Cavalier King Charles Spaniel dogs have Spanish roots, as you can tell by the name. People bred small spaniels with various Oriental Toy breeds and the results were small Tudor lapdogs, refered to as “comfort” spaniels. The wealthy often used them as foot.
Toy Spaniels eventually became popular. During the 1700s it is said that King Charles II was so taken by his Toy Spaniels, eventually everyone associated the Toy Spaniel with King Charles himself, thus causing the dog to become officially known as "Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Dogs".
In time the look of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel dogs started to change. People started to prefer the look of the shorter-nosed Toy Spaniel. Later when an American named Roswell Elridge traveled to England and offered an enormous money prize for the best “pointed nosed” Spaniels, it sparked a huge interest back to the original look of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. This breed eventually became the most popular dog in England and was recognized by the AKC in 1996.
