A little about us
Top Meadow Cavaliers was founded in the Midwest in 2007. We relocated to sunny San Diego in 2013. We are a small show kennel that occasionally has charming AKC and CKCSC USA registerable Cavalier puppies available to wonderful, loving homes in the San Diego, Orange County, Los Angeles, and San Francisco areas -- and everywhere in between! We have also placed puppies in Arizona, the Midwest and the East Coast. (We do not ship.)
Our Cavaliers have free run of the house, and when they are not busy warming up the sofa or keeping the backyard free of sinister squirrels, they are inspecting the kitchen floor for the careless mistakes we humans often make.
Dedicated to the breed
At Top Meadow we are committed to preserving the standards of this wonderful breed.
We work hard to produce Cavalier puppies that look and behave the way a Cavalier should. We focus on health, temperament, and conformation. We are members of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club of Greater San Diego, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club of Greater Chicago, the Badgerland CKCKC, the American Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club the CKCSC USA, West and Midwest regions. These clubs have a strict code of ethics that we observe in the best interest of the breed.
To happiness and good health
Healthy Cavaliers are happy Cavaliers, which is why we take the health and lineage of our kennel very seriously. Our Cavaliers are heart and eye certified annually by veterinary specialists (veterinary cardiologists and ophthalmologist). We feel strongly you should insist on current (within the year of breeding) tests of both the sire and the dam of any puppy you are considering. We screen all our breeding dogs for Episodic Falling/Curly Coat and Dry Eye. Hips are cleared through the OFA. Patellas are checked on all Top Meadow Cavaliers.
And if that is not enough, our Cavaliers also enjoy a yearly wellness exam by our local vet to make sure they are in tip-top shape and nothing has been missed!
A part of the family
Our dogs are members of our family and are treated as such. They join us on hikes and at the beach and love going to lunch to catch up with friends. They are the first on the couch for family movie night. We place our puppies in homes where we know they'll receive similar love and attention.
