Our Club provides this list to help potential Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppy buyers locate a breeder in their area, to help breeders find wonderful homes for their Cavalier King Charles puppies, to educate new Cavalier owners about the breed, and to inform them about our local Cavalier breed club in Houston.
While all of these breeders are regular members of our club, the club does not guarantee that all of them will meet your personal standards. Therefore you must take the responsibility to do your own research.
