Welcome to Cruisin Cavaliers!

My name is Cindi Rackler and we are located in Oklahoma, USA. I am a member of the ACKCSC, CKCSC-USA and the CKCSC of North Texas. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Programming and never dreamed my profession and love of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels would lead to meaningful volunteer work within several Cavalier King Charles Spaniel clubs. I maintain the CKCSC of North Texas website (www.ckcscnt.com) and the Cavaliers of the Midwest website (www.cavaliersofthemidwest.org) along with several other websites including our own.

I bought my first Cavalier King Charles Spaniel back in 2005 from Reita Swinney of Crystalridge Cavaliers who is now retired from breeding and showing. My first Cavalier King Charles Spaniel was a Black & Tan Male named "Cruiser" (2005-2017). He was such a special boy...he became my first AKC Champion, he also earned a title in agility along with a title as a therapy dog. AKC Ch Crystalridge's Cruisin Rackler CGC, TDIA, TGI. Our kennel affix comes from Cruiser's registered Name.

AKC CH Cruisin Mickey Mouse

On December 5, 2008 I produced a litter co-bred with Marily Mayfield of Mayfield Cavaliers. Two of the Three offspring went on to gain their AKC Championship title. Our AKC GCH Cruisin Minnie Mouse; "Minnie Mouse" (pictured above) was owner handled through the bred-by class to her AKC Championship title and I continued to owner handler her through her Grand Championship title. Today, Minnie is my constant companion at home. She sleeps with me at night hogging most of the leg room in the bed as she lays cross-wise across the bed right where my legs would normally be.

On September 25, 2013 Minnie produced a black & tan male that also went on to capture his title: AKC INT CH Cruisin Mickey Mouse (pictured on the left).

On August 31, 2015 I produced another litter with "Minnie Mouse". Our ruby boy from this litter went on to gain his AKC title also.

AKC CH Cruisin Mighty Mouse is owned by Marilyn Mayfield and Stella Spradley and he lives in California with Marilyn. He gained his championship title on March 8, 2018.

We also kept Cruisin Lady And De Tramp (Lady) from this litter and you can read more about her on the Our Cavaliers link.

For the last 13 years my breeding and showing focus has been with whole color (black & tan and ruby) Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. A mature Black & Tan Cavalier King Charles Spaniel portrays the most elegant and royal picture in the show ring and those Rubies can stand out with their always-so-happy clownish personalities. Over the last 3 years we have added a Tri Color (Lilo) and Blenheim (Bling) to our family so now we do breed all four colors.

In September of 2017 a new adventure started without me realizing the changes that would come over the next couple of years. My granddaughter began showing our Cavaliers at the CKCSC shows. After a few Cavalier Specialty shows we ventured over into junior handling in the AKC shows. The transformation Kylie made launched us into a whole new love for the sport of dog showing. In 2018 Kylie showed a 13-inch Beagle named Katie and qualified for AKC Nationals in Orlando, Florida. When Katie turned ten we retired her and began training a Smooth Collie puppy named Rihanna pictured below.

CH Wild Wind's Shine Bright Like A Diamond

In October 2018 we welcomed into our home a smooth collie puppy named Rihanna. Rihanna came from Wild Wind's Collies in Colorado and was bred by Michelle and Laura Bergstraser and Annessa Towell. Rihanna is out of GCH CH Wild Wind's Special Forces (Tracer) x GOLD CHG CH Wild Wind's Don't Stop Believing CD RN NAJ (Journey). Rihanna gained her AKC Title at 10 months of age and is currently working on her Grand Championship title. Rihanna is also ranked in the top 5 towards the Owner Handler series and will compete at the AKC Nationals in Orlando, Florida in December 2019.

Thanks to Shelley Bergstraser, our wonderful breeder of Rihanna (Smooth Collie) we were able to borrow a 6 year old Smooth Collie for a few months.

Meet GCH CH Wild Wind's Practical Magic call name "Phoebe"

We will keep track of this new pairing on our Junior Showmanship page.

In June 2019 we met a Papillon who was looking for a Junior Handler to continue his Grand Championship title with. Kylie fell head over heals in love with this little fur ball and another pairing was formed. We look forward to seeing what the future holds for this new team also.

We will keep track of this new pairing on Chayim's Personal Page.

Thank you Adrienne Wolfson for sharing this sweet boy, CH Azurestar Living Life To The Fullest (Chayim) bred by Adrienne Wolfson and Julia King.

While our showing and traveling now resides more with Kylie and her smooth collie's, Rihanna & Phoebe and her Papillon, Chayim, we are still breeding Cavalier King Charles Spaniels since Cavaliers are the breed I know more about and genetics and pairing dogs for breeding takes years to understand the genetic make up of different lines in each breed.

We also deeply love our Cavalier King Charles Spaniels as they are the very best snugglers and their most favorite spot in the house will always be my lap. Kylie's beagle and collie worship her as both beagles and collies have a true love for children over adults.

We hope you will enjoy our website. If you are new to the breed of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels we hope our website will help educate you about our very affectionate breed. Our Cavalier King Charles Spaniels have truly been a blessing in our lives and I cannot imagine spending a day without snuggling a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.

While you are cruisin through our website be sure and check out our Online Store "Cruisin Goodies" where we sell dog snoods and note cards and we plan to add hair scrunchies and a clothing page for Junior Handling clothes as Kylie outgrows things we will sell them to other juniors as we know just how difficult it is to find appropriate outfits for younger and smaller sized junior handlers.

Now, let's go cruisin through our website....
