The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is a toy spaniel bred to be a companion dog. They are friendly, happy dogs who are great with children, other animals, and they never see a stranger. Their tails are always waggin' to match their happy dispositions. Cavaliers adapt well to any lifestyle, as long as they can spend time with their owners.

The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is an elegant, energetic toy breed that is compatible for city or country life. Successful in conformation shows, obedience and agility, they also make wonderful therapy dogs due to their sweet, gentle natures. The breed also became a TV star when featured on "Sex and the City" as Charlotte York's dog.
A Look Back For centuries
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel (a namesake of King Charles II of Britain) has been recorded in paintings and tapestries together with their aristocratic families. It is obvious from these works of art that Cavaliers were a luxury item and lived "the easy life" as housepets. Though used successfully for shooting small game, the Cavalier's true purpose has always been that of companion.
