story The history of the breed

It was from Asia that the dogs of the spaniel type were first brought to Europe. This favorably affected the generation of that species. Then the popularity of the spaniel faded because of the love of King William III of Orange to the pugs.
Due to the fact that pugs have become more popular, Cavalier King Charles has changed a lot: now they have a characteristic flat face and long ears.
The initial appearance of the breed was revived by a group of Stakhanovists. The official date of registration: 1945

maintenance Principles of nutrition, maintenance, education

1. Power.

First of all, you need to decide on the diet:

 Mixed type
 Dry food + natural products
 Dry food

The main principle in the selection of dry food is the emphasis on the producers, who are famous for the highest quality. Feed must be balanced and natural.
Products of natural origin, in turn, should include meat (only low-fat species), fish, cleared of bones, egg yolks, cereals.

When choosing a mixed type of food, it is important to remember that dry food should not be mixed with natural products - these should be different meals.

2. Content.

The best option for keeping dogs of this breed is a well heated room (they are sensitive to temperature changes) and regular (about 2-3 times a day) active walks.

It is necessary to bathe as it is polluted, but since they are great lovers to rock in the first puddle, you may have to do this quite often.

You should carefully care for the silky hair of the spaniel: you need to comb it every day to avoid the formation of tangles.

Also, care requires ears that need to be cleaned, claws that are recommended to be trimmed as they grow, and teeth.

3. Education.

The Cavalier king charles spaniel lends itself easily to learning, as it is characterized by a high level of acumen and learning.

Spaniels themselves are very active and cheerful, which is why training should be carried out in a playful form. But you should always be on the alert: since the Cavalier King-Charles Spaniel is a hunting dog, during games on the street, there are cases when pets could chase any bird and never return.

Start training should start as early as possible.
