Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Skills

The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel can be originally traced to the King Charles Spaniel, where it was selectively bred to get a bigger head with a flatter face. The Cavalier was bred when it was crossed with the King Charles and the Cocker Spaniel. They were popular as pets for the ladies during the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries, as they were essentially used as lapdogs in order to generate heat. Their current name, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, was given to them due to the patronage of King Charles II, who could not travel anywhere without his spaniels. He also made a decree that is still in law today that the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel be allowed in public places. Though they were originally bred as hunting dogs, today they are known as show dogs and companion dogs for the individual and the family.
