Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Breed Information:
For many centuries, small breeds of spaniels have been popular in the United Kingdom. Some centuries later, Toy Spaniels became popular as pets, especially as pets of the royal family. In fact, the King Charles Spaniel was so named because a Blenheim-coated spaniel was the children's pet in the household of Charles I. King Charles II went so far as to issue a decree that the King Charles Spaniel could not be forbidden entrance into any public place, including the Houses of Parliament. Such spaniels can be seen in many paintings of the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries. These early spaniels had longer, pointier snouts and thinner-boned limbs than today's. Over time, the King Charles Spaniel was bred with short-snouted, dome-headed dogs of Asian descent, such as the Pug and Japanese Chin. The King Charles Spaniel remained popular at Blenheim Palace, home to the Dukes of Marlborough, where the brown and white version was the most popular, resulting in the name Blenheim for that color combination. In the 1920s, an American named Roswell Eldrige offered twenty-five pounds as a prize for any King Charles Spaniel of the old-fashioned type, with a longer nose, flat skull, and a spot in the middle of the crown of the head. So, the breed was developed by selective breeding of short-snouted Spaniels. The result was a dog that resembled the childhood pet of the future Charles II of England ("Cavalier King Charles"), hence the name of the breed. The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is eager, affectionate, and playful. They are lively, outgoing, and they constantly aim to please. They are very intelligent, responsive to commands, and they are usually easy to train. They are naturally well behaved and almost always get along well with other pets and animals. They sometimes possess a chasing instinct and shouldn’t be left off a leash out in the open. They make excellent companions and they perform well in competitive obedience. They have a great sense of smell and sight, and they can be utilized in short hunts over open country.
