We welcomed our new tri girl Maya about a month ago and she is just AMAZING!!!! The name Maya was chosen in honor of Maya Angelou.
So far no potty accidents, one minor chewing incident (which was my fault) and we are all just having so much fun bonding a getting into a nice routine. She just turned 5 months old and is in stellar health and temperament. I can easily see how many of you end up with more than one Cavalier.

Thanks ladies! Joan I give HUGE credit to the breeder for doing such a good job potty training and also credit my waiting to get her at 13 weeks which help avoid potty accidents at our house a ton!!! But yes she is an angel thus far!

It's nice to have someone post about the age issue as so many people want a puppy at 8 weeks and an alarming number of vets and sometimes trainers say 6-8 weeks is 'ideal'. But this thinking has greatly changed and anyone who has taken an older puppy -- 10-14 weeks now being considered good ages -- finds they have a considerably better-socialised and well rounded young dog, often with almost complete bite inhibition (eg no puppy nipping) and well on the way to being housetrained because they learn from the older dogs. Decent trainers now will say puppies at 6-7 weeks are simply way too young and often end up with behaviour issues and are particularly difficult to have around children. I fully endorse waiting and getting a far easier time with the tougher bits of training as well as a more well rounded puppy. Mum and sibs teach each other manners far more efficiently than a human with a pup does in those early weeks.
