We are using MidLake Cavaliers - they are fantastic, and I recently met another MidLake owner in my neighborhood that recommends them. Here is their website:
I was also originally referred by several people to Chadwick - they just werent expecting a litter in the timing we wanted.

I just adopted my 1-year-old boy from a highly reputable breeder in Pennsylvania--my father and stepmother also got theirs from her. I live in Manhattan as well, but she's incredibly professional and worth the trip!

Thanks so much

This is vital w/ any dog breed. I'll have the vet do it or the groomer (who 
usually doesn't do it as we'll) as soon as you see your dogs scooting its 
usually time or overdue! Please stay on top of this so you don't have to go 
through this where anal glands are bursting. It's our responsibility to be aware 
of this stuff. Good luck Angelo & Jackie!

>>> Liz I disagree with your technic on expressing your pups anal glands. Using 
latex gloves is bad for your pups anus and could lead to hemorrhoids. I use my 
bare hands to express my pups anal glands at least once a week. The smell should 
not be that bad.. I think that must be specific to your pup. Do you feed your 
pup human food from your dinner table? Some owners feed their pups from the 
dinner table. This not only spawns "beggars" but leads to overweight pups.

Cav's anal glands yourself. After spending $90 on two different occasions to 
simply walk into our vet's office and have them express our dog's anal glands in 
all of 30 seconds, the next time he was scooting (on a weekend when our vet's 
office wasn't open), we turned to YouTube and found a very helpful instructional 
video on how to do it ourselves. It is done completely externally. It is 
probably one of the grossest smells you'll ever experience so I highly suggest 
doing it outdoors or in the bathtub and wearing disposable latex gloves. (Also, 
if your Cav has the long butt feathers that our guy has, you'll definitely want 
to be sure to shampoo him/her very thoroughly afterward.) We've done this 
ourselves three or four times over the past couple years and the scooting has 
stopped immediately. And of course, it should go without saying, but if the 
liquid expressed looks suspect (e.g. bloody), if your dog seems to be in pain, 
if there appears to be an infection, or if the problem continues, you should not 
hesitate to go to your vet's office immediately. I just wanted to point out that 
expressing your dog's anal glands yourself is a cheap and easy option for dogs 
who are otherwise healthy but have simply had some irregular bowels that may 
have resulted in their anal glands not being expressed naturally.

That is usually an indication we should make a special trip to the vet to have 
the glands expressed.

her about 5 years ago - one of her anal sacs burst after forming a an abscess.  
I don't know how large hers was, because I didn't notice it before it burst. The
