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.

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Small
  • Trainability Responsive

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 York?

New York is a hugely diverse state, with New York City providing a contrast to more rural and suburban communities upstate. With this diversity comes a real range of standards for puppy and dog care. 


A study by Pawsafe ranks New York as the 32nd most pet-friendly state in the country. According to Safewise, New York has the third-highest percentage of pet-friendly rentals, behind Florida and Washington. An estimated 44% of all rentals are pet-friendly. However, only 27% of New York residents own a dog. This is a solid amount below the 40% average among all U.S. households. 


Are cities in New York dog-friendly?

A study by WalletHub ranks the top 100 U.S. cities for how pet-friendly they are. The study looks at metrics like pet care provider costs, walkability, the number of pet-friendly apartments, veterinary care costs, and animal welfare laws.

Buffalo

Buffalo and New York City just make it on the list as the country’s 86th and 90th most pet-friendly cities.

The city of Buffalo also has a healthy amount of dog-friendly parks. According to the TPL, the city has the 58th most dog parks per capita with 0.8 parks per 100 residents. There are plenty of off-leash parks and features for your dog to enjoy. 

New York City pups

While it can be a challenge to raise a big dog in a little NYC apartment, the city does have some amazing perks for pet lovers.

Research from the Trust for Public Land (TPL) shows that New York City has the 27th highest number of dog parks per capita, with 1.7 dog parks per 100,000 residents. Many of these parks allow dogs to run off-leash between 9 p.m. and 9 a.m. 


There are 28 off-leash dog runs in Manhattan alone. Many are separated into areas for small and large dogs and some have water features to keep your pet cool. You can use your early morning walks to find some new friends for you and your pup.

According to NYC Dog Data, the top dogs in the city are:

  • Shih Tzu

  • Chihuahua

  • Labrador Retriever

  • American Pit Bull


Of the various neighborhoods in New York City, Manhattan has the highest concentration of dogs, with an estimated 119,340 pups. After that, Brooklyn is the most populated district with over 88,742 doggos.


The city also has excellent services for dog walkers, pet care, vets, and more.

Animal welfare & dog shelters in New York

New York does a decent job when it comes to the treatment of animals at shelters. But there are some areas where the state can improve. Of the 80,855 dogs and cats that entered New York shelters in 2020, they only saved 85.6%. The “no-kill” state benchmark is a 90% save rate. We hope to see New York push for getting more pets in loving homes.
