Welcome to Millbrooke Cavaliers! We are nestled on 59 acres approximately 20 minutes north and east of Grand Rapids.
Our Cavaliers are a part of our Family - we romp and play with them every day, and of course, have lots of snuggle time. We thought long and hard about breeding, and did a lot of research, before we undertook the challenge. Each of our dogs was chosen for specific characteristics, which we felt are an asset to the breed. We have five female dogs for breeding, three Blenheims and two tris. We have two tricolor males and a Blenheim for breeding. We keep our retired breeding females as pets. Our Cavs are tricolor, the classic black and white with tan accents, and Blenheims, a rich chestnut on a white background. We also have a retired Ruby female. We do offer stud service to approved females.
All of our adult dogs have been heart and eye certified by veterinarians who have sub-specialized in Ophthalmology and Cardiology and our breeding adults are re-certified every year. All of our puppies are also eye certified before they leave us to go to their new home.
Our puppies are very special to us. They are raised lovingly in our home. We hold and cuddle them each day from day one, which results in a very friendly well-socialized pup. They begin to interact with the other adult dogs when they are about four weeks old, so they are also adaptable to other pets that may already be in their new homes.
All of our puppies have their dew claws removed at 2-3 days of life. They are wormed several times, have their first shots and first heart worm dose before they leave us. We continue with age-appropriate vaccines and monthly heart worm prevention as long as they are with us. We provide a one year health guarantee against potentially fatal congenital conditions.
about us picture We sell most of our puppies with a limited registration, which basically means that they may not be bred or compete in AKC breed competition. The puppies may be registered with the AKC, which we strongly recommend. AKC registration provides your pup and you with information on raising and training your Cav, as well as opportunities for certain events, i.e. Agility Contests or Therapy Dog Certification, etc. We will occasionally sell puppies with full registration, for showing / breeding rights.
Cavaliers are indoor dogs and we insist our pups are raised as such. That having been said, they are very adaptable to a variety of environments, from apartments to farms. They are sturdy little dogs, but as with all small breeds, young children should play with them only under adult supervision.
A word about male Cavaliers... Many people feel that they would rather have a female, but a neutered male is virtually indistinguishable from a female as far as temperament goes. It has been said that female Cavaliers love their owners, but that the male Cavaliers are in love with their owners.
We hope that you find your perfect pet and find the same happiness that we have!
