Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are toy breed spaniels known for their richly colored, smooth, and silky coat that comes in four colors: Blenheim (white and chestnut), tricolor (white/black/tan), ruby, and black and tan. The breed is also known for the lovely feathering of the hair on their feet, ears, legs, and tail.
Cavaliers get on excellently with kids and other pets. They are super adaptable to your lifestyle – whether as a couch potato or an athlete – although the latter is obviously better for your health. They are known for being affectionate, graceful, and gentle but also for their athleticism and stamina of a sporting spaniel. Keep this in mind – they need moderate exercise, enjoy walks, and do well at several doggie sports.
They have a keen hunting instinct, so if they aren’t on a leash and onto an exciting scent, you can call to your heart’s content with no response. Also, fence in your yard! Do note that Cavs are known to suffer separation anxiety. Their unconditional loyalty and love makes it hard for them to be left home alone.
