All our breeding age dogs are regularly heart and eye tested by specialists, and regularly certified as to their overall health by our veterinarians.

Our dogs are photographed in their natural state and habitat - they are not primped and positioned for these sessions


Miss Jacara


This little 'wasn't meant to be' beauty was all Jack's idea.  Breeder's don't want to admit their mistakes usually, but this little girl only arrived because our Jack decided not to wait for the young lady I had gone off to get for him, jumped over a rather high fence and by the time I returned had happily mated with our Zena (destined for Connor I might add).

Whether meant to be, this little girl certainly believes she had a right to be here with all the pluck of a giant, despite her small stature and a regality that is only fitting for a well-bred Cavalier - which she is, thankfully.

Add a good dose of absolute sweetness and you have the recipe for a captured heart for anyone who comes into contact with her.

Jastbah Cooloola Girl (Connie)

I can't look at this little cherub without firmly believing I'm looking at a reincarnation of our beloved Connor.  The likeness is stunning as you can see in the comparison photo.

She has her mother and father's sweet disposition and character and with her lovely markings, she is quite a stunner.

Cavalrite Kiss Me  Kate (Katie)

Daughter of our Reba and Duke, little Katie is practically a clone of her mummy, right down to the passionate kizzes she's only too happy to share with anyone who's willing to receive them.

A very pretty little girl, sweet but with plenty of pluck which indeed she needs to survive the energetic and gunho crowd of youngsters she's growing up with.

Always the first to ask, and of course get, a cuddle and with half closed eyes, absolutely adores every minute of it.  That's our Katie.

Cavalrite Perfect Grace (Gracie)

Utterly beguiling in every way, little Gracie is the daughter of Holly and Rev (Winjax Mira Belle and Clarelly Bad Moon Rising).

Making a choice of the girls in this litter was nigh on impossible for us  as their quality was so high and so equal.   Only after the choice having been made, on some inexplicable basis which couldn't be defined, did the realisation came to us that this little girl reminded us totally of our little Gracie that we had previously lost to a tick bite.

Gracie's sweet little personality and mannerisms never fail to tug at our heartstrings and we believe she will be equally as engrossing as an adult.   Gracie is now retired from our breeding programme and continues to be our 'special' and 'dramatic' little house girl :)  She's remains up on our website because she'd simply be heartbroken to be taken down ...... she considers that as with everything, she and only she is the best of all mothers.

Cavalrite Hollyanna (Hannah)

The second of our girls kept from our Holly, Hannah is named after her mother.

Hannah is a very bright and chirpy little girl with plenty of confidence and 'luv' to give.

She carries on the lines from Holly and Lilly and we look forward to watching her grow into as beautiful young lady as her sister.

Hannah has 'all it takes' to be noticed and 'all it takes' to keep the attention.

Cavalrite Lillibeth (Beth)

We waited several years for our Lilly to give us a tri girl and when she deigned to do so, she not only gave us a little beauty, but another beauty which was on special order for a special client.

This little 'princess' is very similar to her half sister Gracie in personality - born to be royal and although confident, not particularly keen on too much rough and tough rumbling which she soon makes known, but always ready for smooches and cuddles.

She was certainly worth the wait and could well rival Gracie for stunning looks and head jerks from admirers.

 Cavalrite Petite Sirah (Sirah)

This little tyke has no idea she is the lillest of the youngsters and is full of pluck and personality.

With a lovely combination of her parents' good looks and that personality, it's not surprising that she's very popular with everyone who sets eyes on her and that the others all seem to play softer and more kindly with her.    She of course, doesn't notice and just thinks she's a big tough girl.

She has plenty of confidence and young Gracie certainly has taken her under her wing.

We looking forward to watching this little beauty grow up to be as stunning as her mother

Cavalrite Waltzing Matilda (Tilda)

We had to wait for Cara's second litter to have the pleasure of keeping one of her little girls, and the wait was well worth it.    This little mini-Cara has already wormed her way right into our hearts with a duplicate of her mother's sweetest peronality in the world.    With a sweet father like Duke she could hardly miss out on being yet another little angel.

Tilda has all her parents good looks, solid bone and beautiful colouring as well as that lovely head with soft expression.

We already love her dearly and we're sure she'll grow up to be equally as beautiful as her mother.

Cavalrite Westminster Abbey (Abbey)

We may continually rue the day we lost our lovely Connor to a cane toad, but the progeny he left behind in his name have certainly carried his flag beautifully.

Daughter of Casey and Connie (Connor's namesake), our little Abbey is such a joy to behold with the sweetest, most feminine little personality which quickly worms her into your heart.   Life is just a sweet little bowl of cherries to this girl and she's also the chief looker afterer of little Pippi, the smallest of puppies one could ever come across in this breed.

We are sooooo proud of our little girl, even at this young age.

Cavalrite April Love (April)

April is Holly's last little girl to grace this earth and our lives.   The two babies in this litter were quickly dubbed 'the bookends' simply because they would have made a perfect pair to grace any mantelpiece.

With beautiful and sweet parents in Casey and Holly, April has the loveliest build, markings, head and personality that could only be inherited from this marriage.

Happily playing and investigating as puppies do, April and here playmates are just enjoying life as it comes and gracing our lives in the process.

Holly saved her best for last.

Cavalrite Belle of the Ball (Bella)

Our Holly gave us tri girls from her very last litter.   Little Bella is showing loads of potential both physically and with her lovely quietly confident little personality.

The mix of Holly and Loki certainly brought us a wonderful litter and we're so pleased to have Holly's daughters from this mating to go on with.

An absolute joy to behold and ever endearing with her feminine and perky little personality, we're so happy to have Bella to carry on her mother's lines along with Hanna, Gracie and April.

brown paw print

Cavalrite Colour Purple (Daisy)

Cara and Duke only had one little girl with this litter and what a little girl she is.

Just as beautiful and beguiling as her sister and mother, Daisy is taking the world by storm.   Just like her mother threats of abduction are already rife and we're having to check visitor's bags to ensure a bright eyed little girl isn't being absconded with.

A singleton puppy, but certainly not lacking in puluk is our little Daisy and she gets more than her share of nurses, both because she's on her own in her age group, and because she's irresistable.

Our home has certainly come alive with the addition of this little cherub.

Cavalrite Amazing Grace (May)

Gracie presented us with two little girls in her last litter, Emma and May, and of course, we couldn't part with either of them.

Emma is like her daddy in personality, very sweet and gentle, but also quite independant and active.

May is more like her mother - needs more love and will forego the excitement for cuddles.

Both have missed out on mummy's quirky personality that will only let Maggie handle her and treats anyone else as though they have huge horns and fangs (where this came from is beyond us, so we just accept it).

Both girls are beautiful and are maturing up very nicely.

Along with Joybell, Gracie has done us proud and we love having these little girls in our lives.

Cavalrite Aint She Sweet (Aisha)

This beautiful little girl is the daughter of April and Loki and she lives up to her name, Aisha meaning lively, and sweet she certainly is.

She has her mother's beautiful figure and a lovely mixture of both her mother and father's head.   Her markings are lovely and she's an absolute joy to behold in all ways.

We're sure she's going to grow up into a stunning young lady and in the meantime she just enjoys life to its fullest.

brown paw print

Cavalrite Moon Spinner (Hayley)

Daughter of Hannah and Bogie, this sweet little girl was destined to stay right from birth.

Hayley is growing up nicely and has such a sweet personality that she is loved by all.

We're looking forward to her continuing to grow and enjoy life and blossom into the beautiful young lady she is.

Cavalrite Enough Said (Tasha)

Again the daughter of Hannah and Bogie, this equally sweet little girl we are delighted to say has come back to the fold, much to our and the other girls' delight.

A bright and sweet little personality our little Tammie.

Just going through the lankies, Tammie has settled back into our clan and enjoying herself immensely.   She and Aisha and Hayley are a trio of the love of life and fun.

Tasha is currently staying with Aunnie Sharn and embarking on her show carreer in NSW.

Our Young Hopefuls

We have several girls close to retirement and the girls below are the 'next generation' girls to replace them.   These girls have yet to reach breeding age and/or have yet to be specialist health checked.


Cavalrite Blackberry Wine (Sheeba)

Little Sheeba is a plucky but sweet little girl and is the first of Clancy and Sirah's daughters to arrive.

We're definitely hoping this little one carries on to have the showring presence of her cousins, but time will tell.

In the meantime, Sheeba is totally enjoying life and playing with kidz her own age and bigg kidz.

Always a feminine, but plucky little one, she manages to combine both attributes to be ready to join in any fun that might be available.

Cavalrite Sounds of Summer (Summer)

The minute this little girl was born, we knew she was a 'keeper' and she certainly hasn't disappointed.

A bright, waggily sweet little confident personality goes with her beautiful looks.  She's another one that catches your eye and keeps it.

Happily rumbling with the bigga kidz, Summer is loving life to the fullest.

Cavalrite Windsong Sonata (Tinkerbell)

Grandaughter of our beloved Lilly whom we lost through skullduggery, this little girl has all of the regality of looks and conformation that remind us so much of her grandmother.

Apart from the fact that 'Tinka' is a blenheim whereas our Lilly is a tri, it is uncanny how alike they are.

She's beguiling, a little Miss and a joy to behold and enjoys rumbling with her 'twin', little Pippa who is not actually her sister but might as well be.

An only child to Winnie and Loki, little Miss Tinka was given the impression that she is 'special' from birth and special she is.   Winnie's difficulty with birthings means that Tinka will be her only child, forever.

brown paw print

Cavalrite Star Sapphire (Bonnie)

We have kept a second daughter from Clancy and Sirah, and why wouldn't me.

Again with the lovely personality that this mating brings, and the good looks from both her parents, little Bonnie brings much love to our household.

We're enjoying her antics and watching her grow up into the beautiful young lady she will inevitably become.

brown paw print

Cavalrite Come What May (Pippa)

Our little Miss personality.   

Daughter of Loki and April, this little girl made an impression from birth and while we took time to choose the little girl to keep from this litter, she always stood out just that little bit more.

She is certainly confirming, every day, that we made the right choice and we are enjoying every minute of watching her grow.

BFFs with little Tinka, we've dubbed these two 'the twins' becaue they're never far apart and always gang up for fun, mischief and tucker.    They do everything together.

brown paw print

Melriver On The Wings Of Love (Melody)

We once again have a little Melriver girl in our midst and we're so pleased to welcome little Melody into our fold.

I have always had one or two little Melriver girls over the years and the sad loss of our Maisie through snake bite meant we didn't have any.

Patricia and John Mellusco kindly allowed us to have this little girl, particularly as her namesake was also lost to a Taipan snake.   I can't thank them enough for the opportunity.

Melody bounced into our lives recently, bold, confident, independant, very cuddley .... just like her namesake who's lines she carries, and she has been an absolute delight since that day.

She fits in like a glove, even though the twins thought she might be from outer space at first.  Often seen playing with Benson, Summer,Bonnie and Sassy and the twins, she's such a happy little girl and so well balanced in every way.

It's actually uncanny just how like her namesake she is.

Willawarren Lily Of The Valley (Lily)

When Sandra McCarron and I began our association many years ago, I certainly couldn't foresee that I would be lucky enough to recoupe my lines, sadly lost through skulduggery as in the case of little Lilly's grandmother.

Named after her grandmother and uncannily like her in looks and personality, our little Lilly bounced into our lives, full of confidence and believing the world was hers.

Watching her strut around with her grandmother's beautiful movement, greet the rest of the youngsters as if they ought to be privileged to have her in their midst and generally settle down like an old timer, has been an absolute joy.

We can't thank Sandra and Marshall McCarron enough for providing us with the opportunity of having this little girl, and her brother, Benson.

These two babies are the culmination of all my most valued lines.

In keeping with our 'open honesty' policy here at Cavalrite and to allay negative gossip as to the 'disappearance' of our dogs from time to time, we've added this section in regard to our retired, older, dogs.    

We would love to be able to keep each and every dog we have, but unfortunately, practicalities dictate that we can't.   We will not force our girls to breed, flog, overbreed or breed our girls too long, so from time to time we do seek appropriate and suitable adoption homes for our older girls, or girls who are not suited to breeding for one reason or another.    We believe our responsibility to ensure wellbeing covers all our dogs, young and older, and will continue to do everthing we can to ensure that each and every dog in our care has a happy, well cared for life ahead of it.

Our Beautiful retired girl Penny is a Cancer Survivor !!!!!

Penny was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of lymphatic cancer  back in July/August 2011 and our beautiful vets, Kathy and Shannon instigated protocols to allow Penny to be treated locally.     Treatment commenced as soon as the condition was confirmed.    The little trojan trundled into the vet once a week for the first few months and then fortnightly to have her treatment.   She didn't complain about the need to isolate her from the others although she was able to see the other kids and everything that was going on.   She responded very well to the treatment and halfway through her bloods were normal.   Penny had her last treatment on the 17th February 2012 and her bloods remain normal.   Once her immunity rebuilds, Penny can join in on the day's activities again.    She has monthly checkups for a while but no more chemo !!!!!!  

We are soooooo proud of our little girl.   She took everything in her stride, the needles, the mild tummy upsets for a day or so after, and the isolation.    If ever there was a little dog that would indicate that it's worth the time, the expense and the worry of treating cancer - she would be it.    We hope she goes on now to live a normal happy life.

Our special thanks to our wonderful vets and staff who not only reorganised their day and surgery protocols for Penny but also ensured that she felt very special and loved throughout her long ordeal.   Neither Penny, nor I, could have endured it as well as we have without their support.

Cavalrite Faith (Faith)

It is with a very heavy and sad heart that we had to say goodbye to our little darling on 11th March, 2009.

Faith was raised with the assistance of our beautiful Papillon Princess and our teamwork at hand-feeding as she just couldn't cope with all the brothers and sisters in her litter and was missing out on titty all the way.    There were times when we wondered whether she had the fight to pull through, but she hung on and what she lacked in size, she certainly, without question, made up for in 'pluck'.  

We're not sure whether we're just absolutely and totally biased or not, but we believe our little girl was one of the prettiest and sweetest little Cavi girls we've known.   For one so young and who's life was cut short at 6 months, she certainly packed a lifetime of selfless love into our lives, always with that cute little smile of hers, .   We will always miss her dreadfully.


Saving Grace


Gracie was rescued in the nick of time from underneath her mother as a tiny baby, Gracie was seconds from her last breath.

Her absolute will to live and our teamwork in 'being there for her' resulted in her revival after a week of question marks as to whether or not she would survive.

Gracie was a little behind her siblings in development, but continually displays her determination to make up the difference and live a happy and healthy little life.

We were absolutely devastated when we lost little Gracie with complications following tick poisoning.  Although caught early, her reduced mobility skills and her reactions to the anti-venom treatment overtook her, despite the immediate, professional and lengthy efforts of the vet on duty.
