These small Spaniels started showing up in paintings way back when, but it wasn’t until 17th century England where they became very popular among ladies at court. It was when King Charles II began owning them, that their popularity reached new heights among aristocrats. However, no standards existed, so the puppies often varied in size and type.

Breeders in the mid 1800s began changing the dogs’ characteristics, and it became harder to find the sweet-faced Spaniels shown in paintings. In the 1920’s, a new generation of dog lovers dedicated themselves to preserving the original traits of Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppies through ethical breeding programs.

Like many other European canines, these puppies had a hard time during World War II and were almost extinct by 1945. However, dedicated breeders located just six dogs and began rebuilding the breed’s population.

Today, the Cavaliers have fully rebounded and become a favorite household pet. They were officially recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1995 as a part of the Toy Group.

You should brush your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppy’s coat daily to prevent matting and tangles.
