I giggled all the way through this article! My ruby cavalier is 18 months and moves from licky lovebug to fearless hunter to defiant madam ... In one afternoon! She just wants to be adored!! Ruby has converted friends of mine who never cared for animals, they now use every opportunity to visit me, well I've come to realise its actually her they come to see. There isn't a day goes by where she doesn't make me laugh out loud, even if it's just the full body wiggles she gives when i get home or for insisting on carrying random toys in her mouth on walks- the massive fluffy snake was a special day!

Does anyone else have a younger Cav that instantly finds the first item nearest to him and picks it up and bring it to you when you enter a room or return home? Or youngest cavalier, Kooper, does this and it cracks us up. It could be a dog toy, a piece of paper or even a lid to a water bottle....We were curious about why he did that becuase our other 3 cavs do not do that. Just wanted to see if anyone else had a cav that did this?

It was an excellent article that throughly described the breed. I have been thinking a long time about getting a cavalier king Charles spaniel. This article left me with no doubts. I will now begin my search (after the holidays) for my very own cavalier.

This piece is to the T. My mom who is 84yrs old had my Cav along with his sister. They died several years ago and she misses them everyday. This piece brought me to tears and its still not easy on me. He lived with my mom.I couldnot split him up from his sister after reuniting them. He was in such loving hands. They are GREAT DOGS.....

My girlfriend and I were looking to accompany our new apartment with a dog, and we found Belle, a 5 year old (then named Kelsey) cavalier at a petco adoption drive. Her fur was heavily matted and her temperment was incredibly submissive. We came to learn that she was kept in a cage for her first five years at a puppy mill and was bred 7+ times during her time there. She was/is terrified of children and strangers.

Since her adoption 6 months ago, she has changed dramatically. She does not give kisses, but will let you pet her chin and chest for hours. She loves to be NEXT to you, not ON you, something that must have developed in her time at the mill.

She is incredibly lovely though, she loves to sleep between us in bed, though often has to get out because she gets too hot.

She does not like to be left alone. Today I left for 5 minutes and came back to hear her howling softly but pathetically.

She has some potty training issues, she knows to hold it when we are gone (her best is 7 hours) but, seemingly out of spite, will pee in our bedroom if we forget to take her out for too long.

In the end, I would suggest a cavalier to anyone. Belle is the greatest dog I've ever owned and couldn't imagine living without her.

I really enjoyed this article! I especially loved the part about timing how long the licking/kissing can go on! Our Cavie has been known to give 100+ kisses at a time, and We love every last one of them!

To find a responsible, ethical breeder in the Northeast Region, go to this Cavalier Club generated website, read the documents on the left and scroll down and call the breeders listed who have puppies available now or soon. THere does not seem to be too many available puppies from good breeders so the list is not long.

I have always had bad luck with small dogs-- finding them difficult to train & so I had golden retrievers with great luck in training. I got a female cavalier from a family breeder (not pet shop) and this little cavalier is so smart! She is 100% lap dog with me but can play and chase with my 11 year old son like a large breed dog. She is 11 months old and she sits, speaks, high fives, rolls over, and lies down on command. When my golden has a treat or a bone that she wants -- she will sit in front of him doing her tricks to try to impress him enough to give her the treat. She is very motivated by food- although she is smaller than many cavs- only about 10 pounds. She loves other dogs and kids but tends to be very vocal when excited. She also is trained to hit a set of bells hanging by Xmas ribbon from the door knob at her level when she wants the door opened to go outside. She learned that all on her own just from hearing it ring each time the door is opened. She just walks up to it and swats it with her paw. She is super smart! Loves to ride in the car and sleeps in the bed. She also jumps into the bath tub and paws at the faucet when she wants a drink. I absolutely love this breed... It's true that they are smart and I highly recommend getting one! Agree on not buying from pet store. Once they are at the pet store and not taken outside to potty anymore they learn to potty in their cage or bed- not good! Plus pet stores are about making $$ and not about the pets. Buy from a family who bred their family pet (My #1 choice) or from a reputable breeder (expect to pay more but get a show quality dog if that's what you're into). This is a great breed!!!

I just got a cavalier this past Summer, totally by accident as I have 3 poms already, I have to say that I'm totally in love, his temperament is unbelievable, so easy going and smart, so dedicated to the family, snores a little, just so funny. Wish I could own more of them, too bad the vets are so expensive or I would.

I loved the article thanks. It helped me learn a lot about these cute dogs. I have always wanted a lap dog but had no clue what breed would even like such a thing. I had a cocker as a child and she was a wiggle dog who never sat still long. My man loves this breed and we hope to have maybe 2 down the road. Thanks again

Everyone just needs to call breeders and not buy a Cavalier from a PET SHOP. No matter what a pet shop says, "We only get our puppies from breeders..." that's a lie. "Breeders" would be kicked out of Cavalier clubs if they sold to pet shops. Buyer beware!

We live in 2 bedroom apartment in the Seattle with our 6 month old Cavalier. It has been a true joy to have him... a gerat all around companion. One funny thing we noticed is you get a lot of attention from people and strangley enough they all say "that's the dog I want." I encoruage them to go get one .... just not his one :-)
