Our Breeding Practices
Behaviour and socialisation
All our puppies are raised in our family living area with lots of interactions from the entire family. They are brought up around household sounds and noises. Once they are walking, we start encouraging outside play time and exploring our large full fenced backyard. Get to meet the other dogs, chickens and the ragdoll cats.
Health is ever so important in all breeds of dogs. We send our breeding dogs to the Cardiologist annually for heart reviews, ACES eye certificates, DNA full breed profile from Orivet, and Vet breeders' clearance certificates are done prior to breeding and also Prenatal Vet checks after breeding. Male dogs standing at stud are also Hip Scored to assure they are sound.
Lovely country home set on a double block with a very large lawn areas for play time. Our dogs have their own room, their own lounge suite and access to the backyard.

Cavalblaze Cavaliers conducts 1 out of 1 core health tests which RightPaw believe are most important to conduct for the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
A heart certificate indicates a breeder has had their breeding dogs declared free from common…
Cavalblaze Cavaliers conducts 8 additional tests available for the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
Congenital Dry Eye is a genetic cause of severe eye problems in Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppies. This disease is linked to Curly Coat Syndrome. Congenital Dry Eye is different from Acquired Dry Eye, which is a less severe eye disease that can develop in older dogs of many breeds. There is a DNA test available to identify if breeding Cavaliers are carrying Congenital Dry Eye or Curly Coat.
Congenital Macrothrombocytopenia (CM) is a mild disease which normally does not have any impact on an affected dog’s health or lifespan but can cause concern if noticed on routine bloodwork without knowing the cause. It is a blood disease resulting in low numbers of very large platelets. There is a DNA test available to identify if a breeding dog is carrying this condition.
This is a genetic condition affecting Cavalier King Charles Spaniels that causes severe skin, nail and eye issues, as well as making the usually long smooth coat tight and curly. Curly Coat is linked to Congenital Dry Eye disease. There is a DNA test available to identify if breeding Cavaliers are carrying Congenital Dry Eye or Curly Coat.
This is a disease affecting the spinal cord of older dogs, initially causing wobbliness and eventually hindlimb paralysis. It can affect a wide range of breeds. There is now a DNA test that can indicated if a breeding dog is carrying this disease.
This is a genetic neurological condition affecting Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. It causes sudden stiffening of the legs, often causing the dog to fall over and be unable to move. There is a DNA test available to indicate if a breeding dog is carrying this disease. The test is also recommended in Cavoodles.
An eye certificate means the breeder has had their breeding dogs examined by a veterinary ophthalmologist, to confirm they are not affected by any eye conditions which may be passed down genetically to their puppies. If relevant for the breed, it also includes running DNA tests to confirm the dog is not a genetic carrier of hereditary eye diseases, such as Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA). It includes breeders who have participated in the Australian Canine Eye Scheme (ACES).
These breeders have had x-rays taken on their breeding dogs to assess their ‘hip score’. Dogs with low hip scores have better hips and are less likely to develop problems in the future. Most large and medium sized dog breeds benefit from hip scoring to ensure they are unlikely to pass hereditary hip problems on to their puppies.
Dogs affected by patellar luxation have loose kneecaps that may pop in and out of the knee joint, which can be painful and even require surgery. Having a vet examine breeding dogs for patellar luxation can confirm the dog is not affected, and that their puppies are less likely to develop the condition. Patellar luxation is more common in smaller breeds.
About the breeder
A little about us
We are a small registered Australia National Kennel Council (Dogs Victoria) breeder of Pedigree Cavalier King Charles Spaniels located on the South West Coast of Victoria.
Why we got involved in breeding
Love the breed, their temperament and nature. Ideal family pets, compact in size, making them an ideal house companion. We started breeding after we lost our own pet to cancer. That was many years ago. Our mission is to breed healthy, sound dogs that are thoroughly health-tested.
Our special touch
We breed for health, temperament and beauty. All our dogs are raised in our family home with lots of interactions from our 4 kids, other dogs, cats and even a few chickens. Country life setting, they are family pets who live with life's comforts. Very socialised dogs, walked and groomed daily and when the time permits, we also enter the occasional local dog show with success.
