Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - Guide to Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

Description: The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is a beautiful, loving and friendly dog. These affectionate dogs love to cuddle and they make great companions. Cavalier King Charles Spaniels have large, round eyes, a long feathered tail, silky long hair and a nearly flat head between the ears.

The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is descended from the King Charles Spaniel and other small toy Spaniels seen in many sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth century paintings and tapestries with aristocratic families. Cavalier King Charles Spaniels were considered a luxury since they were not working dogs.

King Charles II was very fond of spaniels and always had two or three with him. He so much favored these dogs that he wrote a decree that which allowed them to be accepted into any public place which included the Houses of Parliament. In England this decree is still in existence today.

The first Cavalier King Charles Spaniel entered America in 1952. Because of the small numbers of this breed, they did not gain full breed recognition until January of 1996. The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is AKC's 140th breed.
