The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, affectionately known as the Cavie or CKCS, is renowned among small dog breeds for its regal appearance and affectionate nature. Hailing from the United Kingdom, these spaniels feature a compact size, silky coat, and expressive almond-shaped eyes. Cavaliers come in a variety of color patterns: Blenheim (chestnut and white), Tricolor (black, white, and tan), Black and Tan, and Ruby. Their medium-length, occasionally wavy coat necessitates regular grooming to retain its glossy appeal. Primarily lapdogs, Cavaliers thrive on companionship, bringing warmth and loyalty to any household. Intelligent and highly trainable, they are ideal for families, coexisting peacefully with children and other pets.
