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.

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 is now 10 years old and is living with my very good friend Pat Courtois in Long Grove, IL.

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.
