The Cavalier King Charles spaniel is known to be affectionate and extroverted. It is an intelligent breed that is easily trainable and is also good with other pets, including non-canines. Due to its lively, inquisitive nature, the Cavalier King Charles spaniel needs adequate attention and is not suited for kennels.

The Cavalier King Charles spaniel is a small breed, typically reaching 12 to 13 inches in height and weighing no more than 18 pounds. Due to its size and temperament, this dog does well in apartments, as long as it has enough room to play. Daily walks are recommended; otherwise, the breed is prone to behavior issues.
