Thee's a lot of variation in the breed. Cavalier breed standard is 12-18lbs in the UK/Ireland, but the ideal weight for any dog is a lean, fit weight, and that can vary hugely depending on the dog. For some cavaliers, 25lbs or more may be healthy and perfect. For others that would be overwight. For some cavaliers, 15lbs would be emaciated! For others, it's perfect. :)

Mine vary from 11-12lbs up to 17.

Sparky (male) is 15 months old, and 12.6 lbs. He seems a little on the lean side to me, though the vet didn't express any concern, and I'm hoping to get him up to 14 in the next little while. :)

Kokoda is 11 months old in a few days and his last trip to the vet he weighed 7.2kg. Not sure what that is in pounds.
He is a very fit cav, and quite muscley but we are often told by others that6 he is too skinny. Which he isn't at all...

As people have said weight varies a lot.

Mine are both Males. Lucky is taller and longer - he weighed 24 lbs at last vet visit, Sparky is smaller and weighed 21 lbs.

Both needed to lose weight so are on diets. Lucky's ideal weight is probably 21-22. He is a large Cavalier. Sparky should probably be 17-18. I noticed his middle was really filling in. Lucky's doing well on the diet though - his waist is getting a lot more defined. Sparky has fluffier fur so it's harder to tell, but he does still have a way to go.
