We are a small ANKC (Dogs Queensland) registered show breeder of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, mainly concentrating on the whole colours (Ruby & Black and Tan). We are located in the North/Western suburbs of Brisbane. Our Cavaliers live inside our home 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. We choose to use health tested imported dogs, or dogs derived from imports to continue to diversify our lines.
In 2019, we were thrilled to welcome our lovely 'Turretbank Smarty (IMP FRA)' from a well known, respected Cavalier breeder and Judge from France 'Katie Sloan' to contribute to our breeding program. We are forever grateful for generosity to share him with us.
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 Massey University (New Zealand) for Curly Coat/Dry Eye (CC/DE), Episodic Falling (EF) and Degenerative Myelopathy (DM)
We are a hobby breeder breeding 1-2 litters per year.Our biggest interest is health and canine nutrition. Out of choice and for the health of our dogs, we feed Biologically Appropriate Raw Food (BARF) which is made up and prepared by ourselves. On the occasion we breed a litter of puppies, they are whelped and raised inside our home and from the moment they are born, they are given a lot of care, love and affection. We try to socialise them as much as practically possible by getting them used to all sorts of household sounds, socialising 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.
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 puppies are wormed every 2 weeks from birth 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'.
