy and a beautiful little girl anybody who is having doubts about buying from premier pups please don’t they are a great company. We have 2 great pups purchased from them and couldn’t be happier
Gunner is an awesome dog. Very lovable. Premier Pups was great to work with. Pup was ready when promised, they stayed late in order for me to pick him up. Very good follow up to see how the pup is doing. If you have never experienced a Cavalier King Charles, I highly recommend. Breed is very easy to train, very docile and lovable. My pup loves to swim as well.
Baby CeeJay adapting really well to South Louisiana. He’s become the 5 lb Alfa male in my house. I could not thank Premeir Pups enough for all the calls to check on him. It’s proof some companies are not just about the money but the life of our kids. Thanks again Will
We were looking for a dog for a long time. We were about to get a Labrador but we are much happier with our cute Daisy. She is a very sweet and playful? Thank you premier pups!
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.
LilaLee came to us as a spunky 8 week old Cav puppy on July 12, 2019... she has since grown into a proud, confident and capable 1 year old. Incredibly smart, she was awarded her Canine Good Citizenship Certificate from the ACK at nine months old... and her trajectory continues. Her ability to social with dogs of all sizes and people of all ages has made her a favorite of everyone she meets. Let's see what she can do going forward as she begins her therapy dog training and takes on the obstacle courses! Thanks, Premier Pups, for your careful, hands-on interactions with your breeders to ensure healthy, happy pups.
