Kaliak Cavaliers started in 1993 when we purchased our first cavalier Ch Maranty Digger Jack (in photo gallery past) as a birthday present for my wife with the hope of possibly showing our little bundle of joy. From there we purchased another male Ch Elfking Algernon Mouse for myself to show. This is where we met Janice Paznikov (Elfking) & started showing for her & thus acquiring our first bitch Elfking Arabella, the rest is history. We had our first litter with Annie in 1998, which produced our first two home bred champions Ch Kaliak Rebel Reilly (Reilly)& Ch Kaliak Paddys Revenge(Katie). Both these dogs took out many class in group awards & specialty awards along the way .In 2000 Reilly was Oz Dog breed leader for NSW only to be out done by Katie for the title in Dec Xmas show of that year.
We had huge success with these two dogs in our NSW Cavalier Club Specialties . Katie won Junior Point Score in 1999, with Reilly getting Runner Up. Reilly getting Runner up senior point score in 2000 & 2003. Katie on maternal duties in 2000 wasn't shown but she returned in 2001 to get Senior point score in 2002. Due to the success of these two & Ch Kaliak Arabellas Pride ( Annies 3rd litter) who achieved 3rd in Junior point score in 2001 we managed to win with Elfking Arabella (Annie) the clubs Brood bitch trophy in 1999,2000.2002 & r/u in 2002 quite an achievement of which we are proud.
Katie has also produced us some lovely puppies, like Ch Kaliak Fancy Pants now 2.5 yrs old herself too doing well at club level, at our open show 2007 getting R/U BIS. She has equalled her mum's achievement getting equal first place in NSW Clubs Senior Point Score 2007. And Kaliak Strike It Lucky (a Reilly daughter) has taken out equal first place In NSW Clubs Junior Point Score for 2007 ,and also gained her title in late 2007. In 2009 we also took out first place in NSW Clubs Junior Point Score with our B/T Kaliak Michaelangelo.
From our first few litters we have now established the Kaliak line with second generation lines linking back to our first three cavaliers in both the Blenheim and Black & Tan colours. 2008 posed an interesting era for us as we planed third generation matings with two of our second generation stock. 2009 saw our B/T line take the forefront in Mickey a much loved gentle young man.Also the addition of Kaliak Uptown Girl & Ch Kaliak You should Be So Lucky.
Early 2010 we saw the results of our 4th generation stock in Kaliak Kraker Jack & Kaliak Le Femme(both of whom have won a Best class in Show at an All Breeds show level).
Early 2012 saw our first 5th generation stock in Kaliak Giuliana who at her first 3 shows achieved Best Baby Puppy in theToy Group such a promising start .
We have had many happy memories with all our children whom you may like to view in the photo gallery pages ,enjoy.
