Welcome to Daisylane Cavaliers. This site was created to help educate you about
Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, a delightful small family dog. A Cavalier is a beautiful
dog which also needs to be sound of temperament and health to ensure the
continuation of the breed.
A conformation title (CH) ensures that the breeder is conforming to the breed
standard. An obedience title (CD, CDX, UD, UDX, OTCH) or therapy certification
ensures the temperament of the Cavalier. An agility title (NA, NAJ, OA, OAJ, AX, AXJ,
MX, MXJ, MACH) ensures the structure, without good structure a dog cannot achieve
high level agility titles. Events such as conformation, obedience and agility, help to
define and prove the standard of the breed.
Health testing performed by certified veterinarians specializing in cardiology,
orthopedics and ophthalmology (ACVO) ensures the continued health of the breed. As
a breeder, one must have specific testing such as eye exams, heart exams, hip x-rays
and patella exams performed on their breeding stock to reduce the possibility of the
continued genetic problems in the breed. Health specific certifications are issued by
the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals, Canine Eye Registration Foundation and Penn
Hip. Only certifications from these accredited organizations should be accepted as
insurance of health clearances for any canine genetic diseases and disorders.
Fun and games, always a thrill, even when little Summer shows off her flying skills.
