Jewelcroft’s primary goals are to produce healthy, well socialized and sound puppies. All Cavaliers used in my breeding program are MRI, heart, eye, hip and patella tested by board certified specialists prior to breeding.
I spend my spare time learning pedigrees (and the health and temperament history behind them), going over Cavaliers, talking and learning from those in my breed and those outside it. I raise each litter as if I gave birth to them and spend an equal amount of time finding them loving forever homes. I only put puppies on this planet that I think will be the healthiest (mentally and physically) and nicest examples of their breed.
I support my breed in health, rescue and education. I am currently the Fundraising Director (Health and Education Committee) of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club of Canada and an active member of the Cavalier Fanciers of Southern Ontario. My previous positions in these important breed clubs have included Vice President, Membership Director, Secretary and Quotes and Yearbook Editor
I support each family who chooses one of my Cavaliers and let them know they are now a part of our extended family. I am there if one needs to come back and will aggressively pursue the return of one of my dogs if its in the wrong place. I hold them when they arrive and leave this world, not only my own, but my brethren in the fancy. I share my knowledge and socialize my dogs so that they will be the advertisement for my dedication.
I don’t keep track of the money and time I put in to my love of dogs, it would not be true measure of how I feel. I support my friends in the fancy, because it takes a village sometimes and only WE know how things are for us.
The price I charge for my puppies is never profit, but investment in the next generation. I will not be ashamed of who I am, I work hard at being a good dog person and encouraging others to be the same. I am a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel breeder and I am proud of it.
