Welcome to PRAMODA Cavalier King Charles Spaniels!
I am Leslie Paul and my husband is Richard Rennie. Our love of dogs in general, and Cavaliers in particular, has led us to this path – raising high-quality Registered Cavalier King Charles Spaniels.
Our registered kennel name is PRAMODA which means Joy in the ancient Sanskrit language. It is pronounced Prah – mow’ – dah. Our beautiful foundation girl is named Joy, so PRAMODA seemed a very fitting kennel name.
Richard and I are members of the Canadian Kennel Club, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club of Canada, and our local Prince Albert Kennel and Obedience club.
GOOD NEWS! AS OF OCTOBER 21, 2019:
Wow! What a roller coaster we have been on. When we did an ultrasound it looked like Joy had at least one puppy. When we did the x-ray we were told there were no puppies, but another false pregnancy, and Joy would likely never get pregnant again. We were heartbroken.
On the 18th Joy went into labour and delivered a stillborn ruby girl. That part is definitely not good news. Our hearts broke again.
The GOOD news, is that we can breed her again when she comes in heat in 3 to 6 months. Hopefully there will be more Joy puppies to love.
My husband Richard and I live in Saskatchewan Canada. We have both been dog lovers for many years.
One of Richard’s memorable experiences with dogs was rescuing an extremely thin, abused German Shepherd Dog named Boone. Boone thrived in Richard’s care and became a happy, healthy family pet. Richard trained Boone in obedience. Richard has also volunteered walking dogs for the Humane Society and the SPCA.
In the past I raised several litters of registered Border Collies. I was involved with sheep herding training, therapy dogs, and obedience. I was a professional groomer and veterinary technician for many years. I also taught professional grooming. During my years as a groomer, I recommended Cavaliers King Charles Spaniels several times to people with good homes who were looking for a sweet, easy to look after little dog. They loved their Cavaliers.
When we wanted a small dog, we decided to get a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, and we have not had a single regret.
What we love most about Cavaliers is their loving, happy disposition. They were bred to be lapdogs, and they do very well at that. They are also little sporting dogs who enjoy agility, obedience, rally obedience, scent training, and trick training. Many can become great therapy dogs.
Cavaliers are very bright and easy to train. We use positive training techniques and these little dogs love to work, learn, and of course, play. They love fetching, playing tug, or cuddling with each other for a nap. We call that a ‘Cuddle of Cavaliers.’ They also love having a cuddle and nap with us.
At PRAMODA Cavaliers, our goal is to produce quality, well-bred puppies who will complement the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel breed. As a small Cavalier breeder, we will have at most one litter a year. Our puppies will be raised in our home, provided with high quality food, socialization, and loving care. PRAMODA’s other, equally important goal is to place our puppies into homes where they will be loved and cared for.
******** Joy will hopefully be bred again in October 2019. Check under ‘Puppies’ for more information.********
