Cavalier King Charles Spaniel 


Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are toy dogs, named after King Charles 2nd of England who liked this breed. The word "cavalier" possibly meant "horseman," as in the word "cavalry." King Charles 1st was followed by his cavaliers in the civil war. Horses were used for transport in those days. (No cars!)

About Cavaliers

Cavaliers ("Cavies") have long hair, long ears, and short noses. The tail carries a plume of long hair. The long coat needs regular brushing. The dogs come in a variety of colours.The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel makes a good, playful, loving pet and a good lap dog.

It may look like a baby that needs carried around all the time, but remember it's a DOG! Dogs have survived for thousands of years without man's help.

Regular exercise helps to keep the muscles strong, and being taken out for walks (once inoculations are up-to-date) is good mental stimulation. When buying a puppy, ask to see the vet's card which shows which inoculations the puppy has had. If the puppy has been seen by a vet, that's a good indication that it's healthy. You can keep your dog healthy by feeding a quality dog food (your vet can advise) and avoiding table scraps which can make a dog fat.

Keeping up with the inoculation program, and regular deworming will prevent many illnesses.

King Charles of England was an imposing sight as he rode around with his cavalcade. But now he is forgotten. Kings & presidents come & go; but God goes on forever. God is not impressed with the size of the cavalry or the army, but he delights in those who fear him. It is He who protects our borders. Psalm 147, verse 10 - 13
