We know about Family.
We love helping families like yours find the perfect puppy for their home. Blue House Cavaliers was started by me, Wendy Ward, a mother of six fantastic kids. If there’s anything I know about, it’s family life. I know that a new puppy can make or break the happy tone of your home. I am committed to helping you find the right dog for your lifestyle.
Why I’m a little late to the party.
Although we often had dogs when I was a child, I didn’t get my first dog as a grown up until my sixth child was four years old. I’m a mom. And being a mother to six wonderful, but totally normal (i.e. destructive, loud, energetic, sassy) children took everything I had for a lot of years. I’m not one bit sorry about that. If I had started with dogs sooner, maybe my focus would have been divided, and my kids would have suffered. They think they suffered enough, as it is. 😉
I started breeding Cavaliers in 2018 with a lot of optimism and naiveté. I’m STILL optimistic, but not so gullible. Mistakes have been made as I’ve tried to improve and learn. I’ve been breeding Cavalier King Charles Spaniels for four years now. It’s the second coolest thing I’ve ever done!
I’m pouring my well-honed nurturing, “helicopter-mom” skills into these dogs and getting up to speed on Conformation showing and OFA testing. Even in the beginning I never cut corners on veterinary care, socialization and breeding choices, and those decisions are taking my dogs to the highest level of health, temperament and beauty. I’m working hard with some amazing mentors to increase my dog expertise.
But I’m already an EXPERT on family life. I know that cleaning up messes, comforting hurt feelings and negotiating peace treaties are sometimes bigger priorities than walking the dog. You need a dog that really fits into your home. I want to help you to make the right decision for YOUR FAMILY. Because they come first. Period.
