Katie, who comes from a farming background, was first inspired to own a Cavalier, when as a youngster, she saw an official photograph of Princess Margaret, the Queen's sister, with one. Her dream came true in 1979 but it was not until 1981 that she began showing and eventually breeding. Fortunately both David and their daughter Naomi, were as committed as she was.

In the intervening years Katie has bred both American and European Champions. Her aim remains the same...to breed Cavaliers that are healthy, happy, well constructed and glamorous. Katie breeds all four colours and puppies are occasionally available to caring, loving show and pet homes.
