Mr. Grumpy, one of the latest puppies to join the family at Puppy Love Franklin square, is a 10 week old, male, English Toy Spaniel. He is one of many new puppies looking for a family to take him home.
The English Toy Spaniel (ETS) is a wonderful little dog, with a beautiful silky coat. The ETS is a sturdy and very affection addition to your family.
Height: about 10 inches
Weight: 9 – 12 pounds
The toy spaniel (aka King Charles) is truly an affectionate dog by nature. He is naturally well behaved and quiet. They love to cuddle you and sit on your lap. All have their preferred loved ones. They are devoted to their owners, and fiercely protective of them and their space but they are not mean dogs and due to their quiet nature do not make good guard dogs.
Because they are quiet and enjoy alone time, English Toy Spaniels make great apartment dogs. They are lazy by nature and only need only a daily walk to stay healthy and content. They can become overwhelmed in chaotic households, especially ones with young, unsupervised children.
Play will take care of a lot of their exercise needs, however, as with all breeds, play will not fulfill their primal instinct to walk. Dogs that do not get to go on daily walks are more likely to display a wide array of behavior problems.
The should be brushed once or twice a week and groomed by a professional once a month. Their fast-growing nails must be trimmed regularly to avoid overgrowth and cracking. Their pendulous ears should be checked regularly to avoid a buildup of wax and debris which can result in an infection.
An ETS is naturally well behaved and are good listeners, so they pose few training problems. At times, they can be willful, and housetraining can be a challenge. English Toys enjoy eating, so training them with a combination of tasty rewards and consistent positive reinforcement works best. These are generally intelligent animals. English Toy Spaniels do not respond well to physical punishment, loud voices or other forms of negative reinforcement
