As owner and proprietor of Rutherford Cavaliers, I have had a long love affair with animals

Rutherford Cavalier

Welcome to Rutherford Cavalier King Charles Spaniels! Established in 1983, we are a small home kennel dedicated to breeding quality Cavaliers for loving families and for the show ring. Located in beautiful rural Bucks County, Pennsylvania, we are 45 minutes from Philadelphia, and about 2 hours from New York City.

For more than 25 years, our goal has been to breed Cavaliers that conform to the breed standard, that are healthy, and that have that wonderful, happy-go-lucky temperament that is the hallmark of the Cavalier. This dedication to quality has lead to many awards and accomplishments in the show ring and many, many repeat customers and referrals for wonderful companions for the family.

To that end, the health and temperament of our dogs is of primary importance. We health test our breeding stock to make sure that their hearts, eyes, patellas, and general health are excellent. We strive to breed dogs that combine the best of English and American bloodliines, so that pet owners and dog show enthusiasts alike end up with fabulous companions. Our original breeding and show stock came from England, the birthplace of the Cavalier.
