General info on the breed
|Cavalier King Charles Spaniels
have a gentle
nature and are extremely good with children. They are
eager to please, highly affectionate, crave attention and
love, and love all in the family unconditionally, thus should
not be bought as guard dogs.
The dog is fairly small, and is thus happy in any home, or small abode such as flats. However they are derived from hunting dogs, and thus need to stretch their legs and run. And wow can they run !
They need daily exercise, and a good walk is important. We tend to use leashes because if they start to chase something, you will never catch them. These little cuties, after some serious exercise, if tired, will simply sit down, give you an adoring look, and then expect you to carry them home.
However there are things to watch for.
