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.

We couldn’t be any happier with our experience with Premier. We’ve had Rocky for 1 year now and he’s just the perfect addition to our family! I waited to leave feedback until we spent a year with him. He is such a sweet, healthy boy!
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.
Pictured are Willow and Raina. Willow is our third pup we have adopted from Premier Pups. Raina was also from them 3 years ago. And once again, Premier pups has given us another perfect experience and perfect baby girl. I really appreciate how much they care for their pups and their check in calls.

I looked them up on bbb.org and found them to be legitimate so I cruised the pages to see what puppy caught my eye. Although lol the puppies were super adorable, I fell in love with Alexander at the time, now Frankie. The whole process was great and the customer service was superb.
