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.

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
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
I was very impressed with this company. Communication was excellent and very friendly and helpful. Process went very smoothly and quick. We had our puppy shipped which went fine. Excellent care was taken with crate for the plane ride she never even got sick. Premier pups seems very concerned with health and well being of animals which was very important to me. Received papers from their vet and lots of vitamins for first couple of weeks. We received a beautiful puppy we’ve had for over a month now. My vet says she’s very healthy and the sweetest cuddliest animal we’ve ever owned. It was very nice to receive phone calls from premier pups to check on things for a week after our puppy was home. I was looking for months for a puppy and am very happy with the place I chose to purchase one. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a puppy
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!
Milo (Deon) Thanks so much for working with us, Milo has been an awesome addition to our family. He gets along great with his buddy Leo.
We adopted Penny a few weeks ago. The people at Premier pups made the transaction so smooth and easy. She is a wonderful dog and the kids and I just love her!!! Very smart and such a cuddle bug. I couldn't have asked for a better place to get such a great puppy from! Thank you so much for our lil Penny! Our new addition is perfect!
Recently acquired my third Cavalier baby (Zoe) from Premier Pups and could not be more in love. Extremely happy with the whole process and the staff were always able to answer my questions. Upon recieving each of them via plane, I received several follow up calls from the staff to check on the puppy at the time and insure everything was going well. I would highly recommend Premier Pups and would be happy to give a personal reference to anyone that was interested!
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.
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
When looking for a puppy there were many choices out there. I came across Premier pups website and loved the professional website and the customer service. 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. I am super impressed by the process, and would recommend to anyone. Thank you for bring us so much joy.
