About Promontory Cavaliers...


I began my love of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels when our first Cavalier, Woftam Lollypop, came to live with us in 1998. Lolly, as she was affectionately known, won many Best in Match awards. She was the sweetest Cavalier we've ever known!

In 2001 I traveled to Molly Coaker's home (Homerbrent Cavaliers) in England to bring Homerbrent Zoey Promontory to the USA. Zoey and I began training together for the conformation ring! Zoey was shown at the benched IKC show in Chicago, IL in 2003 and won Winners Bitch &/or Best of Winners all four days! She was a Champion in one weekend! Zoey went on to produce my first homebred champion, AKC CH Promontory Casino, Cassie. She also produced AKC CH Sevenwoods Trixie Palmer.

AKC Champion Promontory Casino

Our first homebred champion was AKC CH Promontory Casino, Cassie.  She was out of our AKC CH Homerbrent Zoey.  Cassie was a blast to show as she was a go-go-go type of Cavalier!  She finished her championship easily.  Cassie lived to be almost 14 years old and although she has crossed the Rainbow Bridge she'll never be forgotten! 

Cassie at age 6 months, at her very first show.  She was slow to mature and is very much a puppy in this photo but look at that black nose and those lovely dark eyes!

Our Cavaliers are always our beloved pets first and foremost. They live in our house, underfoot, and we wouldn't have it any other way.

Our philosophy in breeding and showing Cavaliers is that it is a three legged stool which includes type, temperament and health. One cannot cut corners on any of these attributes or the stool will tip over!  So, we carefully plan before we breed to ensure that our litters will be healthy while also looking like a Cavalier should, based on the breed standard.

Below is a silly little video I filmed one day during holidays! Turn down your volume when you watch this!  LOL
