Hi, I'm Leonie M.
Hello we are Stephen and Leonie Mcleod-Robertson. We have been showing and breeding Cavaliers for the past 15 years. We live on acreage with our 17 year old daughter and a multitude of Cavaliers who live inside with us. We have all four colours.

Our Breeding Practices
Behaviour and socialisation
Our puppies are raised with our adults amongst the hustle and bustle of our busy household once they are out of the whelping box . Depending on the age they leave us, we like to take them to markets for the purposes of desensitisation of people, crowds and different noises, as well as smells. We believe the key to happy, confident and well adjusted puppies is early socialisation. Our puppies are well loved members of our household…
The dogs being used in our breeding program are screened for: - Mitral Valve Disease by a qualified cardiologist Dr Geoff Nicolson: BVSc (Hons) MVETSTUD Dipl. ECVIM-CA - Eye diseases by qualified (FAVSC) ophthalmologist Dr Michael Bernays: BVSc FANZCVS - DNA tested for Curly Coat/Dry Eye (CC/DE), Episodic Falling (EF) and Degenerative Myelopathy (DM)
Our home is especially designed and set up around our dogs, where we spend all of our time when at home with them in our family room. Cavaliers are bred and designed to be companion dogs, therefore, we ensure they are always with us and included in our day-to-day lives. They even have their own climate controlled bedroom which is important for hot summer days and cold winter nights!
Included with our puppies
Our puppies come with a 'puppy pack' with various bits and pieces to ensure a fluid transition to their new home. Before they leave us, they are Microchipped, have had their first vaccinations, wormed every fortnight and will come with an ANKC pedigree on 'limit registration'.

Jehannah Cavalier King Charles Spaniels conducts 4 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.
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 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).
