Based on your choices, I would recommend the Cavalier. We got one from a
breeder 5 weeks ago and we love her. We have four children ages 9, 7, 4
2. Papillons are too delicate for children (what several Papillon
told me when I was researching). Corgis are herding dogs and may attempt
herd your son by nipping at his heels. Cocker Spaniels are over bred and
have lots of different health problems. I did all the research you are
doing now over the past year.
Definitely go to a breeder. Pet stores support puppy mills and you will
probably get a sick dog. I doubt you'll find a Cavalier in a pound. You
may find a rescue dog.
The going rate for these puppies is $1500 - 3000 depending on the breeder.
Ours is a puppy. She is great. She has lots of energy but also takes
of long naps. Since the day we brought her home, she sleeps through the
night (10 pm to 6:30 am) in a crate next to our bed. With this breed,
or female doesn't matter. They are lapdogs.
Good luck to you!
Going to a good breeder
who follows the MVD protocol (sire and dam at least 2 years old and heart
clear, and all four grandparents age 5 and heart clear) then you have a
chance of having your dog develop the problem later, but, currently **THERE
NO MVD -FREE lines**, and don't let anyone tell you any differently.
Forgot one important point-- a regular vet cannot detect early MVD. Letters
from a regular vet are useless in determining whether or not the parents and
grandparents are heart clear. If you don't have certification from a
cardiologist, you likely do not have accurate information.
