Hi Rachel! icon_welcome Glad to have you here. These boards are addicting and you won't find a better resource for how to locate a reputable breeder and learn about these wonderful dogs. Read as much as you can to prepare you for your search, and please please please do not buy a puppy from a pet store or from someone advertising in the newspaper. These are most certainly puppy mill dogs who are bred for profit only, and never for health, conformation or temperament.:(

Many people wait several months or up to a year or longer for a pet quality pup from breeders who show their dogs and spend ALOT of money and effort health testing their dogs. There is a wealth of information going into more depth on this site.

Good luck with your research and will look forward to hearing about your cavalier when the time comes!!!
