The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is an elegant, energetic toy breed that is compatible for city or country life. Successful in conformation shows, obedience and agility, they also make wonderful therapy dogs due to their sweet, gentle natures. The breed also became a TV star when featured on "Sex and the City" as Charlotte York's dog. Their silky coats come in four colors - Blenheim (chestnut and white), Tricolor (black, white, and tan), Ruby (solid red) and Black and Tan.

For centuries, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel (a namesake of King Charles II of Britain) has been recorded in paintings and tapestries together with their aristocratic families. It is obvious from these works of art that Cavaliers were a luxury item and lived "the easy life" as housepets. Though used successfully for shooting small game, the Cavalier's true purpose has always been that of companion.

Friendly and easy to train, the Cavalier is a trustworthy companion for children and thrives as part of a family. The coat requires weekly brushing, but no trimming. The breed is adaptable in their need for exercise, happy with either sleeping on the couch or taking long walks.

  Champion Takari's Sweet Gypsy Rose

We obtained out first Cavalier in 1996 when they first received AKC recognition. We wanted a small dog for junior handling and Cavaliers just seemed to be exactly what would fit into our home. We had been involved with pure bred dogs for many years showing and breeding Bernese Mountain Dogs and the Cavaliers happy and friendly temperaments fit into our life style beautifully. They are always ready to snuggle or sit on your lap.

Tari is a member of the American Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club of America and is a charter member of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club of Northeastern New York.

Since our start in 1996 we have produced many Champions and title holders in both agility and obedience. All our dogs have hearts cleared yearly by a cardiologist and all of them have their eyes checked by an ophthalmologist. When we place a puppy we hope to maintain a lifelong relationship with the new owners.

Please feel free to contact us for information about puppies or just for general information about Cavaliers. Please visit our dog's pages to learn more about them.

In 2011, shortly after the beginning of AKC's Breeder of Merit program, we became a member. Click here to find out what this means to you.
