Our Dogs are proudly Australian-bred,
true to the breed standard and health tested.
Welcome to our Website
In some States, the governments have introduced a breeder registration requirement and this is causing some confusion for families seeking to purchase a puppy from a registered breeder.
To assist, we've compiled these quick details:
ANKC (Australian National Kennel Council) Registered Breeders - The ANKC is the Australian branch of the worldwide purebred councils who are the original keepers of records of purebred dogs and breeders. Breeders registered with the ANKC have strict rules, regulations and codes of ethics and conduct to follow and all their dogs and puppies are registered with the ANKC. These are the breeders referred to as 'registered breeders'. To assist with the confusion, they may refer to themselves as ANKC registered breeders. They are the ones to work with to ensure you are getting a purebred puppy or dog. If you are seeking to purchase a purebred dog or puppy from a registered breeder, it is wise for you to check that the breeder and their dogs are ANKC registered.
More detailed information on this can be obtained by clicking the link below
State breeder registration breeders - in some states, the govt requires breeders of any dogs, pure or partbred to be registered with them as a listed breeder. This is purely a list of dog breeders and does not keep pedigrees. It is hoped that this register rids the state of puppy farmers and unscrupulous breeding. State Govts issue breeders with a BIN number. Unfortunately, breeders listed with these State Govt bodies are starting to refer to themselves as 'registered breeders', which in fact is not correct to how the term has been used for eons.
MDBA registered breeders - in recent years a new registration body has started up which is more flexible in the dogs they will accept on their register. This body includes incorrect attributes which would not be accepted by the ANKC, as well as partbreds on their register. Their expectations of the integrity of the dog and on the breeder are not as strict as the ANKC. However, some breeders will refer to their dogs as being purebreds because they are registered with this body, but would not be accepted for registration with the ANKC. They might even refer to themselves as 'registered breeders', however while this infers they are registered through the ANKC because this is the term used to indicate same for generations, it is not correct.
We believe that every family has the right to be fully and correctly informed about any puppy they are considering and have compiled a simple explanation of how to establish whether a puppy is a purebred.
We hope it assists you to feel confident in any purchase you may make, of any puppy.
A fully informed decision is always the right decision.
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.
Please note: We rarely have puppies readily available, simply because they are offered to our screened waiting list first. On the rare occasion that we do have a puppy readily available, it will be listed on our 'Current Litters' page - see index to the left.
Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.
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 in our living room, complete with outside yards. 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 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.
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 of our dogs and surroundings prior to choosing a puppy (by appointment only, time permitting, and following the receipt of a completed inquiry form).
Please bear in mind that a pre-inspection visit may not always be possible given that we have a very busy day caring for all our charges, and I will not allow a soon to be mother, or new mother to be stressed by the appearance of visitors. It is also our private dwelling that you are visiting.
For this reason, we have made our website as informative as possible depicting all our facilities and dogs clearly.
We have families often calling to visit their puppies once they are over 4 weeks old in order to build a rapport and on these visits families are introduced to both parents and can interact with all of our dogs as and if they wish to.
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.
Please feel free to check out our site and also feel free to contact us at anytime
We also act as a Foster Home for the RSPCA from time to time
whenever we are able to be of assistance.
