The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is a wonderful toy spaniel that was bred solely to be a companion dog. The Cavalier is very adaptable in its need for exercise. Their main joy in life is to spend time with their people, either snuggling on the sofa or going for a walk or chasing a ball.
Cavaliers come in four colors: blenheim (white with brown spots); tri-color (white with black spots and tan markings on the eyebrows, cheeks, and under the ears and tail); ruby (a solid, chestnut red); and black and tan (solid black with tan on the eyebrows, cheeks, muzzle, under the chin and on the chest, on all four legs and under the ears and tail).
These affectionate and playful toy spaniels get along well with other dogs and with other pets. They are sensitive to their human companions and easy to train.
