Looking for a Cavalier puppy? They certainly are a delight! Cavaliers are easy natured dogs who require moderate grooming and exercise and are best known for their expert lap cuddling skills.

It’s nice to meet you, I’m Wendy Maisey and operate Dawnaquinn Kennels located in Calgary, Alberta. I breed a few times a year and keep a wait list of approved puppy homes.   cavaliers@dawaquinn.ca


I have been breeding dogs for over 40 years, am an agility enthusiast and a CKC Approved All Breed Conformation Judge. I always breed for health and type and have produced some of North America’s all-time top conformation and performance dogs in both Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, and in the past with Doberman Pinchers.

Our Cavaliers come in all four colors, though we specialize in wholecolors (black & tan and ruby). I’ve been known to say wholecolors are our whole world! Cavaliers do have health challenges. As an avid fancier and preservationist, I go to extreme lengths with regular health testing (eyes, hips, & heart), along with optimal nutrition and veterinary care.


Berlin is the man of our house. He’s available at stud to approved girls.

Ch Dawnaquinn We Take Berlin wins the Canadian National Specialty from the 9-12 class. The first wholecolor to acquire this win. He also was BOW at the Cavalier Club of the Midwest and won the Cavalier Club of Canada Sweepstakes.


I’m based out of Calgary, Alberta Canada where my dogs have daily runs in open fields and nearby rivers, lounge on the deck in the summer or cuddle up with me during the chilly winter days.

Interested in a puppy, breeding to one of our dogs or booking me for a judging assignment?
