As Breeder, owner-handler and Trainer at Jadestone Cavaliers, my passion and my long term goal is to develop my Cavalier breeding program while striving to breed for Cavaliers of correct Breed type and good structure, with always dedication and concern for good health and good temperaments that reflect the correct characteristic of the Breed.
Jadestone is located in Southern California at the foot of the San Gabriel Mountains, the County of San Bernardino. This picturesque little valley is situated just north of Cajon Junction in the Cajon Pass, 15 minutes from Wrightwood Village and Mtn. High Ski Resort.
My goal is also to produce Cavaliers competitive in the show ring, both in CKCSC USA, (CKCSC is the original Cavalier Club and Registry in the UK and USA), and AKC shows.

The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel of today is the direct descendant of the small Toy Spaniels seen in so many of the pictures of the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries.
Toy Spaniels were quite common as companion pets of the Court in Tudor times but in England it was under the Stuarts that they were given the Royal title of King Charles Spaniels. History tells us that King Charles II was seldom seen without two or three or more at his heels.
During the reign of King Charles II the period was called the Restoration period or the Cavalier period, hence the name Cavalier was added to the name and they became known as the King Charles Spaniels. They have been recorded in paintings and tapestries for centuries together with the aristocratic families who enjoyed their loyal companionship.
Today’s Cavalier is directly modeled on its royal ancestors but this did not happen without the effort of an American fancier, Roswell Eldridge. Mr. Eldridge traveled to England in the early 1920’s hoping to buy two spaniels.
