Cavalier King Charles Spaniel black and white

The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is an elegant, energetic toy breed that is compatible for city or country life. Successful in conformation shows, obedience and agility, they also make wonderful therapy dogs due to their sweet, gentle natures. The breed also became a TV star when featured on "Sex and the City" as Charlotte York's dog. Their silky coats come in four colors: Blenheim (chestnut and white), Tricolor (black, white, and tan), Ruby (solid red), and Black and Tan.

A Look Back
For centuries, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel (a namesake of King Charles II of Britain) has been recorded in paintings and tapestries together with their aristocratic families. It is obvious from these works of art that Cavaliers were a luxury item and lived "the easy life" as house pets. Though used successfully for shooting small game, the Cavalier has always had as its true purpose that of being a companion.

Right Breed for You?
Friendly and easy to train, the Cavalier is a trustworthy companion for children and thrives as part of a family. The coat requires weekly brushing but no trimming. The breed is adaptable in their need for exercise, happy with either sleeping on the couch or taking long walks.
