We are an ANKC (Dogs Queensland) registered show breeder of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels mainly concentrating on whole colours (Ruby & Black and Tan). We are located in the North/Western suburbs of Brisbane. Our Cavaliers live inside our home, are taken to work with us and are loved dearly beyond measure.
Within our breeding program, we strive to breed and raise Cavaliers that are equal in parts for temperament, health, type & overall soundness. Our Cavaliers are from local and imported lines and are shown on occasion when time permits. Our Cavaliers do well placing at Specialty Show level under breed specialist judges.
Out of choice and for the health of our Cavaliers, we feed Biologically Appropriate Raw Food (BARF) which is made up and prepared by ourselves.
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 testing by the Animal Health Trust (AHT in the UK) for Curly Coat/Dry Eye (CC/DE) & Episodic Falling (EF) and;
- DNA testing by Massey University (New Zealand) for Degenerative Myelopathy (DM)
On occasion, when we breed a litter of puppies they are whelped and raised inside our home. They are given a lot of care, love and affection from the moment they are born. We try to socialise them as much as practically possible by getting them used to all sorts of household sounds, with our other Cavaliers when they are old enough and other human contact inside our home - generally family and close friends whom are also breeders. The puppies are wormed and they receive their vaccination and microchip at 6 weeks of age which is performed by our vet - Rosewood Veterinary Services.
If you would like to be considered as a potential 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. Our Cavalier puppies are sold to responsible homes with a mandatory 'Non Breeding Spay/Neuter Contract'.
