In our home, it is rare to find and empty lap – they are almost always filled with a cavalier or five! Cole, my son, and I live in the Phoenix area with our cavaliers. We find the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel to be an ideal dog for our household. Known as the “comfort spaniel,” they are lap dogs who are smart, love people and are eager to please, but sturdy enough to engage in play. Like most spaniels, they display sporting characteristics and love to get and about. Many are quite playful and others prefer to be couch potatoes. They are generally great with young children and wonderful companions for most people, including the elderly or disabled.

In 2012, we earned our Breeder of Merit – the only Cavalier breeder in Arizona to do so with conformation/show dogs and currently showing and breeding. I welcome an opportunity to answer any questions you may have about the breed and my dogs. My desire is to help good people find great dogs/puppies through knowledge and education thereby preventing them from supporting the sub-standard breeding environments. I want you to enjoy a lifetime of happiness with your puppy – not one filled with frequent, costly vet visits and behaviors that are not typical of a well-bred Cavalier. The “convenient, sometimes cheaper and well-marketed” options may seem appealing at first, but making a good choice now can prevent a future of heartache and expenses. Please! Take the time now to find a good puppy from a reputable source.
