Our pups are sired by our ruby Magnum (Amancio Magum Opus) or our Black and Tan Freddy (Arundell Freddy Mercury) and their dam will be one of our beautiful Ruby or Black and Tan girls. All our dogs are purebred Cavalier King Charles Spaniels registered with DogsVic (Victorian Canine Association). Pups are placed on Limited Register (family pet home, not for breeding or export).


Pups are examined by a qualified experienced Veterinarian at 6 - 8 weeks of age to obtain a Certificate of Puppy Health.  It is very important to note that purchase of your pup is conditional on the outcome of this veterinary examination. If any health issues become evident at this examination, you will be contacted immediately. We will replace the pup with another similar one if we have one available that suits you, or we will refund your deposit and progress payments in full.

We have built up an excellent reputation over the years, and it is very important to us to maintain the highest standards. We do not send dogs to new homes unless they are 100% healthy and they are well socialised and psychologically sound. Please take your pup to your own vet within the first week to be examined again so you feel assured of their excellent health.


Your pup will need somewhere warm and secure to sleep, perhaps in a bedroom near a family member. The bed need not be expensive or fancy. A plastic pet carrier or sturdy cardboard box is fine. Woollen blankets hold heat well and does not become too hot. You can often get these at charity shops. Buy a couple, then wash and air them alternately.  For the first few weeks, puppy wake time will be around 7am and sleep time will be around 6pm. 


Puppies love toys and playing! It is fun and stimulating for them. Toys do not need to be fancy or expensive, but a variety of different items will provide mental and physical stimulation for the pup, and provide a focus for playtime as you get to know each other. Make sure they do not have parts which can be chewed off and swallowed.  


Our pups are raised on XP3200, a premium dry food that provides all their nutrients. It is available from pet shops supplied by Pet Pacific,  such as Pet Stock. As pups grow, a complete good quality dry food around 22-25% protein is needed for their good health. They may be given doggy treats for training purposes, but please no biscuits, cake or chocolate. These are people treats, not doggy treats.


Arundell pups are 'demand fed' and you can continue this if it suits you. This means that you do not need to feed your pup at a particular time each day. You can leave out two bowls, one with dry food and one with water, and the pup will eat when hungry. Cavaliers fed this way from their early weeks do not overeat and are more likely to maintain a good weight which is important for their heart health. Make sure you have a container of fresh water available at all times. A clean container of any material is fine, but try to find a relatively shallow one which is shaped wider at the bottom than the top, so your pup cannot step in it and spill it.

Please do NOT ever give these foods to your pup:

Milk (Except puppy milk)

Cooked bones of ANY kind


Spicy foods or onion



Our pups are vaccinated at 8-10 weeks of age. You are given the Certificate of Vaccination on Collection Day. Pups need to be vaccinated again at 12-16 weeks of age. Until that time, we encourage you not to take your pup anywhere where there may have been unvaccinated dogs at any time.


When pups are microchipped, their details recorded on the Central Animal Registry database. Notify CAR online when your pup comes home to give them the new address. If your pup is ever lost, the finder takes them to a vet or pet shop where their microchip is scanned, CAR notified, and you will be called. If you are not home, they will call us. Please take the further wise precaution of having your phone number engraved on a metal disc attached to your pup's collar, so the finder can call you direct.


Our pups are wormed weekly from 4-12 weeks of age, then fortnightly from 12-20 weeks with Drontal Puppy Worming Liquid. After 20 weeks, they can be wormed monthly with an adult worming tablet.
