Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Dog Breed

The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is an enthusiastic and willing companion.


Charles the Cavalier Spaniels are easy to teach since they are friendly, intelligent, and eager to please. They enjoy company and get along well with kids and other animals.

Due to their adaptability, cavaliers will thrive in either an active or sedentary family. They enjoy running around outside but are also content to curl up on their owners’ laps because they are descended from hunting dogs.


The rich, velvety coat and large, rounded eyes of the Cavalier make him instantly identifiable.


12 to 15 years

Colour Collection

Cavaliers come in four distinct colour variations: ruby, a deep red; white with chestnut markings (sometimes called “Blenheim”); white with black markings; and black with tan markings.

Hair fall

Cavaliers occasionally lose. To minimise tangles and matting of the medium-length coat, regular brushing is advised.


Cavaliers are susceptible to obesity, just like other small dogs. Ear infections, knee and hip issues, and eye diseases including cataracts are among additional health dangers. Additionally, they are more likely to experience heart issues and specific neurological diseases.

Breed History

King Charles II inspired the naming of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Through the nineteenth century, British royalty continued to adore little spaniels.

The English Toy Spaniel, also known as the King Charles Spaniel in the United Kingdom, is a product of the Victorian era’s crossbreeding of the Cavalier King Charles with Asian toy breeds like the Pug.

The Cavalier became almost extinct over time, and the English Toy Spaniel developed a flatter face and a rounder cranium similar to the Pug.

American breeder Roswell Eldridge revived the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel in the 1920s by offering a $1,000 reward to any British breeder who could duplicate the original breed.
