Cavalier Dry Nose
Cavalier dry nose is a common problem for many Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. The soft, beautiful expresiions of the Cavalier is marred by a dry, cracked nose. NOSE BUTTER is handcrafted (by me) from of organic shea butter, organic castor oil, organic olive oil, organic avocado oil, organic almond oil, organic coconut oil, organic beeswax, organic cocoa seed butter, a dash of essential oils and a LOT of LOVE is the answer. Cavalier dry nose does not have a chance!
For all the info on how to apply NOSE BUTTER®, tips, hints and tricks see the TABS above. Fast FAQs – Dab a bit on your Cavalier’s nose 2-3z a day for the first 1-3 days, then as needed for maintenance (usually 1-2x a week).

Cavalier King Charles Spaniel History
Small spaniels were used to flush and hunt birds in Great Britain as early as 1016, according to the scant records from this time. These small spaniels left their hunting days behind them to become the preferred companion of the rich and royal. Many little spaniel type dogs were seen in 16th, 17th, and 18th century paintings of royalty and life at court. Artists who painted the Royal Spaniels included Titian, Van Dyck, Lely, Stubbs, Gainsborough, Reynolds, and Romney.
Both King Charles I and King Charles II (during the 1600s) were smitten with the little spaniels and as you probably figured out by now, they were named for King Charles II. They were crossed with Pugs and the Japanese Chin during the Victorian Era and became what we call the English Toy Spaniel, the King Charles Spaniel or (“Charlie”) in the United Kingdom. My own little Gio is an English Toy Spaniel.
The English Toy/Charlie type was greatly preferred at this time and almost led to the extinction of the original, longer faced, flatter skulled Cavalier. In the 1920s Roswell Eldridge, a fancier here in the United States, fell in love with the look of the original type of Cavalier. He offered prize money to exhibitors at Crufts dog show in England who may still have the “Blenheim Spaniels of the Old World type.” As is often the case, the idea of cold, hard cash generated excitement and many breeders began working to regain the original type of King Charles Spaniel. The result of these efforts created the base of the gene pool for the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel of today. Now the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is much more popular than its once “Belle of the Ball”cousin, the English Toy.
