In The Beginning
We bought our first Cavalier from England in 1996, and started to get involved in obedience training from about 1998. In 1999, We were given a taste of conformation shows by our friend, Gopi Krishnan who subsequently became the exclusive handler of our Top Winning Cavalier, Asian Ch Mal Grand Ch Lechevalier Owen At Lacavara and co-owner of some of our best Cavaliers.
After showing and winning Multiple Best of Breeds and a Reserve Best in Group, we retired our first Cavalier, Mal Ch Clipperdown Nell Gwynn At Lacavara (Imp. UK) from the show ring in 1999 as she really is only a lovely pet who goes to the odd show.
At the same time, our serious search began and through the help of our friends Gopi Krishnan and Tabatha Buckley, we approached Mrs. Margaret Franze, one of the top Cavalier breeders in Australia for a Cavalier sired by her sensational Top Dog, Eng Ch Aust Grand Ch Loranka's Dream Lover At Lechevalier (Hamish).
We were entrusted with our first Cavalier show dog, Owen in April 2000 who immediately started his sensational show career in the country and subsequently became the Top Toy 2000 in Malaysia. His achievements include winning Multiple Best of Breed, In Group and In Show Specials at many All Breeds Championship Shows in the country.
Over the years, Mrs Margaret Franze continued to send us many of her lovely cavaliers, amongst others, Aust Ch Lechevalier Michaela, a Multiple Best Of Breed and Royal Show Winner sired by Hamish out of Lechevalier Coquette. In 2005, another pair of Lechevalier Cavaliers, namely Lechevalier Samsom (grandson of Eng Ch Lymrey Royal Reflection of Ricksbury) and Chevalier Cleopatra also arrived in Malaysia to further complement our breeding program. Within the the same year, Eireannmada China Doll, the lovely girl sired by Aust Grand Ch Gramarye Golden Gift also arrived in Malaysia as part of the Lacavara family.
As Lacavara only breeds on a limited basis, we are relatively small, and we are constantly looking for good Cavaliers to complement our breeding program for the future. Occasionally, we may have puppies available for very selected loving homes.
