Balgaire is a modest hobby kennel situated on the beautiful Kitsap Peninsula
in Washington State. Its owner, Ruth Lerda was originally involved with
Pembroke Welsh Corgis and Shetland Sheepdogs, first exhibited in 1968 in
obedience and then in the early 70s in the breed ring. Teaming up with Janice
Stanton of Sesame Shetland Sheepdogs in 1986, together they produced 10
Corgi and 8 Sheltie champions. In 1993 a 2 year-old imported Cavalier came
into their lives and changed everything. Cavaliers are the only breed at
Balgaire today.

Balgaire’s focus is to produce sound Cavaliers in health, temperament and
structure. All breeding stock is health tested for heart, hips, patellas and eye
anomalies.
