Breeder of Merit

 

We are located in the foothills of the Pacific Northwest's Mount Rainier area of Puget Sound, within a beautiful hours drive from either Seattle or Tacoma in Washington State. We have been active in the breed since 1994 under the Covington affix not just showing & breeding as a hobby but in breed clubs, attending seminars & educational events, mentouring and Championship Show Judging. In those 21 years, along with the  dedicated owners and co-owners of Covington dogs, we have bred or owned dogs that carry many titles in  CKCSC-USA, AKC & UK in the Confirmation Ring along with titles in Obedience, Therapy Work, Lure Coursing, Tracking & Agility, including the #1 Agility Cavalier in the Nation- 2 years running, therapy & even dogs used in actual Therapy Practices that help special needs children. Over the years, we have been reconginzed in the top 10  breeders of CKCSC-USA Champions and in the 2011 international publication "The World of Cavaliers". These days we are winding down quite a bit and spend much of our time with our retired Champions giving them the  best of their Golden Years we possibly can & enjoy every minute of it.  Our primary focus always has been & will be that these beautiful little dogs represent the cultural & historical legacy they were originally bred for "True Comfort Spaniels & the ideal companion for our familes. If you would like additional information about us or our Cavaliers  please contact us through the e-mail link on this site.
