RSPCA Gala Day (Petersfield Post)
A summer garden party
The team collect for a local hospice!
The Clever Cavaliers Dog Display Team was formed in 2002 by Dee Phillips and Cavalier owning friends in West Sussex. The plan was to show the public how bright these little dogs are and how they are just as clever as the larger breeds one normally sees performing. A whole host of colourful props are used. The dogs show off elements of obedience, tricks and agility and they also have skateboard races and interact with the audience. They display once a month, and so successful have they become that they are always booked up over a year ahead!
Over the last fourteen years the dogs have appeared on TV many times, including 'Blue Peter' and 'Smile'. They have also featured in articles for newspapers and magazines including 'Hello' magazine and even on the radio! For four years running they displayed at Crufts and also have been at Discover Dogs in London. In 2010 they appeared at the prestigious Cavalier Championship Show at Blenheim Palace.
The Team do not charge for displays but ask for a donation which over the years had gone to 'Cavalier Welfare', but latterly to aid research into some of the diseases affecting the breed, particularly Syringomyelia. To date they have raised over £8000.
