I am one of the luckiest people in the world, because I get to do what I love. I truly love every aspect of bringing puppies into this world. Even before there is a pregnancy, I spend my time planning. I enjoy considering who would be a good match for who? What temperament would those puppies have? What would this match bring to the table? It is so enthralling to me. During my girl's pregnancy, I am busy getting ready for puppies, keeping my girl in shape, and reading the newest science based research on whelping, and raising puppies. Once we have puppies it is all go, go, go. 100% of my time, and energy is spent ensuring the puppies have everything they need to be the most they can be.
As a professional dog trainer with over 20 years of experience, I have the skills to effectively socialize puppies before they go to their new homes. My goal is to raise puppies who can comfortably walk into any environment, meet any person or other animal with a sweet, gentle, happy attitude, and provide comfort to those in need, all of which are the hallmark of the breed.
For my entire career I have had a passion for animal assisted therapy, early puppy development, and socialization. I fell in love with the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel because of their high sociability and sweet personalities. Cavaliers are natural comfort dogs.
As a responsible breeder of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and Cavalier Crosses, my goal is to further the advancement of this very special breed. Health, Temperament, and Form & Function with a focus on Socialization are my top priorities.
Due to the many serious health problems of the Cavalier, "intentional crosses" have been developed which bring owners the option to get some of the lovable Cavalier traits in a dog that sheds less and, if properly bred, have less health concerns. Of the intentional Cavalier crosses, the Cavoodle and Cavachon are our favorites. While some Cavalier enthusiasts disagree with any breeding of Cavaliers with other purebreds, we remind ourselves that today's CKCS were in fact a cross less than a hundred years ago.
