The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is a sweet dog with an ever wagging tail who is eager to please.

They are a small, balanced, silky-coated little dog with a domed head and large, dark eyes. Their coats are usually two colours but they can be tricolour too.

The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel was bred as a companion dog. Trainable, affectionate and happy, they love human company and are good natured with other animals.

They are quite active indoors but will enjoy a daily walk too. They don't require a lot of grooming but it is necessary to trim the hair between their pads and to check their ears.

Unfortunately, this adorable little dog is prone to some serious health problems: syringomyelia (a brain disease), eye problems, kneecap problems, back problems, ear infections, deafness and hip dysplasia. If considering getting a puppy, it is advisable to check the health of the sire and dam over a few generations.
