As one of the biggest toy breeds, the King Charles has a gentle personality, and loves nothing more than a good belly rub. Because they are prone to weight gain and need extra support for their cardiac health, the ROYAL CANIN® Cavalier King Charles food has been specially designed just for them.

Temperament

The charming expression of the Cavalier King Charles is the perfect advertisement for their warm, loving nature. They are incredibly dependent so love nothing more than being surrounded by company and plenty of familial affection, which makes them a great dog for young families.

Weight

Cavalier King Charles is one of the biggest toy breeds and can be prone to weight gain, especially if their gorgeous natures causes their owners to spoil them possibly more than they should. It’s important their weight is kept under control too, as it can affect their overall health. 

Muscles & Joints

The breed has been known to develop hip dysplasia as they mature. This can be caused by a mixture of genetics, environment and diet. It’s important then that the diet they are fed helps maintain and support their muscles and joints. 

Skin & Coat

Cavaliers have a silky and wavy medium length coat that loves to be groomed at least once a week. Keep an eye on their ears while you're giving them a brush, as the hair there is prone to tangling and can easily become matted.
