Welcome to CAVALIERS BY VAL!!!!!  We believe puppies are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.  Our website strives to inform and educate about the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.  The Cavalier is simply an irresistible breed, distinguished by beauty, charisma, and unfettered affection.  We are priviliged and proud to introduce our Cavaliers to you.  Our first and foremost committment to you, as adoptive parents to our Cavaliers, is that you will have in your family, the heatlhiest, happiest, and fun to be with companion for many years to come.  We raise these little angels as we would our own children, they are cared for by the best veterinarians, given their vaccinations on a timely basis and we make certain that the breeding mother and father are the healthiest they can be at the time of conception.   We raise our Cavaliers on Royal Canin and Fromm dog food,  premium food that not only enhances their strength and health, but provides them the healthiest coat.  Please contact us to come and see these tiny treasures, as that is what they are.  Cavaliers are the most gentle creatures and possess in them love that is immeasureable.  Playful, loving and gentle.  A combination we would describe as made in heaven. 

OUR PHILOSOPHY

 

We believe our Cavaliers are to us as children are to others.   Our Cavaliers come first.  Their health and happiness for future years to come is highly considered during the adoption process.  The USUAL go home time is when the puppy is 10 weeks old, however as breeders we may opt to hold them until they are 12 weeks . We also believe that when you adopt one, their  health is assured to you and certified accordingly.  Should you during the course of their lifetime find that you can no longer care for them, we want them back without reservation.  During their first year should anything arise hereditary or health related, we will replace the puppy.  We simply want the Cavalier you adopt to be happy and healthy and cared for. If you want to 'reserve' one of the puppies we have available or an upcoming future litter, click the PAYPAL button on the 'ADOPTION FEE' page and place  refundable  deposit of $300 to reserve your puppy.  That paypal button is at the BOTTOM of the adoption fee page.  Please note what color or gender you're seeking and follow up with an email or phone call to us, please.   At the time of adoption, the $300 deposit will be applied to the total adoption fee of $2800. So, $2500 will be required at the time of adoption either by money order, personal check or cash.  We are not able to take debit or credit cards at this time.  Don't forget to call us after you place your paypal reservation  so your puppy doesn't inadvertently go to someone else.   

THANK YOU CONSIDERING ONE OF OUR PUPPIES.  ALL PUPPIES ARE CUTE, BUT REQUIRE A SINCERE COMMITMENT FROM YOU FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES.

OFA certifications increase the "probability" of getting a healthy dog. We believe breeding good healthy dogs increases the probability that the puppies from these dogs will live long happy lives. We keep up with our breeding dogs their entire lives. It is always my goal to provide you with a beautiful, healthy puppy, one that will bring years of love and happiness to your family. 

WE SPECIALIZE IN SMALLER CAVALIERS

WE BREED ONLY CAVALIER KING CHARLES SPANIELS

WE BREED BLENHEIM, TRI-COLOR, RUBY AND BLACK & TAN. 

WE DO NOT SELL OUR PUPPIES TO BROKERS OR PET SHOPS. WE DO NOT SHIP OUR PUPPIES.  IF A PUPPY HAS TO GO A DISTANCE, WE DO WHAT IS CALLED A 'NANNY TRANSPORT', WITHIN REASONABLE DISTANCE YOUR PUPPY WILL BE DRIVEN TO YOUR LOCATION IN OUR PERSONAL VEHICLE. THERE IS A FEE FOR 'NANNY TRANSORT'.  NEVER WILL ONE OF OUR PUPPIES TRAVEL BY CARGO HOLD OR SHIPPED.  IT IS TOO TRAUMATIC FOR THE PUPPY.  

 

The ideal home is one with a stay-at-home parent, work-at-home spouse or retired couple.

 

A Cavalier’s natural animation and cheerfulness stand out in the show ring. He can be a steady and willing competitor in obedience and rally, and excels in agility and flyball. His intuitive nature also makes him a superb therapy dog. 

These dogs generally love kids and do well in families with older children who will throw a ball for them, teach them tricks or just hang out with them. Because of their small size, though, Cavaliers must be protected from toddlers who might fall on them or “pet” them with too much force.

Toy breeds such as Cavaliers are sometimes difficult to housetrain, mainly because people don’t put enough effort into it. If you take a Cavalier puppy out on a regular schedule, reward him for pottying outdoors and limit his freedom in the home until he’s reliable, there is no reason he can’t be housetrained as well as any other breed.

At his best, the Cavalier is an adaptable, flexible, hardy little dog. He’s happy to loll around on the sofa with you all day but ready for action when it’s offered. Although he’s classified as a toy breed, the Cavalier is at the larger end of the size scale, weighing 13 to 18 pounds. He often has the same “birdy” nature as his larger spaniel cousins, making him a good choice for people who want a dog who’s not too big but still capable of going for hikes, chasing seagulls at the beach or even retrieving quail, given the training and opportunity. He will also “hunt” butterflies and bugs and loves playing fetch with a ball or stuffed toy.

Always walk the Cavalier on a leash. When he sees a bird or other potential prey, everything else goes out of his head. All too often Cavaliers are hit by cars and killed when they chase a bird or ball -- right into the street.

It should go without saying that the Cavalier is not meant to live outdoors. He’s a family dog who needs to be with his people and protected from excessive heat and cold.

 

 

HOW TO FIND A RESPONSIBLE BREEDER

When shopping for a home, it's about location, location, location. When shopping for a pup, it's about breeder, breeder, breeder! Dogs are living creatures that will hopefully be with us for 10 - 15 years. Therefore your choice of where to purchase your future family companion is extremely important, ranking right up there with the choice of your significant other or partner. It is well worth investing some time now to be sure you are working with a reputable, responsible breeder who breeds healthy, happy dogs.

How Do You Identify A Responsible Breeder?

Good breeders do not breed to make money. They do not sell their puppies to the first person that shows up with cash in hand. They do not knowingly sell even one puppy to a pet shop, broker, or middle man for resale.  Review the topics listed below and look for a breeder who, at a minimum, does the following:

  • Keeps dogs in the home as part of the family, not outside in kennel runs.
  • Has adult dogs who appear happy and healthy, are excited to meet new people, and do not shy away from visitors.
  • Shows you where the dogs spend most of their time, which should be a clean, well-maintained area.
  • Encourages you to spend time with the puppy’s parents (at a minimum, the puppy’s mother) when you visit.
  • Does not allow the puppy to leave its mother or the litter before 10 to 12 weeks of age, preferably.
  • Only breeds one or two types of dogs and is knowledgeable about the desired characteristics of the breed, such as size, proportion, coat, color, and temperament.
  • Has a strong relationship with a local veterinarian. Explains the puppy’s medical history and what vaccinations your new puppy will need.
  • Explains in detail the potential genetic problems inherent in Cavaliers and provides documentation through organizations such as the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) that the puppy’s parents and grandparents have been tested to ensure that they are free of these genetic problems.
  • Offers guidance for caring and training your puppy and is available for assistance after you take your puppy home.
  • Recommends that you promptly take your puppy to your veterinarian for an exam. The responsible breeder’s veterinarian will have already examined your puppy.
  • Is willing to provide references from other families who have purchased puppies if you ask.
  • Feeds high quality, premium brand pet food.
  • Does not always have puppies available.
  • Encourages multiple visits and wants your entire family to meet the puppy.
  • Provides you with a written agreement, contract, and/or health guarantee and allows plenty of time for you to read it thoroughly.
In addition to these criteria, you will want a breeder who requires some things of you, too. The breeder will probably ask you to:
  • Explain why you want a dog.
  • Explain who in your family will be responsible for the puppy’s daily care and attend training classes, where the dog will spend most of his/her time, and what rules have been decided upon for the puppy -- for example, whether or not the dog will be allowed on the furniture.
  • Provide a veterinary reference.
  • Provide proof from your landlord or condominium board that you are allowed to have a dog.
  • Sign a contract that you will spay or neuter the dog unless you will be actively involved in showing him/her. (Applies to show quality dogs only.)
  • Sign a contract stating that you will return the dog to the breeder should you be unable to keep the dog at any point in the dog’s life.
If the breeder you are working with doesn’t meet MOST of these minimum criteria - walk away. It cannot be stressed often enough: Do not be tempted, regardless of the circumstances, to purchase your puppy from an importer, a broker, a middle-man, or pet shops. Most of those puppies come from mass breeding facilities better known as puppy mills. Another pitfall to avoid is a “backyard breeder” -- someone who breeds their dogs to make a little money or simply because they have dogs “with papers”. Too often, the result of such practices includes puppies with poor health or temperament problems that may not be discovered until years later. In some cases, these problems can cost thousands of dollars to treat.

Talk to the breeder, describe exactly what you’re looking for in a dog, and ask for assistance in selecting a puppy. Breeders see the puppies daily and can make uncannily accurate recommendations once they know something about your lifestyle and personality.

The perfect Cavalier doesn’t spring fully formed from the whelping box. He’s a product of his background and breeding. Whatever you want from a Cavalier, look for one whose parents have nice personalities and who has been well socialized from early puppyhood.

Top 5 reasons to own a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

5th Reason to own a Cavalier-THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL!!

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder they often say. But most will agree that Cavaliers are beautiful. Their coats are soft and silky much like velvet. They have fur but not so much that they need regular visits to the groomer. They are often called the wash n wear dogs. With good reason. A good sized sink or bathtub is all that is needed to clean up these little dogs. Additionally they don't have an oily coat so most people that are allergic to dogs will not have adverse reactions to Cavaliers. This also insures that they don't have that dreaded 'dog smell' that many other breeds of dog have a day or so after their bath. We call them clean dogs for a reason. They are easily maintained and aren't overly fond of dirty things. But that being said they are still, at the end of the day, dogs.

4th  Reason to own a Cavalier-VERY INTELLIGENT!!

Brains and beauty; Cavaliers have loads of both. They are extremely 'tuned in' to their humans. Being one of the cleverest breeds of dog there is today, it is hard to not spoil them. In fact they are so smart they aren't afraid to use their good looks to get what they want. Just one look into those big brown soulful eyes and we melt. You'll find yourself asking what you can get for them. A treat maybe? A belly rub? A nice walk? They have us figured out and can get us to jump through hoops with a slight tilt of the head and a blink of the eye. I'm not saying they are over achievers because they aren't. Which is one of their most endearing qualities. In fact if you arrive home bush whacked and tired they aren't going to demand 50 rounds of ball toss. They will wag their tail non-stop and just want to snuggle.

3rd  Reason to own a Cavalier-THEY HAVE A GREAT TEMPERAMENT.

When considering the various components of personality we come to what we call temperament. There are many facets of the personality but the Cavalier has an overwhelmingly positive number of attributes. I'll describe a few of the more common ones associated with the Cavaliers. Please realize that this is not an exhaustive list and that each individual dog will respond to its environment as well. Sensitivity and understanding are highly developed traits in the Cavalier. If you are sick in bed they will be your constant companion. Therapy dogs are often Cavaliers. Compassion for other creatures. I have seen cavaliers walk right on past some chickens foraging around. I don't think they would harm a flea. There has been rare occasions where I have found mice in their mouths yet the mouse hasn't been harmed. Of course they weren't giving the mouse up easily either. They adapt their play to what or whom ever they are interacting with. They are equally happy sitting with the children while they play with their toys or hiking up a long winding trail in the mountains Their temperament truly allows them to be the perfect companion and lap warmer. Which is what they do best

2nd  Reason to own a Cavalier-THEY HAVE A WONDER ATTITUDE!!

It can make a bad situation good or visa-versa. With the Cavalier however their attitude makes them easy going and well mannered. This is why so many people with Cavaliers take them with them almost everywhere they go. Because they are so well behaved in public. They don't bark at other dogs or show any signs of aggression. That is actually foreign to them; aggression. When sitting at a coffee shop one day I was just observing my cavalier that was with me and it dawned on me that she was waiting for the folks at another table to come over and say hello to her. She sat there wagging her tail, looking directly at them, and yes they did finally come over and introduce themselves to us and to her. She was happy with the outcome. Patience is a virtue and that day she displayed just how much she has. Cavaliers also 'live in the moment' which is a wonderfully refreshing reminder of how we need more in our daily lives.They don't live in the past and hold grudges. Nor do they live in dreams of the future. They simply enjoy the moment as they are, present.

1st Reason to own a Cavalier-THEIR PURPOSE IN LIFE IS TO LOVE YOU.

Above and beyond all of the aforementioned qualities that make the Cavalier such an outstanding dog, the number one quality of a Cavalier is Love. They love everyone and everything - they are love sponges - they have buckets of love. The sayings go on and on. I have seen them turn dog haters into dog lovers. Really, I have. They have put smiles on countless children's faces along with some complimentary licks. Until one has experienced the pure love that Cavaliers so freely offer, it is hard to truly understand. The amazing part of it all is that their supply is endless. They have enough love for every one that comes into their realm. This one trait - above all the others is what makes these spaniels so Royal. It's as if they know that they are from royalty and humbly embrace it. Once you have been owned by a Cavalier there is never any turning back.

This sturdy toy breed is a re-creation of the toy spaniels that populated royal courts and noble homes in Europe from the 15th to the 19th centuries. True to their heritage as “comforter dogs,” Cavaliers love to be in a lap. The typical Cavalier is always happy, trusting and easygoing, a friend to everyone he meets. The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel today is a beloved, and increasingly popular, companion dog. He's small, loving, playful and attractive.

A Cavalier will dog your footsteps throughout the day, from kitchen to bathroom to home office and back again and prefers not to be left alone for hours on end. The ideal home is one with a stay-at-home parent, work-at-home spouse or retired couple.

A Cavalier’s natural animation and cheerfulness stand out in the show ring. He can be a steady and willing competitor in obedience and rally, and excels in agility and flyball. His intuitive nature also makes him a superb therapy dog. 

These dogs generally love kids and do well in families with older  children who will throw a ball for them, teach them tricks or just hang out with them.  We do not recommend a 10 week old Cavalier puppy go to a family with young children .  These little treasures are still growing, their bones are still developing and although a little one would not intentionally injure a puppy, it does happen.  Please understand our hesitation and caution. 

Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - Sturdy Little Snuggler
The easygoing Cavalier was bred for life in a palace, but as long as he has a comfy lap and plenty of treats and love, he can live anywhere, including a studio apartment. He will enjoy walks of any length and is sturdy enough to go on hikes or chase birds at the beach, but lolling on the sofa with you while you watch television is also high on his list of fun things to do. Most are quiet, but an occasional few will sound the alarm when they see people, birds or squirrels outside the window.

At his best, the Cavalier is an adaptable, flexible, hardy little dog. He’s happy to loll around on the sofa with you all day but ready for action when it’s offered. Although he’s classified as a toy breed, the Cavalier is at the larger end of the size scale, weighing 13 to 18 pounds. He often has the same “birdy” nature as his larger spaniel cousins, making him a good choice for people who want a dog who’s not too big but still capable of going for hikes, chasing seagulls at the beach or even retrieving quail, given the training and opportunity. He will also “hunt” butterflies and bugs and loves playing fetch with a ball or stuffed toy.

LOVE  ~ VERY STRONG AFFECTION:  AN INTENSE FEELING OF TENDERNESS, DEVOTION, AND COMPASSION.  SEE ALSO ... CAVALIER KING CHARLES SPANIEL

BOY CAVALIER vs GIRL CAVALIER

Trying to choose the gender of your new puppy can be a difficult decision but, it doesn't have to be. I suggest you try not to have a strong preference on gender. Keep an open mind and choose a puppy with a personality compatible to you and your family not just one with the gender or color you prefer. As time goes by you will find that issues of color or gender are not as important as finding a Cavalier that fits in perfect with your lifestyle. Your Cavalier will be spayed or neutered making gender much less of an issue. Your Cavalier, male or female will be a devoted companion to you and your family. As long as you choose a responsible breeder who cares about their cavaliers and have healthy lines a Cavalier is a Cavalier, You just can't go wrong no matter what the gender is.

Very true! We were set on the Blenheim coloring on our second Cavalier to join our family but once we met Ellie we fell in love with her and my husband and I agreed we wanted a little black  & tan instead ❤️ and once we met the puppies we were absolutely sold!! Burke and Ellie is this little girls parents and we couldn't ask for a sweeter little girl ❤️ already having a male we did go with girl but be open minded to all available pups!! They're all wonderful!! In the end you don't pick them, they pick you ?❤️? Amanda

LOVING PEOPLE IS UNDOUBTEDLY EMBEDDED IN THE CAVALIERS'S GENETIC CODE.  THE LITTLE SPANIELS ARE ATTRACTED TO PEOPLE THE WAY STRAWBERRY JAM IS TO PEANUT BUTTER.  IF A CAVALIER SEES AN EMPTY LAP, HE IS LIKELY TO JUMP INTO IT,  WHETHER HE KNOWS THE PERSON OR NOT.  AND A CAVALIERS WHO SEES A STRANGER ON THE STREET MAY JUST VEER IN THAT PERSON'S DIRECTION,  ANXIOUS TO MAKE A NEW FRIEND.  HIS MOTTO?  LOVE THE ONE YOU'RE WITH.

FANTOM VAL'S CHARMING TREVOR

After you have made a selection of your puppy, comes the inevitable 'we can't wait to get our new puppy home', and for you as the new 'parents', it may seem like forever!!  But still this is a very important time for you and your new family member.  Come and visit them, let your new 'fur baby' get used to your voice, your scent, your touch.  We want to accomodate you as much as possible, but with feeding, bathing, grooming and taking our Cavaliers to the vet, we have to ask that you try if at all possible to schedule your visit on FRIDAY or SATURDAY between 11am and 4pm, allowing you time to start to develop a bond with your new little one.  If that is not a possibility due to work/life schedules, we will attempt to accomodate a different day, these bonding visits are very important to the puppy's comfort level with you, making their transition to you and your family so much easier.  We'll have an area set up in our living room with more than ample room to let them wander around and stretch their little legs and for you to play with and handle your new family member.
