Exercise & Your Cavalier

Cute Cavalier Spaniel holding a sign says "Life is short, Play with your dog"Cavalier King Charles Spaniels may be a small breed, but they are active dogs who need regular exercise to be happy and healthy.  Even if you don’t have a large back yard or a public dog park near your home, your Cavalier’s exercise needs are easily met with daily walks on a leash, and some at-home play time.

If you like hiking, your Cavalier can be a great companion!  Build up your dog’s stamina gradually over a period of time, and he’ll do fine.

When you’re exercising your Cavalier away from home, be sure to keep your buddy on a leash, or if you’re enjoying a fenced dog park, a collar with ID tags.  Bring water with you, especially in warm weather, to avoid heat stroke.

Here are some further tips for exercising your Cavalier in colder weather.
