    My son and daugher in law are wanting to buy a ruby bitch puppy. I have always had cavaliers and have instilled in them the importance of buying from health checked parents. We are in oxford but can travel. Does anyone know of any ready in the next couple of months, thanks! (not sure if this is in the right place!)

    so they fancy something different - just to make me jealous!!

    A really good website is Cavalier Matters for pet Folk, Full of advice for owners and prospective owners of CKCs and well worth reading throughly before looking for a breeder.
    The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel | Cavalier Matters: A Guide To Health, Care and Buying of Cavaliers

    Here is also Assured breeders for CKCs
    Kennel Club Assured Breeders for Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

    Under the Assured Breeders scheme Requirements for the CKC is current annual eye tests certificates.

    The following though are only a reccomendation and there is no checks on assured breeders that they carry out the following tests, but as you will see from the Cavalier Matters the following are big problems in the Cavalier health wise, so safer to find a breeder who does carry them out.

    1) Breed Club - Heart Testing (Mitral Valve Displaysia)

    2) BVA/KC CM/SM Syringomyelia Test.

    Further and more informative on Cavalier Breed Health on this website
    Cavalier King Charles Spaniel – Dog Breed Health

    The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Breed club
    The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club - Front Page

    Although the Cavalier King Charles American Breed Club the American Breed clubs are usually a good source of information as well.
    Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club - USA - Inc.

    Cavaliers have many health Problems, personally I would familiarise yourself with all the relevant problems and the tests available prior to breeding and select breeders who do all the health tests they possibly can before breeding.
