The Total Home Care for a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Tippy & Alfred

The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel breed is vulnerable to
several diseases including: back problems, dislocating
kneecaps (patella), ear infections, early onset of deafness
or hearing trouble, heart problems, hereditary eye disease,
and sometimes hip dysplasia and syringomyelia.

These dogs are chow hounds and have a problem with weight
gain. Do not overfeed these dogs. Some of the breeding lines
are prone to serious heart problems. Be sure before you buy
a puppy from a breeder that you check the medical history of
the line back several generations.

Cavalier King Charles Spaniel dogs love to chase so they should
never be left off the leash. They also are reckless with
their own health and safety and will chase something into
the road and be possibly hit by a car. Only let this dog off
the leash if you are in a safe enclosed area.

This breed does have a problem with developing small dog
syndrome if spoiled. These dogs will start displaying bad
behaviors that are not even within their normal temperament
if allowed to think they are the leaders of the household.

This breed needs to be socialized well from an early age and
hand-reared to allow them to feel secure when they are
older. This avoids shyness with strangers.

The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Loves to Walk! They are an
active breed and love to be outdoors. They will require a
long daily walk to take care of their physical and
psychological needs. Playing with this dog will take care of
the rest of its physical exercise needs.

These dogs do great in an apartment and are active indoors.
They do enjoy a small yard to go outside and play in. This
dog doesn't do well in warm climates as it has long hair and
a short face.

Who wouldn't fall in love with the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel?

You just have to love those big, innocent eyes and 
that loving personality.

Be careful to keep the hanging ears clean, and clean

A high quality protein and fat food plus the addition
of a vegetable enzyme will keep that beautiful coat healthy.

If your little Cavalier's energy becomes too much
to bear, increase exercise, free feed, and give
him chamomile tea with honey, warm milk, and a biscuit.
