    Default puppy like

    Hey there,
    we are a total dog family

    my grandma has a shelti cross
    my Aunt has a Lab cross
    My cousin has this little white thing..i don't know waht it is.
    and we have a cavalier

    I have noticed out of all the dogs, Oliver is one who still acts like a puppy..hes five.

    Are most cavaliers like this?
    I mean ruby, my aunts dog, is maybe 3 and is way more mature and calm..
    is it just a cavalier trait or is oliver just nuts?

    I think Cavs are just so happy-go-lucky - their disposition keeps them so enthusiatic about life that they seem like perennial puppies.

    BTW Oliver has a fantastic face

    I think it depends on the dog. Both of mine at 3 and 4 are pretty laid back. I just fostered a 5 year old who had the energy of a puppy. He sure livened up our household

    My 7 1/2 yr old is pretty laid back but, when we puppysat the other week he turned into a giant puppy LOL He played all day long and hardly left the puppy's side.

    My 3 yr old on the other hand is just crazy and makes me wish I had his energy. When the puppy was here he sulked all day long and wouldn't play at all but kept giving me the filthiest of looks

    I guess this would depend on your definition of puppy? I dont think of puppy as playful but rather seeking trouble - a little mischief maker. My lab was and I was told it was true to the breed to take till 2 or 3 to mature like most dogs do a 1yr or 18mths.

    But a cavalier (the ones I have met) are not like that at all. Cavaliers do like to play but they mature to know when to settle when told. A lab is puppy like in that it takes longer to stop finding ways to amuse ones self that is not causing trouble - just like a puppy.
