Overview
The English Toy Spaniel breed began as a small sporting Spaniel highly favored by English royalty and named after King Charles II. Only in North America is the King Charles Spaniel referred to as the English Toy Spaniel. During the 1800's this breed was crossed with Oriental short-nosed dogs to produce the breed of today.
Character
English Toy Spaniel's are the smallest of all Spaniel breeds. They are squarely built, compact, and sturdy. The two most distinctive features of the English Toy Spaniel are their short-nose and domed head. They exhibit a regal and dignified demeanor.

Does your English Toy Spaniel bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
The English Toy Spaniel is affectionate, friendly, gentle, and charming. This breed is loyal, devoted, and completely content to be with their family. They do well with older considerate children and other pets. English Toy Spaniel's are very social, non-demanding, quiet, and ideal family companions.
Care
The English Toy Spaniel requires regular brushing to keep shedding to a minimum. Bathing should be done when necessary using a mild shampoo. It is absolutely crucial to daily cleanse the ears and eyes of this breed. As a short-faced breed they have a tendency to snore and wheeze. They do not do well in hot and humid climates or in being overly-exerted. English Toy Spaniel's are prone to such health issues as heart disease, ear infections, slipped stifle, eye problems, and respiratory problems. This breed must be protected from extreme heat and cold.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The English Toy Spaniel has a profuse coat that is straight or slightly wavy, glossy, and silky in texture. There is heavy fringing on the body, chest, and ears with long feathering on all legs and feet. The English Toy Spaniel breed is an average shedder.
Training
Socialization and basic obedience are recommended. The English Toy Spaniel breed is intelligent and eager to please. However, they may have a slight tendency to be willful. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, and consistency. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new English Toy Spaniel puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
The English Toy Spaniel requires very minimal exercise. They are well suited for apartment living. This breed is capable of meeting their exercise needs indoors, but does enjoy short securely leashed walks. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

I have bad allergies, especially with dust, dandruff, do you think the English Toy Spaniel breed will be a good choice? Also, what are the main issues that English Spaniels have, on average with every dog? Thanks!!!

The English Toy Spaniel is not considered a hypoallergenic breed of dog. However, since you are allergic to dust and dandruff, I would insist that you get a scratch test for dogs as well. As you may just be allergic to what is on the dog, not the dog itself. In which case, you can make sure that with regular grooming, the dog doesn't effect your allergies. As for the English Toy Spaniel, their main health issues include Patellar Luxation, Patent Ductus Arteriosis (PDA) - a common heart defect, Mitral Valve Insufficiency - another heart defect, Cleft Palate, Cryptorchidism, Seborrhea, Retinal Dysplasia, Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease, Hydrocephalus, Umbilical Hernia, Open Fontanel, and Fused Toes. Unfortunately, the English Toy Spaniel has a lot of health problems that plague the breed.

Would English Toy Spaniels do good if left alone during the day?

If you plan on leaving your dog for the day while you are at work, please understand that your dog has to hold his/her bladder all day long then. That is very hard on a dog and can cause issues. Make sure you can come back at lunch time, hire a dog walker or pay a neighbor, family member or fiend to come over in the afternoon and let your dog out to use the bathroom.

Then too, you could always create a place to set up a piddle pad.

Do English toy spaniels like to sit on your lap? On a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being the most stubborn and independent and 10 being the most willing to please, how would you rate the English toy?

Every dog is different, as some English Toy Spaniels like to sit in their owner's laps, while other's don't. They are an affectionate breed of dog normally and are about a 5 on the intelligence scale for training.

How many times do you have to walk a English Toy Spaniel a day and do they shed hair?

English toy spaniels do shed but not a whole ton. They don`t need tons of excercise but a daily 20-30 minute walk should be fine. A dog that does not shed, is affectionate and doesnt need much excersise would be something like a bichon frise, poodle toy or mini, maltese ,affenpinscher,bolognese,chinese crested,havanese, shih tzu, yorkshire terrier,mexican hairless terrier toy or mini,american hairless terrier,mini schnauzers, silky terrier,skye terrier or a papillon which may shed a little. most of the terriers that i put here probably need a bit more excersise than the other small breeds. hope this helps.

Every dog needs exercise. If you don't want to exercise an animal, then get a cat or a fish. The English Toy Spaniel needs about an hour of exercise a day. And yes, the E.T.S does shed, quite a bit actually.
