Introduction

SIDEWAYS is a small home/hobby kennel in Turku, in Finland - and when Sara moved back to Finland and to Helsinki, we have a SIDE-office ;) there.

We registered the affix Sideways after our home street name (which is literally 'sideway' in Finnish) in the year 1994. We breed wholecoloured Cavaliers (Black & Tan and Ruby) with lots of enthusiasm but in small scale. We have had Cavaliers since -92 but before that we have had shepherds (GSD and Rough Collie). We are active in showing and other doggy-hobbies like obedience and agility (but only for fun... :). In our two homes we have only a few cavaliers, and the rest of our dogs (co-owned or placed) are placed to live with their own families, where they get the attention they deserve. We strongly believe that every dog deserves a chance to enjoy its life as a member of a family in a good home and a lavish amount of individual attention (not to mention a lap to sit on! ;)). We are not breeding dogs for a living and do not expect to make a profit out of it. We do however aim to enrich and improve the breeds we love so dearly and bring forward our dogs' best qualities in the best possible ways.

We have signed the Finnish Kennel Club's breeder agreement and have both passed the Finnish Kennel Club's breeders' courses 1 & 2. We have also been accepted as members to the Finnish dog breeders' association (Sukoka).
