Thankyou for all the replies.
My partner is guiding me in food and home training matters as he has reared all his own dogs from 8 weeks. The reason im looking into training classes is neither of us has had experiance in raising and training Cavalier King Charles. We both had and have Labradors and have home trained them in the basics.
We are considering showing the new pup if she is up to breed standard and also curious to see if there is much or little difference in training a Lab to a Cavi.

In response to Applesmom, here in the UK a puppy get 2 rounds of injections one at 8 weeks and the final one at 10 weeks.
I dont actually know the reason why, but each batch of injection fluid the vet gets are coded and both the puppys injections must have the same code.
This can be a problem if your getting your pup from some where a great distance from you as the batch codes differ from area to area and vet to vet.
It's easier if she gets both from the my vet.

Thanks agility K9 That clears it up and gives me a little more understanding as we do not have Ringsport classes here unless they are called by something else. We do have agility classes and obedience classes but our Ringcraft is for show confirmation only.

Thanks for that.

Hi Care of Charm If you are intending to show your cavvie puppy, can I suggest you teach the basic obedience at home from aoung age and take her to your local ringcraft to get the puppy used to being gone over and handled by strangers and also to socialise the puppy with other dogs as I originally said about 10 days after the puppies second jab.

Again I wish you well with your new puppy and if you do decide to show every success for the future.

I help train the puppy class at my local dog club and the kennel club rules are that puppies have to be between 12 weeks when they've had all there injections and 12 months from which you can go on to older classes.
But training should start at home from the minuite you get them, theres plenty of good books out there and you can go to your local dog club before taking your pup to watch and see what goes on.
Good luck with your new puppy

Seeing your pup won't have had any vaccinations when you get her I'd be very careful on the trip home as to where you let her go to the toilet. Perhaps have puppy pads to put on the ground for her to use if you have to stop for her.

Well she’s been home now for 5 days and had no problems settling right in.


We had been concerned that taking her from her mum then having a 5 hour (it turned out to be 6 in the end) drive might be unsettling for her. In reality she was a star, the journey was spent either sleeping or playing with the soft toy we had bought her. During the rest stops she trotted around the back of the van sniffing everything and wanting to play with the 2 Labs.
She’s as bold as brass and learning fast, we pleased at how quick shes getting on with life in our house hold.

Were going to start basic training at home and wait for her second injection, then head to class's.
I will get a pic up tomorrow after they have been uploaded.
