Cavalier King Charles Breed Characteristics

Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are a gentle and affectionate breed that love nothing more than to curl up next to its owners. Their kind nature has made them excellent family pets for generations, as they are highly devoted to their owner’s affection. They are also very adaptable and can be content in both indoor and outdoor living conditions.

This breed has some great physical characteristics too. Typically, they have long ears and an adorable face with big eyes which adds to their endearing personality. Their fur coat comes in four different colors – ruby, black and tan, blenheim (white with chestnut patches), and tricolor (black, white, and tan). The coat of a Cavalier is silky soft and can require frequent brushing to keep it looking its best.

While there are many positive qualities about the King Charles Cavalier, there are also some health issues which should be taken into consideration. Some of these issues include ear infections, eye problems, heart murmurs, patellar luxation (kneecap dislocation), syringomyelia (a neurological disorder that affects the spinal cord) and epilepsy.

Our guardian homes test for any hereditary diseases prior to breeding in order to reduce the chances of passing on any health complications.

Overall, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is an excellent family pet that will bring lots of love and joy into your home. With proper care and maintenance they can live a long and healthy life. If you are looking for a four legged companion, then this breed should definitely be considered!
