Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Colors and Coats

Cavalier King Charles Spaniel colors make these dogs arguably the most beautiful of man’s best friends!
Cavalier King Charles
                                      Spaniels come in four colors:
                                      Blenheim, Ruby, Tricolor and Black
                                      and Tan.
These charming dogs come in four Cavalier King Charles color combinations.  It's difficult to decide on your favorite Cavalier color!

The coats of Cavalier King Charles puppies may at first seem quite short, but in time, they will grow long, luxurious ears, silky feathers from their legs, a lovely plumed tail, and an Elizabethan ruff of fur under their chins.

The coat of a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is never trimmed (though it is acceptable to trim the bottom of the footpads). Cavalier tails are never docked, as is sometimes done in other breeds.
To keep your Cavalier's coat as silky and beautiful as it deserves to be, grooming your dog several times a week is recommended. Regular brushing keeps snarls and matting under control and helps to distribute the natural oils through your puppy's skin for a healthy shine. In the spring and fall, when shedding can be an issue, a daily brushing will also help keep shedding to a minimum.

Tricolor Cavaliers

Tricolors have tan markings over the eyes, on the cheeks and beneath the tail. This color combination is the most unusual and often carries the highest price tag.

A word of caution...

A word of caution in choosing your first Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppy. Don’t be fooled into thinking your Cavalier Spaniel puppy’s coat will stay exactly the same as he grows. Like many other breeds, Cavalier King Charles puppies grow into their colors.

If you pick out a Blenheim Cavalier puppy because you love the look of his all-white muzzle, it’s a sure bet that your little companion will grow in some chestnut “freckles” to surprise you!

But after all, isn't watching your puppy grow into his adult coat really half the fun?
