Cavalier King Charles dogs come in four distinctive colors. Even with four different colored coats, it is still a challenge on picking a favorite. They are all just so adorable! Whether it is a Cavalier King Charles Blenheim, Calvalier King Charles Black and Tan, Calvalier King Charles Ruby, or Cavalier King Charles Tri-Color, the coats of these beautiful dogs will mature and produce fluffy, luxurious ears, a lovely plumed tail, and Elizabethan scruff under their chins.
In order to keep your Cavalier’s coat as silky and dazzling as it can be, it is critical to brush and groom your dog several times a week. Regular brushing keeps snarls and matting under control and helps to distribute the natural oils through your puppy’s skin for a healthy shine.
Black and Tan Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
Black and Tan Cavalier Spaniels coats are just what you might expect, they are black and tan! The coat is predominantly black and features tan highlights which are most notable on the eyebrows, cheeks, chest, legs, and underneath the tail.
Blenheim Cavalier King Charles
A Blenheim Cavalier features a white background and chestnut markings, and receive the name Blenheim out of tribute to Blenheim Palace where the Duke of Marlborough used to raise this very popular breed.
Ruby Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
A Ruby Cavalier is intended to be entirely chestnut in color but it is common for them to feature some white in their coats. A little white in the coat is obviously not in important in a companion Cavalier, but if is a dog for showing, a 100% chestnut colored-coat is essential.
Tri Color Cavalier King Charles
Tri color Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are a wonderful mixture of white, tan and black. The ears and area surrounding the eyes will be black, separated by a splash of white.
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.
