I really want a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. However, I need to know a). How much all of the basic dog care equipment costs and b). How much it would cost per week to feed. If I know this, I may be able to convince my mum to get me one. I already know approximately how much it would cost to buy the dog so please don’t include that in your answer.
We have a Cavalier, and he’s been relatively affordable. You do need to keep in mind vet checks, monthly heartworm and flea prevention, and grooming (if necessary).
The basic equipment you may need:
*crate – they are small dogs, so a smaller crate would be fine – $50-75
*bed/pillow – $25-50
*food and water bowls – $20
*toys – $20
*leash and collar – $30
*brush/comb – $5
Our Cavalier is on the smaller side, and only eats 1 cup of food per day. So a small bag of food (8lbs) costs us about $15 and lasts us a month. But it depends on the type of food you feed, and how much your Cavalier eats.
