If I was considering breeding cavaliers in a couple years what would be your advise of where to begin?

I got my 1st baby, a female, from Mrs. Tilson at leaningtreecaninekids 2 years ago. She is  a Blenheim and beautiful and smart and PERFECT. She is also spayed.

We recently got a male from Mrs. Holly Crumley. He is a tri and perfect in every way. I've been thinking about breeding and researching it for some time now & have decided to go forward. I've found some online classes for "canine husbandry" so I thought id begin there.

Any thoughts and advise would be greatly appreciated

I was correct in thinking that Sunshine was carrying a small litter. She only had one little boy. But he is a beautiful solid Ruby. He is three weeks old now and is starting to walk about. My concern is that he does not have any siblings to romp and play with. As the weeks roll on he will need a playmate. Has anyone had a single pup before? Please let me know if you have any tips for me about raising a single pup. He has plenty of human socialization by adults as well as children, my concern is for his litter socialization. I have a one year old Tri Cavalier and I am hoping that she will be able to play with my little boy and teach him some of what he needs to know. But for right now he is way too small for the kind of play she will offer. Any suggestions are welcome.

My little Sunshine is 2 years old now and pregnant with her first litter. At 6 1/2 weeks she is not very big and really just looks bigger than normal rather than looking pregnant. But I am very excited about her having a litter of pups. The sire is also a solid Ruby so I know these pups will be just beautiful. I have my whelping box set up and cannot wait for our big event. By the looks of her it will not be a large litter, but even a couple of puppies are going to be enjoyed just as much as if there were a whole pack of them.

I just lost a litter of 9 because the vet said lets wait a few more days.  In those 5 days everybody died.  He never suggested any imaging(turn out he didn't even have any ultra sound.  I knew she was sick so I went directly from his office to the University ER.  They did an emergency hysterectomy because the uterus was septic.  I would like to punish that vet for killing 9 puppies.  Any one have any suggestions ?

As with people-it does not always go as planned. I have been fortunate--my first attempt with our sweet Lucy has been successful! This Fri. night she whelped 8, yes 8 pups--5 girls and 3 boys--all Bleinham and beautiful to us! She has just been "textbook" as our vet says! We, my husband Robin and I, were right by her side the whole way! She stared at 8:30 pm and ended at 1:30 am! So far, all is healthy and fine and we are counting our blessings and saying our thank you prayers. I could not have asked her to do a better job! All have already been to the vet, within 24 hrs., and have been checked.
Life has been kind---we could not be any more excited! I have breed Saymoyed's, Maltese, and Labs. But there is something special about Cavs. You can just feel their love, 24-7! What a joy! I am proud to be able to "spread that love"--in a healthy and responsible way. And yes Lori, it is like waiting on a grandchild--we have our 3 due in Mar.! It is going to have a lot of pups to play with!!!! LIfe will be pretty interesting!!

Each one is its own adventure. Our first three welpings ended up cesarean. All for different reasons. Made each litter a exciting time thinking it would be first welping.

I am in the middle of our first attempt at breeding a litter. Wow, I feel like a grandma waiting for a grandchild.....

Welcome to the Cavalier Breeders Group. The group is designed to allow communication between Cavalier Network members who have an interest in breeding cavaliers. Kind of like a mini network inside the big Cavalier Network. There are three communication areas in the group.
1) The Comment Wall – A place to post ideas, general information and comments for the whole group. A place to get the word out and share ideas but lacking the structure, topics and feedback of discussions.
2) Group Discussions – a mini discussion forum contain inside the Breeders Group and for/between Breeder Group members vs the main site Forum where discussions are open to everyone. A great place for targeted discussion inside the Breeders Group.
3) Group Email – Send an email to all the group members. A great way to contact everyone in the group with important information. Please no spam, for sale, puppy wanted, or other type of junk mail that is to you benefit and not the members.

The Group section of the Cavalier Network is a great tool to communicate with other members with similar interests.
