Hi, I'm Leeana L.

My name is Leeana and welcome to the Fredricos Cavaliers page! Fredricos Cavaliers is a small kennel located in Brisbane and we mainly breed the colours Black & Tan and Ruby. Within our breeding program​,​ we strive to breed and raise quality Cavaliers that consist equally in parts for temperament​,​ health​,​ type & overall soundness. In 2019 we were thrilled to welcome our lovely 'Turretbank Smarty (IMP FRA)' from a well known​,​ respected Cavalier breeder and Judge from France to contribute to our breeding program. We show our dogs on occasion when time permits but mainly at our local Specialty Shows where our Cavaliers do quite well under breed specialist judges. We raw feed our Cavaliers for many reasons and mostly those reasons are related to their health​,​ longevity and overall wellbeing. We believe diet and environment could be a contributing factor to the early onset of mitral valve disease. Our eldest Cavaliers are 6 in November and have been cleared by The Cardiologist by auscultation this year (2021) passing their heart testing. We breed only on occasion and proceeds from our litter go back into our breeding program and investing into the next generation. If you would like to be considered as a potential pet home for a 'Fredricos Cavalier' please feel free to contact us​,​ however​,​ please be aware that we screen potential families very carefully to ensure the best possible homes for our puppies. Please understand we do not sell our puppies for showing ​/​ breeding purposes or on main registration.

Behaviour and socialisation

Raised amongst the hustle and bustle in our living room our puppies are whelped and raised with love inside our home where we provide constant sources of enrichment to assist with their key development milestones. We are a busy household and the puppies are well desensitised to numerous house hold noises and are well socialised with young children as well as our other Cavaliers.

Additional Tests

Fredricos Cavalier King Charles Spaniels conducts 5 additional tests available for the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.

dna iconGenetic Test

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 Dry Eye

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.

Curly Coat

dna iconGenetic Test

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.

Degenerative Myelopathy (DM)

dna iconGenetic Test

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.

Episodic Falling Syndrome

stethoscope iconPhysical Test

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).

About the breeder

A little about us

As well as being the passionate and loving breeder that I am, I work as an insurer broker where I am fortunate enough to take my dogs to work - Alfie ‘Fredricos Zoom Zoom Zoom’ is the company’s ambassador for the ‘Pet Industry’ portfolio.

Why we got involved in breeding

I have grown up with Purebred dogs all my life. I saw a photograph that stuck in my mind of a beautiful show Cavalier to which I fell hook, line and sinker. I purchased my first pet Cavalier, Belluspaws Mary Poppins ‘Maddie’ in 2012 who taught me the ropes of the breed. By late 2013, I had dived into the breed head first and researched Cavaliers extensively, learning about their health, breed type, structure, movement, temperaments and lineage. In 2014 I purchased my foundation bitch ‘Jehannah Fairy Dawn’. Learning about the breed has taken many years of late nights chatting with breeders and judges of Cavaliers from all over the world, as well as breeders in person locally in Australia. Along the way I had self taught grooming and show ring presentation after a lot of trialling of different products and grooming methods. My kennel prefix is derived from my first and greatest companion dog who grew up with me by my side.

Our special touch

We take the holistic approach to raising our Cavaliers with a focus on feeding fresh raw food diets which we are happy to help educate Cavalier owners about.
