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. Recognized as one of the largest toy breeds and true to their heritage, these loyal and devoted pups make for the ultimate companion and lap dog.
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 are very happy with our puppy he is a great addition to our family, and we are very happy with premier pups good customer service and they follow up on every step. Thank you so much!
After trying to adopt three different puppies from three different companies. Two being a scam and one taking so long to get back to me, the puppy had already been adopted I finally stumbled across Premierpets.com and cannot tell you how pleased I am with them. I touched base through the site and was the very next morning. They were helpful, professional, and with the information they requested from you, I felt secure in adopting from them. They made things easy and Premier for my family to adopt Sadie and bring her home as soon as possible. I received confirmation the very moment that we agreed on adoption and then was notified the following day with her flight and tracking information. They send helpful information as to what to expect the first couple of weeks in regards to eating and care for the puppy, followed up with an email the day after arrival with some great tips and called to check on her a couple of times as well. Although we have been out and about and haven't been able to connect, I can't tell you how pleased I am to have chosen to adopt through Premierpets. Sadie came happy, healthy and full of love! You can tell she was really cared for before we received her. Thank you so much for our new family member from the bottom of our hearts!!!!! Love, The Warren Family
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!
A few days ago I adopted a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. I could not be happier with my experience. Thank you for all of the advise and follow up calls. We love our little girl. She is amazing.
Rosie is our 3rd fur baby and we couldn't be more in love!! We are so thankful to Premier Pups for all of their help from start to finish, they were always available for any questions or help that we needed. We can't wait to add our 4th Cavalier from them. Thank you all so much for all you do! The Evilsizor Family
So this pandemic has changed a lot... there are so many puppy scams online and I almost fell prey to one of them. THIS IS NOT A SCAM. I was hesitant to purchase my puppers at first, but right afterwards I got a phone call from the nicest person confirming my pup. Then I got emails, texts, people were available whenever I needed them to ask questions. These people are SO NICE and I’ve never seen so much care put into the adoption process. Right now, my beautiful little girl is sleeping on my lap and we couldn’t be happier. I will scream from the rooftops that Premier Pups is incredible lol They are. You can absolutely trust them. I am willing to be a customer who is available to give a referral to anyone hesitant about this process. Premier Pups made this process so easy and stress free. I couldn’t be more grateful!!!
We purchased Gizmo (ace) back in April 2016, we have no disappointment. He's very playful always excited. He's very smart, loves everyone. Thank you
We were very skeptical buying our puppy online no more. We had to put our 12 1/2 year old yorkie and our 15 1/2 year old dachshund down within a month of each other it broke our hearts they were family not just dogs. I wasn’t sure I was ready for another dog yet until I saw this baby’s face. He has been such a joy. He had to be flown to us he came tail wagging very clean and very healthy looking and has just been a love. He is so smart is doing great potty training and doing good crate training. He goes for rides with us in his new car seat and just falls asleep loves his rides. We couldn’t be happier with our new family member and all the help along the way thanks premier pets
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. ????
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
