JULIA WADE I’ve had Cavalier King Charles Spaniels for 18-20 years, and I just don’t think I could have another sort of dog. They’re just lovely gentle-natured dogs, fun, cuddly, beautiful to look at. I don’t think there’s another dog that surpasses them really.
JANE HANSHAW A Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is a small medium lively dog. They shouldn’t be too hard to fit into most families really, and should definitely be non-aggressive. There have been some health issues, so you need to check your breeding fairly carefully. But with appropriate training these dogs are just game little Spaniels that are good to play with to have as a family pet.
JULIA WADE Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are renowned for having heart problems in the breed. It’s best that if you was buying a Cavalier to go to a reputable breeder. Use an accredited breeder through the Kennel Club, and then you know that the dogs have been screened for hear problems, and also eye screened to make sure that there’s no prone to cataracts when they’re older.
AMANDA SANDS The King Charles Spaniel, real cute little dogs. Very friendly, very affectionate. They don’t need masses of exercise. So if somebody’s wanting that companion and that friend, they make great little pets.
JULIA WADE Oh, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are a good breed for anybody, whether it’s an elderly person, because they’d be a really good lapdog, cuddly dog and happy with short walks. They love children, they love playing with children. So family dog really. Plus they’re also a really good size, so they don’t overtake your whole house.
JITKA KRIZOVA Cavalier King Charles Spaniel has a silky coat, and a combination of short hair and long hair. From a grooming point of view, regular brushing is very important, at least two or three times a week. Also regular bathing, once a week up to once in twelve weeks. If you don’t want to keep your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel in full coat, they can be trimmed shorter by a professional dog groomer. Some people choose a shorter haircut for their Cavaliers because it is just easier to look after the coat.
JULIA WADE Yeah, some people do clip them, which actually takes away all the feathering of the Cavalier, and in my opinion it does run the look of them. I love Cavaliers, due to the fact that they’re just really friendly, just affectionate beautiful dogs. And just such a pleasure to have in the home.
