Do they get along with other pets?
Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are generally very
good with other dogs. Most breed members
thoroughly enjoy the company of other canines,
whom they usually see as potential friends.
This breed is not known for dominance, possessiveness, or territorial issues, although some may be jealous if they have to share the attention.
Cavalier King Charles Spaniels do well around
dogs which are both considerably smaller and larger
than themselves and easily adapt to a number
of canine housemates. It is always best to
use caution when introducing two strange
dogs to each other.
This is a breed which can be socialized to accept
other household pets, and often becomes friends
with them. Some Cavalier King Charles Spaniels
may constantly bother cats, not out of spite
but out of a desire to play and make friends.
They get along well with other dogs and can learn
to play nice with cats and other pets if introduced
to them at an early age. It helps if the cat is willing
to stand up for herself because a Cavalier
enjoys a good game of chase. They even
enjoy it if the cat chases back.
