Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Characteristics
Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are purebreds that display the best of two worlds, combining the gentle affection of a typical toy breed with the energy and athletic nature of a sporting spaniel.
Cavaliers are very social purebreds and can get along nicely with children and other dogs. Most Cavaliers can do equally well with active owners and homebodies. They can be energetic, athletic partners or relaxed couch potatoes, depending on the owner's lifestyle.
Cavaliers are descended from the same toy spaniels depicted in many 16th, 17th, and 18th-century paintings by famous artists such as Van Dyck and Gainsborough. This particular type of spaniel was bred and named after Charles I and Charles II, the respective grandson and great-grandson of Mary, Queen of Scots.
They grow to a height of around 12-13 inches and typically weigh between 13-18 pounds. Like most small dogs, they enjoy a nice long lifespan of anywhere between 12-15 years. Cavaliers are companion dogs with dependent personalities, so they’re keen to follow their owner from room to room or tag along on that road trip to the grocery store.
When it comes to training, Cavaliers are generally intelligent and willing to try whatever it is you'd like them to do. However, Cavaliers can have issues with housetraining, which is a common trait among many toy breeds. Food rewards and positive reinforcement help ensure that any type of training goes smoothly.
Their size and generally quiet nature make Cavaliers a good choice for apartment living. They're only moderately active indoors so a small yard or frequent walks will fit their activity needs. Cavaliers shed their coats in spring and fall, so a thorough brushing routine will ensure the house stays relatively hair-free.
How dog-friendly is New Hampshire?
Different studies rank New Hampshire quite differently. Depending on what part of the state you live in, you may have different levels of access to pet services, accommodations, etc.
In a study by Pawsafe, New Hampshire ranked incredibly well as the 5th most pet-friendly state. They scored New Hampshire particularly well for their animal welfare laws, like harsh penalties for abuse and neglect, and high pet care standards.
Another study by the animal safety site Safewise didn’t give such shining reviews, though. In their study, New Hampshire ranks as the 40th most pet-friendly state.
Though the two studies produced wildly different results, if we combine the two scores New Hampshire ranks somewhere in the middle of the pack of pet-friendly states. Not the best, but not the worst!
