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?

1 Comment

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.

Do Cavalier King Charles Spaniels come in different sizes? I saw a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel the other day that seemed taller then I expected.

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.

why is the lifespan of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels so short? I have read that Cavalier King Charles Spaniels only live 9-11 years. Is this accurate and why such a short life span?

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

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.

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.
