    Hi, I have a 15 week old Cavalier King Charles called Sandy! She is doing really well and is the cuddliest dog I have ever know, she gets on really well with my children and we will hopefully be starting puppy classes soon :D:D

    Welcome :) Pictures please? What colour is she? :)

    ETA: Just looked at your profile, and she's a real cute lil blen :) Gorgeous face :)

    Just a word of warning, Cav's like to snuggle soooo much, so make sure that she doesn't get separation anxiety when left alone :) So a few times a day, leave her on her own for a few mins :)

    I have crate trained her, she is fine when I go out and at night time in her crate. I have recorded her to make sure! I will just find some pics and post some.

    Ok :) We babied our Holls at the start, but she's come to realise that if we go out, she can sleep on the warm sofa with the sun coming in the window until we get home haha!!

    What are you feeding her on? :)

    Wainwrights puppy food mixed with a few biscuits that I can't spell! (Eukanuba??) This it what the breeder fed her and to me it seems a lot better than tinned stuff?

    WW is good :) Not so sure on Eukanuba.

    Our Holls was weaned onto Pedigree as it was easier for the new owners to get, but then we got given 1kg of Skinners, if we could find a stockist to change over to. However we now feed raw, and our Holls breeder has recently changed all her dogs to raw :)

    Holls is really cute, how old is she? Sandy has grown so much already, she was smaller than my tom cat when we first got her but now she is the same size. I got her partly because I have a house a boys so it's nice to have another girl around the house!

    Welcome :) It's amazing how quickly they grow and develop isn't it! And little girl puppies are great :p

    Love the name too - my grandparents have a sweet dog called Sandy.

    Aww, she is beautiful!! welcome to the madhouse!!:D
    (just ignore the banana-philia/phobia..we are waiting a new supply of meds for those afflicted then order will be restored!!:blink:)

    Such a sweet breed. Often see them in multiples, I think they are one of those 'easy to collect' types of dog!!;)

    You have a beautiful puppy, with a lovely name. We almost called Sorrel Sandy - because she came from Sandbatch, Cheshire.
