Why Breed Cavalier Crosses?

Welcome to Comfort Cavs where we raise healthy, happy, beautiful puppies with the skills to be successful as therapy dogs, as emotional support animals, and as much loved family companions.

I love all dogs, but I really love Cavaliers. The health issues that affect the cavalier, due to a closed gene pool, make it impossible to breed healthy cavalier puppies. That is why I have chosen to breed Cavalier crosses. By breeding a Cavalier to other healthier companion breeds, I can create healthy, stable companion dogs with as close to the cavalier temperament as possible.

If you have one of these incredible dogs, you already know why I am obsessed. If you don't, I hope you will learn more about them here. My goal is to provide information and resources to those interested in these awesome dogs and to help others better decide if this might be the right breed for their family.


The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel was originally bred to be a comfort and companion dog.  Called Comforter Spaniels in the 1700's, Cavaliers served as lap and bed warmers.


I raise our puppies with knowledge of the newest science based research, incorporating Early Neural Stimulation, Early Scent Introduction, and what we have learned through Puppy Culture™, Avidogs, and Guide Dogs for the Blind, ensuring that all of our puppies are equipped with the skills they need to be stable adult dogs.


All of our dogs live in our home and are a part of our family, where they are treated with the utmost love and care. With our dogs, we enjoy everything from therapy work to long walks on the beach to sometimes just cuddling on the sofa with them. Our dogs travel with us, swim with us, play fetch with us, perform tricks with us, dance with us, and so much more!


All of our breeding dogs are fully DNA using the Embark Panel, which includes tests for the common genes for DM, Curly Coat, Dry Eye, & Episodic Falling. All breeding dogs are OFA screened yearly for heart and eyes, and patella and hip clearances are done at 24 months. 


 Liz is a professional dog trainer,  with expertise in animal assisted therapy, and early puppy development, focusing her energy toward breeding and raising Cavalier King Charles Spaniels crosses to do what they were meant to do: provide comfort to those in need. As you can see, Liz also enjoys doing fun sports with her dogs. Here she is with Jazzy in their latest Musical Freestyle competition.
