Charles Spaniel puppy.
Teach him proper etiquette from
the day you bring him home. Be
gentle and patient when your puppy
is small, and don't expect

matter how poorly trained your dog
has been up to now, you can make a
difference in the future by giving
your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
patient, consistent messages about
how you want him to behave.
- If your
dog misbehaves on a regular basis,
take a good look in the mirror
because most behavior problems are
the result of a pet owner giving
their dog an unintended message, or
a mixed signal. Consider what
behavior of your dog you are really
rewarding and whether you are
consistently teaching your pet what
you want him to know. Sometimes the
best way to disfuse bad behavior is
to ignore it, as oftentimes your pet
is misbehaving just to get your
attention - even if it means you're
screaming at him! Try ignoring your
pet's antics and only give him
your attention when he shows
the desired behavior.
