Your adorable toy sized King Pin is a mix between the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and the Miniature Pinscher. Being a little mixed baby, they take their parents’ traits both good and bad to make up a new breed, unique, adorable, and above all, cuddly! This small doggo is perfect for the home of any size, but they do need their mental and physical stimulation to be happy and to stay healthy. Let’s get started!
The King Pin is surprisingly easy to maintain, believe it or not. These dogs do not shed as often as other dog breeds, probably due to their Miniature Pinscher side. They also have short fur, which results in easier maintenance, and less headache for you. However, you do need to groom your pupper once in a while to keep them looking fresh and clean, just like that Outkast song says. One thing to keep in mind when it comes to grooming is your King Pin's ears. They need to stay dry and clean because they are folded, and moisture can lead to bacteria growth.
Since the King Pin is a hybrid, that means that they inherit their parents’ activity levels. The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is a moderately active pup, and the Miniature Pinscher is an activity machine, so that means that the King Pin will also be a relatively active pupper. One thing to keep in mind is that your King Pin is quite small, which means that they can get cold fast, so in rainy or cold weather, opt to go to the indoor dog center or playground to provide some fun and exercise.
When the rain is falling, and the outside world just is not acceptable to you and your little munchkin, you can still have loads of fun inside! Your pupper requires activity to stay happy, and if you do not provide it, they can ransack the apartment just to keep themselves entertained. Gather their toys, some treats, maybe re-arrange your pillows and furniture to make tunnels and obstacles and let your hair down! Just be careful not to break anything and to not hurt yourselves in the process!
A great way to keep your doggo occupied and entertained is to purchase an interactive dog feeder. These puzzles are amazing, and they will provide loads of fun.
Since your pup is small, you can take them shopping with you! Go to a pet store and try on new outfits, taste new treats, and get all the goodies you need.
As you can see, entertaining and keeping your King Pin active is not hard at all! This doggo is easy to work with, and they are super convenient to take wherever you go. They are small, cute, and most of all, little rays of sunshine that light up your life. Love them, tell them that they are good doggos every day, and bestow a lot of care and attention on them.
