Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Grooming: The Essential Guide

If the spaniels are built for royalty, that means the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is king. This regal toy spaniel dates back to the Renaissance, where King Charles I and his son Charles II were particularly fond of the breed. Eventually, the cavalier was dubbed after their namesake. Well into the 19th century, cavaliers were a favorite among British aristocrats, and they bred different varieties of this special toy breed.

Known for their distinctive coloring, the cavalier has four main color patterns: Tricolor (with black markings on white) Blenheim (chestnut markings on white) black and tan, and ruby (a deep orangy-red.) Historically, these colors signify what royal family your particular cavalier may have come from.
