    The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is a beloved puppy-like dog that was originally bred to be a lap dog and they are great at it.

    These pups would sit joyfully on the couch while you watch TV or read a book. They are also affectionate, adaptable, and do best when snuggled up next to their owners.

    This breed generally weighs up to 18 pounds and is easy to train and handle. The Cavalier requires some grooming essentials, such as ear cleaning, regular hair brushing, and probably an occasional trip to the groomer.

    Cavaliers are a great choice if you love small snuggle pet companions.
