The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, a European court favorite from as early as the 15th century, is often referred to as the “comforter spaniel” because of its sweet, loving nature. Cavaliers are bred to be companions and their favorite place to be is with their family either on a lap or by their side. Cavaliers are depicted in the paintings of Gainsborough, Landseer, Van Dyck and others, usually always with their family members. This lovely small spaniel is not only pretty to look at; he is also intelligent, eager to please and learn and does well in obedience and agility.
