Who We Are

Athercroft has been home to generations of accomplished Cavaliers for over 30 years. We are proud of the many grand championships, obedience titles, performance titles, junior showmanship awards and National Specialty wins of the Athercroft Cavaliers. We are proud to be recognized by AKC as Breeders of Merit. We are most proud, however, of the wonderful Athercroft Cavaliers that have enriched the lives of their owners, friends and communities.

‘Athercroft Cavaliers’ is recognized by and registered with the American Kennel Club (AKC). We are members of the American CKCSC, the Blue Ridge CKCSC and the Middle Tennessee CKCSC.
