Trescaval Cavaliers © 2014

My advice to anyone considering purchasing a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is as follows:

1. Buy from a registered breeder. Check with the Canine Association of WA on (08) 9455 1188 who will advise if the breeder is registered. The names in the breeders’ directory are only those who have chosen to pay money and advertise with the CAWA. There are lots of other registered breeders, but they can be difficult to find

2. Make sure the breeder is health testing. As a minimum Cavalier breeders should be heart testing. A condition known as Mitral Valve Disease is the most prevalent health condition in Cavaliers. It is claimed that 50% of Cavaliers will have a heart murmur by the time they reach 5 or 6 years of age. This is substantiated by published research. A certificate is issued by a veterinarian, preferably a specialist, stating that the dog is clear from heart disease. Heart testing should be done on a yearly basis. Ask the breeder for recent clear heart certificates. Certificates should be made available for both the sire and dam of the puppy. Some breeders will also test for hereditary eye disease. Certificates are also issued, also preferably by a specialist

3. Make sure you have adequate support from the breeder. Reputable breeders will supply information about the puppy’s pedigree, how to look after the puppy and will also include a vaccination certificate, a microchip, plus other relevant information. Registered breeders do not sell puppies before they are 8 weeks of age.

4. Responsible breeders will discuss both the positive and negative aspects of the breed. They will also allow you to visit (providing all of their dogs are adequately vaccinated), will have their dogs living in clean living quarters. They should ask you lots of questions. Some breeders may ask you to complete a questionnaire to assess your suitability as a potential owner of a puppy.

Canine Association of WA registered breeders are obliged to abide by a Code of Ethics. This offers you as a puppy buyer some peace of mind, rather than purchasing from an unregistered breeder who has no obligation to abide by a Code of Ethics and cannot provide you with a certificate of registration for their puppies.
