Dog shows offer exhibitors an opportunity to have their breeding stock judged for quality. The goal is to produce puppies with superior qualities, including beauty and health. While we keep the "pick of the litter", you will get the advantage of a puppy that was bred to the American Kennel Club published Breed standard. A dog purchased from a hobby-show breeder is more likely to be "typey", that is, to look and act more like a Cavalier. In addition, the hobby-show breeder lives by ethical guidelines.
