The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel will generally
adapt to whatever lifestyle is offered. The Cavalier
can be equally at home with a large, boisterous
family with children as he can with a single
person, whatever that person’s age.
The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel can be happy
living with energetic owners who are likely to take
their dog out on long, exciting walks, but can also
live a comfortable and happy life following a more
sedentary existence. This dog breed is often
described as "a people dog,” one that appreciates, enjoys and needs human company.
This comfort-loving breed adores cuddling in laps
and snuggling on soft pillows, but he also has
more athletic instincts than you might think.
Indeed, he can be a runner and chaser.
A fenced yard or a leash are musts at all times,
because many Cavaliers will pursue squirrels, chipmunks, low-flying birds, even butterflies,
right into the street.
