    Hi all, I am thinking about buying a dog as soon as the new tank is up and running and stable. I want a cavalier King Charles Spaniel ( i know some may not class this as a dog.. ) Does anyone on here know anything about them or even breed them, I will buy from a breeder but as it stands I wouldn't know waht problems to look out for?

    Cheers

    I have one, great dogs!! Very good with kids. Mine is the same age as my son, got him when he was three months old!!

    I think you have to watch out for problems with their eyes?

    Got mine from champion breeder.

    My 4 month old King Charles puppy Maggie is great with my little girls.

    She gets a biyt hyper-active when we take her for a walk because she thinks the cars are giant dogs.

    I have also heard they can get a problem with their eyes and also they can get a bit fat if you feed them too much.


    I think they are great little dogs.

    Most spaniels are reasonably good tempered, especially with kids.

    We have an English Springer and they are hypo loopy dogs which would be on the go for 25 hours a day if allowed. Great fun, excellent with kids (my wife&#39;s a childminder), obidient, loyal, gregarious and just a lovely dog....especially if you like long country walks by streams and lots of undergrowth.

    Cocker spaniels are very much a tamed down version of the springer. Still a good family pet but doesn&#39;t need the longer walks and is a bit calmer.

    King Charles are a toned down version of the cocker and again, make great family dogs.

    I might be looking for a companion for our springer soon and would considder another one...i&#39;d go for a bitch this time as they&#39;re not as head strong as a dog, or i&#39;d go for a cocker spaniel.

    Good luck and look forward to seeing the pictures

    Spaniels are fantastic. I&#39;d def get one from a breeder.....looka round and see the pup with its mother
    Rabbit (aka Mark Taylor)

    Better a pedant than a pederast

    Cheers all, Jevs, that is a beautiful dog you have, it almost made me want one, but one reason I want cav is that i dont think I would be able to commit to the longs walks that the springer would need. maybe in the future....

    Cheers again

    hey dave,
    i think that King Charles Cav&#39;s are one of the most beatuiful dogs and we (myself and the missus) plan to keep a Tricolour along with a Shar-Pei...

    They are great family dogs, and amazing companions... here is some more information on them http://www.cavaliers.co.uk/

    Pm me with pics if and when you get one,
    Bryan and Natalie...

    Cheers for the link, the wife still says i cant have a dog, but i will just go out with my daughter and buy one, it wont be just yet though, as i want to get my tank up and running fully, and a few other things are high on my priority list at present.

    When i get one I am planning to get a blenheim.

    Cheers all

    Dave
