    Default Really Fed up

    Feel really fed up. in a few months we have decided to add to our family with a cavalier dog, Holly will then be around 16 to 18 months old. I have begun to try and look for a good breeder. Ive just spoken to someone who represents a reputable cavailer assocication, this person is supposed to help you with good breeders. She said a dog would be no good with Holly being a bitch, I explained Holly had been spayed, She made me feel like I had committed some crime and said she had a thing about poor cavailers being spayed, then said she couldnt help me ( more like she didnt want to). Quite worried now about who to talk to next. Feeling sensitive and down, like Ive done something horrible to Holly, who I really love. Im just trying to do the right thing and find a good breeder. Thanks for listening, had to share with others.

    That's a terrible way to treat you!

    Most people have their pets spayed or neutered...I wouldn't worry about that one individual, most would appreciate that you care so much!

    I don't even know where to begin with that woman. First of all, spaying is very important for the health and safety of your girl if you have no intention to breed. Second, if this woman really is "representing" good breeders, she would hope that only HEALTHIEST dogs are bred, not just because they carry the title of "cavalier". Third, She has no right to make you feel guilty for making a conscious decision to the best you can for your dog. FOURTH she obviously doesn't know anything about cavaliers because they are amazing companions together and they know their own. I have 2 males and I am adding a female and I can guarantee that they will do fine together. I would find a new contact and don't get discouraged because of one incompetant person.

    Thanks for the support, she just made me feel bad. I live in England , the strange thing is on their webb site they advice us all to stamp out puppy farms and buy from good breeders, yet this one person is who you contact to get advice on who to go to. I will keep trying, thanks

    Yes you do get breeders who can make you feel like something that the cat brought in sorry cat When I was looking after Mattie died I rang one up that did that to me were I got Rocky from she was good and listen to what had happen without judging me were abouts are you in the uk---Aileen and the gang(Jazzie--Barney--Sam)
    cavaliers at the bridge Mattie and Rocky & Sam & Jake
    Better to light a candle for one lost dog than to curse the darkness of man's indifference. Saving just one dog won't change the world but it surely will change the world for that one dog.

    I too had exactly the same happen to me in the UK, i phoned a lady just like you ,a lady to do with the breed club who was supposed to point me in the right direction regarding getting a well breed cavalier in my area. She was of no help at all and made me feel i was doing somthing wrong. I wonder if it was the same person?? Where in the UK are you? because maybe i could help PM me if you would like.Heather x

    i spoke to a rude woman after contacting a breed club i will pm you both i wonder if we connacted the same area and don't let that woman put you off you did the best thing i plan on getting lady spayed as soon as she has had first season. Another puppy would be wonderful and i am sure that Holly would love the companionship. Don't worry the perfect breeders waiting out there for you.

    I would think others from England on this board or at Cavalier Connection could help you find a breeder. That is the silliest thing I have every heard! Regardless of what country your from, all countries acknowledge getting a dog spayed (unless they are breeding) is good for their health and obviously prevents unwanted litters of puppies on the moral side.

    My suggestion is to contact someone else at the club, because they should be informed about her attitude and incorrect knowledge! I'm sure other members would not hold her view and should be informed how she is not a good representive for them to use.
