Cavalier King Charles Spaniel


Casey and a Tri-color Pup from Frederika Kennels

The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is born to please.  Spirited and affectionate they are a good pet for the apartment dweller or a less active owner.  They are good with children but do not like rough or inappropriate treatment.  They do not like hot climates.  Regular grooming is necessary, especially around the ears.  Exercise to conform to your abilities, but they enjoy being able to run (in a controlled situation).

We STRONGLY recommend that you get your dog from a respectable breeder or rescue organization.  Pet store puppies may get their dogs from Puppy Mills that normally breed only for profit, not quality or concern for the puppy or its eventual owner
.If you would like help locating a breeder or rescue agency near you please E-Mail PGAA (, and let us know your city/state and the type of dog you are looking for.  Do not assume that PGAA has qualified all of the breeders or rescues on this site.  Do your own check of each breeder or rescue — be sure that you are comfortable with the organization before you buy, adopt or turn-over a dog.
