Meet a born again breed! In the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries, these happy little spaniels were enormously popular pets of English royalty. In the 19th century, fanciers began to favour a short nosed dog and the original Cavalier practically disappeared. In 1926, an American offered handsome cash prizes to anyone who could breed dogs that looked like the Cavaliers in the old paintings. It worked, God bless America and England! A sweet, gentle, melting expression is a hallmark of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. CH TRAVIS (above) from Lisa Gamble in Wales, is a perfect example of what a good Ruby Cavalier boy should be. He is as beautiful as he is sweet. Cavaliers are supposed to be between 12 and 13 inches high at the withers to be the perfect height. They should weigh between 13-18 pounds at maturity, with slight variations acceptable. Cavaliers are loving and sweet with all ages, from infants to seniors, and make wonderful therapy dogs. They are a perfect breed for a family pet and love to sit on your lap. They will follow you everywhere. They are indoor dogs and not happy outside unless you are out with them.

The Red and white Cavaliers were the favorite of the Duke of Marlborough and were called "Blenheim" (pronounced: Blen-um) after his family's estate, which was also the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. Cavaliers come in four colors: BLENHEIM, which is (Chestnut (red) and White); TRI (Black and White with tan points); RUBY (all chestnut "red") ; and BLACK & TAN. They are known for their loving and happy disposition. This quiet companion is neither yappy nor snippy. They have long flowing ears and large dark soft eyes. These precious toy spaniels are not only "wash and wear" (no groomer's needed) but are fearless and must be protected. They would walk up to a lion thinking it was their best friend.

Called comforter Spaniels in the 1700's, Cavaliers served as lap and bed warmers. During the Stuart period, the breed enjoyed tremendous popularity, particularly under the reigns of Charles I and II. So enamored was Charles II of the little dog that he reportedly preferred playing and hunting with his beloved Royal Spaniels rather than tending to matters of state. He bestowed upon the breed the royal title of King Charles Spaniel and enacted a law allowing the Cavalier in all public places, including the Houses of Parliament. The law is still in place today. His supporters were called Cavaliers, as were his loyal dogs. "Millie" pictured above, was one of the most loving Cavaliers I have ever known. She was my first Champion at Mayfield Cavaliers, bred by Jane and Anne Thaeder of South Carolina. Millie has produced 10 Champions. She has the highest honor award the National Club can bestow, Register of Merit. (ROM) Cavaliers do shed, however it can be kept to a minimum by keeping them clean and by frequent brushing. They do not lose their hair in klumps. They loose single hairs like humans do. They are truly a "Wash and Wear" breed, with no need for professional groomers. Below are the Mayfield Cavaliers at home.
Mayfield Pups that became Grand Champions
(See the puppy page 2)
This is a quality litter of Mayfield puppies pictured at 12 weeks of age, which is when most my puppies leave for their new homes. If you have small children, the puppies must be at least 14 weeks of age before leaving. I occasionally have puppies which are available to loving homes with secure fenced yards. I require a puppy application be completed to see if you would be a good match for a Mayfield Cavalier. I rarely ship dogs unattended. Our dogs do not live in kennels or crates, but run free and are part of the household. After all, they were royal palace pets and they still are. Expect to pay from $2,000-$3,500 from a reputable and ethical breeder. Be smart, buy from a breeder who shows their dogs. Most will have tested for heart, eyes & hips. The puppies will also be properly socialized. *VERY IMPORTANT: The puppies will be no more money than buying from a breeder who breeds dogs for no other reason than to make money, and most those breeders DO NOT BOARD CERTIFY. READ THE LINK SITE BELOW "WHAT TO KNOW BEFORE YOU BUY" and NEVER BUY FROM A PETSHOP, PROFESSIONAL (commercial) BREEDER OR A NEWSPAPER AD! You will be supporting brokers and puppy mills if you do. See link on "puppy mills", a sad and unhealthy place. Do not buy from anyone advertising "Imports". These are also brokers. Be sure you see at least one parent, and the enviroment they live in.
