We would like to give you an introduction to our life with the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. As you surf through the pages of our website you will find everything you need to know about these great little dogs. We give you a brief look into the breed's history, care and maintenance for the Cavalier, our daily lives with the breed and a little Dog show knowledge too.
Signature Kennels is located in Atlanta, Ga. We specialize in breeding, owning and handling top quality Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. All of our Cavaliers are shown in the American Kennel Club, "AKC" as well as the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club USA. Of these two dog show clubs, the AKC is the original club for registered show dog competition and the CKCSC USA is responsible for the first registration of Cavaliers in the United States. While there are other show clubs in operation around the country, these two clubs have proven to provide the highest level of competition in showing Cavaliers. Simply put... we have to breed a better dog in order to compete and WIN.
In additon to showing our Cavaliers, we are also active in local and national kennel clubs. The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club of Greater Atlanta, "the AKC Club", and the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club USA, "The Old Club". Both of these clubs are actively participating with it's members to provide the knowledge required in order to breed a healthy Cavalier that is fitting to the breed's standard.
Why did we choose Cavalier King Charles Spaniels?
Really they picked us. Our lifestyle is one that fits a smaller dog, with a great disposition, that can hang out on the couch or run all day playing fetch. At first sight this little dog melted both me and my husband with those beautiful eyes and soft expression. When we first witnessed them in the show ring, we were captivated by their beautiful flowing coat and effortless gait.

Breeding Cavalier King Charles Spaniels
We do not breed enough to be labeled as a high volume kennel for the breed. Our purpose in breeding these little dogs is to produce top shelf specimens that are capable of competing at the highest levels in the show ring. This takes a great level of control and experience. This knowlege comes from our association with those that compete at only the highest levels, combined with our experiences over a few decades of breeding dogs for show dog competition. "While they can all be healthy, they can't all be the highest quality show dogs." This is where our puppies become available as great pets.
