For the name of our kennel we searched some historybooks. We lived in Duiven until February 2009, there we started our kennel. Altough we live now in Loerbeek, our kennelname stays the same.
The domicile Duiven belonged in the past to Germany. At that time the place was called "Thuva". If you pronounce "Duiven" in the dialect, then you hear the name "Thuva" there.
The place Loerbeek is located close to the German border in the provinse of Gelderland. Loerbeek is a small place close to Beek which is a boadertown (at the road A12 Utrecht-Oberhausen)
We own only bitches and we breed in all four Cavalier colours. Our first litter (was only one puppy) was born on the 20th of May 1993. There started our hobby. We breed only a couple of litters a year.
All the breeding stock is tested on heart, eyes, Patella Luxation and Syringomyelia (MRI'd).
Since 4th January 1994, our kennel is officially registered at the Dutch Kennelclub, Raad van Beheer op Kynologisch gebied in Nederland.
Besides our Cavaliers, we also have a Border Collie, named Meggan.
She is born in England at the Lonscale Farm and her official name is Meggan of Killiebrae. She is the leader of our dogs and if we go walking, she keeps the pack together. So for her, no sheep, but the Cavaliers.
