Overview
The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is graceful and elegant. They are most associated in history with those of nobility and aristocracy. They are a well-balanced toy Spaniel that display an affectionate and loving nature.
Character
This breed is a true companion and lap dog. They are gentle, but also have a sporting character, which enables them to do well in agility and hunting events. This breed loves to swim and is a natural retriever.
Temperament
The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is best suited for a pampered indoor life. They display the temperament of an extrovert. They can be quite spirited and vocal. The Cavalier prefers to be with their family or other dogs. Although this breed is gentle and affectionate, they do not have patience for unruly children.
Care
The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel must be brushed weekly to prevent mats and tangles. Special attention must be given to the hair behind the ears. The Cavalier has a tendency to develop heart abnormalities early in life. It is extremely important to have regular veterinary examinations. They are also prone to allergies, deafness, cataracts, and diabetes.
Coat
The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel has a coat of silky hair that is medium to long in length. The coat is not curly but may have a slight wave. There is feathering in the tail, legs, feet, ears and chest.
Training
The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is highly intelligent and eager to learn. They can be trained in hunting and agility, and also do well in competitive obedience. The Cavalier makes an excellent therapy dog. They respond well to gentle training and high praise.
Activity
The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is an active and sporting breed that requires regular exercise to help keep their heart healthy. A fenced yard is a must, as they will give chase to anything that moves. They are able to adapt to apartment or condominium living provided there is a small yard.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Cavalier King Charles Spaniel health issues What are the health issues associated with the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel breed?

2 Comments

Anonymous

Contacting a responsible breeder, going to a dog show, contacting a trusted vet, or looking online is your best bet for health issues. But the main issues with the C.K.C.S are mitral valve disease, heart failure, syringomyelia (SM), hip and knee dysplasia, luxating patellas, episodic falling (EF), and certain vision disorder's like cataracts, corneal dystrophy, distichiasis, entropion, microphthalmia, progressive retinal atrophy, retinal dysplasia, and keratoconjunctivitis sicca. Hearing disorders are common for this breed as well, like primary secretory otitis media and deafness by the age of 3-5 years is common. As many as half of all C.K.C.S's have blood disorder's such as thrombocytopenia and macrothrombocytopenia as well.

At age 6, my cavalier developed an immune system disorder. After a year of intensive health care, it is thought that he has developed irritable bowel disease. He has had extensive testing done and many disorders were ruled out. I am very happy to realize there are many grave health disorders that were eliminated over the past 12 months and am blessed to be able to pay the $6,000 bill. He requires daily steroids, antibiotics and a special diet. He will continue to see his Vet, Cardiologist and GI Vet for ultrasound exams and frequent renal and liver blood work. Frequent lab values are key to managing his health as there is no cure. In summary, full coverage pet health insurance is vital if you have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.

As with any dog there may be slight variance between individuals, but no, Cavaliers do not come in different sizes. Cavaliers should be around 12-13 inches at the shoulder, and weigh between 13 and 18 lbs.

cavalier king charles spaniels can live for about nine to fourteen years. Their lifespan can be shortened by health issues including heart problems.

Among reputable, established breeders you will see many of their older dogs living into their teens due to conscientious breeding protocols. Average life span has actually increased over the past 10-15 years because of the best breeders' careful selection and timing of litters. The most prevalent and life threatening condition of these dogs is mitral valve degeneration that progresses to congestive heart failure. The speed of progression from the onset of a heart murmur to heart failure varies greatly from dog to dog but is heritable within a blood line. This is why it is so important to only buy a Cavalier puppy from a reputable breeder who health tests and offers at least 2 year health guarantees on their puppies. Backyard breeders and pet stores know nothing of the health lineage of their dogs or puppies and tend to have the most serious and early onset of heritable conditions. For more information about heritable disease in the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, go to ackcsc.org.

Yes, a Cavalier can be left alone all day, if need be, but NOT on a regular basis. Once in awhile, if you want to take a drive to Grandma's house, it's okay. Just don't leave anything within the Cavalier's reach that you don't want chewed up. :-p Do leave something available for your Cavalier that s/he is allowed to chew on. One of the treat "games" would be a good choice.

Cavalier cocker spaniel Personality pros and cons

2 Comments

There is no such breed as a "Cavalier Cocker Spaniel". If you are wondering what a CKCS crossed with a Cocker Spaniel would be like, take a look at each breed's temperament at dogbreedinfo.com. This will give you a general idea of what this mix might be like, but as with any mixed breed dog, there is no way to know for sure.
7/7/2014 3:05:27 PM

I would avoid any "breeder" who advertises mixed breeds or "designer dogs". There is nothing wrong with mixed breed dogs in general, some of the best dogs come from shelters. However someone who breeds "designer dogs" typically does not have the dogs best interests at heart. Some are uneducated at best, but the majority are downright unethical. Dogs come to you with a myriad of health and temperament issues can be avoided by appropriate health testing of parents. Backyard breeders, though they usually don't mean any harm, typically do not have the means or motivation to do any sort of health testing on their dogs.

Why do cavalier puppies scratch their crate and tear up their bed

1 Comment

All puppies can do this. They are bored. My suggestion would be not to put as much bedding in there until they are trained. Make sure your pup is not stuck in a crate all the time. Make sure they have something to chew on like a Nylabone.

A puppy can cost anywhere from $500 to $5000. With this breed you usually get what you pay for. So, if the parents and puppies are health tested , well vetted, and are on a good quality food they may be more expensive.

I would reconsider what I was offering my Cavalier to eat if s/he didn't want to eat. By-products and carcinogenic preservatives need to be avoided. You can also switch the brand of food you're offering from time to time. They like variety, too! If all else fails, check with your vet.

Give your pup Dannon yougurt weekly. Stmulate her digestive system with exercise, treats of mini carrots, celery, and frozen peas. Don't hand feed her, if she can eat from your hand, she can eat from a dish. Good luck, unless she is sick, this should work

We have bought from a good different breeder a female cavalier king charles spaniel at 8 weeks old. Currently our 2 yr old sleeps at the bottom of my parents bed, should we put the new puppy there as well, downstairs in a pen or in my room? also will two girls get along? what is the best way to introduce them together? Another question is our 2 yr old doesn't eat by herself her main food. We tried every technique including taking food off floor then back down later and every type of food. She ends up with gastro problems and needs a probiotic paste. We have to hand feed her main food pellets everyday. How do we get her to eat proper healthy food without her becoming ill.

Maybe you should have then get used to each other in a day. If they get along so they can bond let them sleep together for a while then to switch it up so you too could bond - have her sleep with you but if they dont get along ( witch they should maybe) have her sleep with you. The cavalier king charles spaniel breed of dog does not like to be alone for a long peroid of time :P I dont know the answer to the second question but you should go to a vet and ask questions and get her examined - hope it helps!

My Cavailier gets them on her front two feet. First, we switched to a hypoallergenic dog food and took out all chicken, beef, and pork from her diet. That seemed to help a bit with the feet, but mostly it helped with her ear infections. I also noticed that the cysts only appeared between 24-48 hours after her grooming appointment. Therefore, I am now researching to buy some special shampoos for sensitive skin. We also got an ointment that has a steroid in it from the vet that we put on the cysts once they pop up. This at least keeps her from licking it and helps with any pain until it drys up just like a scab. But these are definitely reoccuring and pop up every month or so. I am just assuming it is some type of skin allergy that affects this breed.

1) Make sure they're both neutered. Two unaltered males are going to be aggressive towards each other. Until you do this, you'll have a hard time getting them to get along. 2) Make sure they're both getting enough exercise - at least two walks per day, at least 20-30 minutes. 3) Make sure YOU'RE projecting a calm energy around them. Dogs read signals, and if you're tense, they'll be tense, and they'll start fighting.

Yes! Though the these two dogs are similar, they are, in fact, different breeds. The King Charles Spaniel, also known as the English Toy Spaniel, is the less widely known ancestor of the Cavalier. It is smaller with a shorter, more wavy coat. He is a brachycephalic breed, meaning it's nose is flat, like a pekingese. The Cavalier is larger, has a longer, less wavy coat and a regular nose. Both breeds share the same coat patterns and colors, in addition to having similar personalities. This is because they share a common ancestor. The ancestor of these to spaniels was simply a miniature type of working spaniel. Through selective breeding in the late 1600's and crossings with dogs similar to the pug, this spaniel became the English Toy variety. In the 1920's breeders sought to create a line of toy spaniels that looked more similar to the older variety shown in paintings and tapestries, this dog became the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Both breeds are recognized by the AKC.

It always amazes me how many people feel that they need to serve "dog food" to dogs or "baby food" to babies. We have been preparing delicious meals for our Cavalier ever since he was a baby. He loves all meats especially with the bones. We also serve rice and veggies and sometimes a little bit of dry Origins for balance. If you offer warm, mildly seasoned meats, your dog will be very happy and the bones help to keep the teeth clean and are very satisfying.

Stop spoiling your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. He's not eating paper and tissues because he's hungry, he's eating because he's bored. Walk him often and don't give him people food, give him dog food - he will learn quickly enough that he's not in charge of picking the menu. By the way, unless you're working with a vet to make sure your dog is getting enough of the right kind of nutrients, feeding people food sets them up for disabilities later in life.
