About the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel (CKCS), otherwise known as the Cavalier, is an affectionate and intelligent toy dog that gives endearing devotion to their owners. Cavaliers are not kennel dogs --- they are lap dogs, and are wonderful companions. The CKCSs want to love you and be loved, and to sleep in a soft bed - preferably your bed.
Stuarthome has proven dedication to the Breed by Service & Philanthropy
Stuarthome is a small, dedicated AKC hobby show breeder/owner of the Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. We are located in the state of Michigan. On this website, you can read about Kathryn Yonkers love for the breed as demonstrated by her dedication to the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel by her service & philanthropy. Furthermore, this personal website exist to showcase and celebrate Stuarthome's beautiful Cavaliers and to educate the public about the breed. Thank you for taking the time to visit!
Stuarthome's primary goals are to have healthy, beautiful show quality Cavalier King Charles Spaniels as our companions and to serve the breed as a member of the ACKCSC Health Committee. Furthermore, Stuarthome's philosophy is to only breed our Cavaliers once or twice in their lifetime after completing health screenings by board certified specialists so retrospectively, we had very few litters through the years and know those bloodlines very well. Subsequently, any puppies in our litters are carefully reviewed as Stuarthome's show prospects potentials as first and foremost as our family members. After the show potential assessment, a puppy might be available as a pet to a home approved by us. Any pets will be placed as companions with spay/neuter agreements. Overall, people that have our Cavaliers are considered as part of the Stuarthome's extended family. If you complete the Stuarthome's questionnaire, we will keep the questionnaire on file.
Stuarthome is a voting member of the American Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club, Inc. This club is the AKC Parent Club for the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel in the United States of America.

About 'Designer Dogs' ... and the Myth that they are Healthier
The findings from surveys performed by the late George A. Padgett, DVM, Veterinary Pathologist & Professor Emeritus, College of Veterinary Medicine, Michigan State University and author of Control of Canine Genetic Diseases: Mixed-breed dogs have more genetic diseases than purebred dogs. There are 215 known diseases in mixed breed dogs, with 71 percent of them having defective genes. The idea that a mixed-breed dog is likely to have less genetic diseases than a purebred is a misconception.
If you want a mixed-breed dog, please go to a rescue or the animal shelter.
There are wonderful mixed-breed dogs in rescue, waiting for loving homes!
We support rescue. We do not believe in breeding 'designer dogs'!
