Get to know the Continental Toy Spaniel
All you need to know about the breed
Continental Toy Spaniels may be a small breed but don’t underestimate them. As well as being cute and fluffy, they are also active and curious, seeming to take their responsibilities as family dog seriously: They’re always on the alert (they make good pint-sized guard dogs), willing to learn and ready for a game with their humans.
However, it must be said that their looks are quite simply lovely — those butterfly-like fringed ears, the inquisitive expression and the delicate frame make for a truly harmonious whole. Their personalities are charming too—Continental Toy Spaniels are friendly, playful and affectionate with their families as well as being versatile: Other pets or apartment living shouldn’t faze them.
Once trained, they get on well with children, as long as the children can be trusted to be gentle with a breed that – because of its small size – could be vulnerable to accidental injuries.
Continental Toy Spaniels have been bred as companions to humans for hundreds of years, so it’s no surprise that what suits them best is being at the heart of the family, involved in what’s going on.
