While we are absolutely delighted for our clients and dogs that have 'survived the ambush' and achieved varying success in the showring - this website is in no way meant as a vehicle to display our success or notariety.  It is meant to be informative and is based on what I would like to know when researching and searching for a puppy, as well as covering the questions I have been asked over the years. 


It has also evolved to be a source of updating our extended families who keep tabs on the Cavalrite news from time to time.

 

For those who appreciate and enjoy our website - you're very welcome, we enjoy doing it for you.


Please scroll down to let us introduce you to our establishment.

Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole. 



Prior to being included in our breeding programme, our beautiful dogs are Health Tested (eyes and heart) as per our Specialists' recommendations, DNA tested, and Health Certified as to general health at least annually.   Younger dogs are not introduced into our breeding programme until such time as they are physically and emotionally mature enough, and then only once their specialist health certification is achieved.


All our dogs (both young and old) are free running in huge grassed and treed areas, not in cages or pens, have their every need met willingly and lovingly and our mothers are rested well between litters, and retired at a young age, sometimes after only one or two litters.   For this reason we have a number of younger kids coming up the ranks, but the number of dogs who are actively involved in our breeding programme at the one time is limited. 

Visitors often comment on how happy and healthy our dogs are - as each and every one of them lines up for cuddles having thoroughly welcomed the braver visitors who have gone in to interact with them.  It's definitely Cavi love en masse and with gusto.

While there are those in the show or breeding fraternity that may not agree with our chosen matings, just as we may not agree with theirs, we know where we want to go with our breeding programme and the matings we do are part of a well researched breeding plan.  We will not use a dog for breeding if it is found to have health problems or throws faults which are undesirable.  Nor will we use a dog for breeding if it is not robust and healthy or if it is unwilling or unsuited to breeding.


We also firmly believe that pet families have equal right to have a healthy, quality, well-bred puppy, and do not view puppy families as a means of off-loading inferior or 'sub-standard' puppies.  Indeed the provision of quality puppies to pet families by responsible registered breeders gives those families the option NOT to purchase from pet shops or puppy farmers.   The defaming of responsible registered breeders who provide puppies for all families, not just for show homes, or for their own showing purposes is ridiculous and childish.   


Our well adjusted puppies are also Health Certified, properly and lovingly raised, initially in temperature controlled, comfy, clean and tidy conditions with classical music wafting over them, and doting mothers who are totally and utterly spoilt with breakfast in bed on demand - yes we admit it, our dogs and babies are spoilt rotten.   Once puppies are up and around, they move from their nursery into our living room where they have access to a tiled, covered verandah and onto the lawn.    By the time they go to their new homes, they believe that every human is going to love and adore them as much as we do.


And lastly, we do show, as and when we can, which is not often simply because the wellbeing of our dogs will take first priority over showing accolades simply because we care about our dogs.    Our dogs are, however, appearing in the ring as well as going to non-show homes.    We are supporters of, and  accredited with Dogs Qld Breeder Accreditation Scheme.

About our Website and Facilities  


We have endeavoured to make this site informative for you in all ways.  

We have chosen to breed our favourite breed - Cavaliers which, in our view,cannot be surpassed for their adaptability, joy of life and people loving natures.   If you’ve already had a Cavalier as a member of your family, then you don’t need an explanation.   If you’re contemplating the addition of one  into your family, you will possibly be making a choice you certainly won’t regret.


We are situated on forty acres atop of a mountain 35 minutes north of Gympie, Queensland and our dogs are kept and raised in beautiful rural surroundings, with million dollar views.   Whether they appreciate the views is questionable, but they certainly enjoy the fresh air and grass to romp on.  Their every need is catered for without question.


Our mothers have maternity ensuites complete with courtyards, temperature controlled rooms and classical music playing in the background.    They and their babies are spoiled rotten and love every minute of it.


Once puppies are up and around and on the way to weaning, they are brought into our living room where they have access to the verandah (under cover) and grass romping areas.   By the time they go to their new homes, they are practically house trained preferring to go outside for toilets.   They are also well-socialised and familiar with household noises and activities.


We take great care in choosing our foundation dogs, researching the health and true type of each new dog that we might purchase from time to time.    We did introduce a second breed, but found that our focus rested solely on our favourites, the Cavalier, so we've decided to remain with that breed.  


Our breeding is done in-house as that allows us to more opportunity to 'know' the outcomes and to ensure that our breeding programme is continually monitored for health and quality.   This necessitates owning and caring properly for a number of dogs to ensure that correct principles of breeding are maintained.   Each and every one of our dogs is properly loved (first and foremost), cared for and maintained.   Our dogs' wellbeing comes first, above all else, including show accolades.


We encourage puppies' new families to visit whenever they can and welcome a pre-inspection (by appointment only, and following the receipt of a completed inquiry form) of our dogs and surroundings prior to choosing a puppy.  We carefully screen new families and required agreements as noted on our puppy page.  Whenever possible, we will take puppies to Brisbane for collection and welcome families who are wishing to visit with their puppies prior to taking delivery.
