English Toy Spaniels tend to be happy, affectionate little dogs with a pleasant demeanor towards everyone in the family. They prefer to be with their families, detest being left alone, and when well socialized they love an adventure. These dogs are generally quiet, and they are small enough to be fairly easy to transport from one place to another, making them good traveling companions for both short and long trips, which they will typically be quite happy to join you on. This is a brachycephalic breed, however, and they do require a little bit of thought and foresight to keep them healthy when taking them on an excursion and traveling safely with animals can sometimes be an expensive proposition.
The English Toy Spaniel was developed as a companion animal, and they desire to be with their families as often as possible. Unfortunately, being together is not always possible as most pet parents have obligations outside of the home that aren’t always dog-friendly, and these little dogs are prone to separation anxiety which often leads them to exhibit destructive behaviors. For some people, enrolling their dog in a doggie daycare is a great solution, allowing the dog to have the social interaction that they crave in a controlled and enjoyable environment while their humans are getting things done. While there can be a significant cost, depending on how often your pet needs to visit the daycare, it is often worth the cost to ensure that both your dog and your belongings are safe and sound.
English Toy Spaniels have been the subject of paintings and photographs for hundreds of years. Many paintings from seventeenth-century England showcase these little dogs, often in the laps of royal and noble ladies or in the arms of their children, and it’s easy to see why. Their faces look endearingly baby-like with their rounded heads, flat faces, and big, liquid eyes, and their coats are long and silky adding an elegance to their appearance. They enjoy showing off for their family, and while they are generally calm, they don’t mind playing the clown once in a while and will generally enjoy the experience of having their picture done. Whether you choose to do the photo shoot on your own or hire a professional will determine the cost of the fun.
