The founder and owner of Cavaliers @ The Spa is Patrisha Wayne. As a former high school history and economics teacher, I learned two very important skills, PATIENCE and CONSISTENCY. It is those two skills along with lots of Tender-Loving-Care that has made Cavaliers @ The Spa Ltd. the success that it has become.
After retiring from a career in teaching, I decided to give my cavalier, Peakaboo, a present of a little cavalier puppy named Peri. At first Peakaboo would have nothing to do with Peri. However, eventually they became inseparable buddies. In retirement, I had quality time to spend with my dogs. We read together, that is I read and my cavaliers cuddled next to me. We watched television together, that is I watched and they lay across my lap being petted. Peakaboo even helped me garden. I planted flowers in the spring and she pulled them out of the ground. My two cavaliers taught me to understand the nature, temperament and basic personality of Cavaliers. I learned to absolutely adore these precious creatures.
One day a cavalier breeder friend asked if I would care for a puppy until the new owner returned from a month long business trip. I agreed and enjoyed the fun of having a puppy in the house. Soon after the gentleman returned from his trip, he recommended me to a friend that needed a “baby-sitter” for his cavalier. Cavaliers @ The Spa Ltd. was born. In 2003, we were incorporated. Word spread that Cavaliers @ The Spa Ltd. was a dog boarding retreat that provides a home setting for all guests. Because only cavaliers are spa guests, the atmosphere is calm and stress free.
