Start with an obedient, social, friendly dog who considers itself
part of the family
this loyalty, hunting ability, and an eagerness to please
in the easy-going personality and tireless retrieving talent
of a Labrador, and the poise and playful nature of a Setter
with beauty and the ability to get along with other pets and
this all down into a medium-sized, powerful dog
off with an unstoppable “wiggle butt”
…and you now have an English Springer Spaniel. In
our opinion a Springer combines the BEST qualities of all of
the dogs that have touched our lives.
family’s original love for dogs began many years ago when
we purchased our first “family” dog, an Irish Setter
puppy, shortly after our two oldest children were born. A few
years later we purchased a Labrador Retriever puppy, and again
our family fell in love!
that point on our family of twelve has always been home to either
a Setter or a Lab, usually both! We never thought that there
could be another breed of dog that possessed the qualities we
so adored. That is…until we met our first English Springer
these fantastic dogs is a family affair which not only includes
our young children at home, but also extends to our adult children
starting their own families. All of our dogs are our family
pets and live a well cared for, well loved life with individual
attention in one of our homes.
We enjoy participating in therapy
work with our dogs as well as in AKC
competition. We also, from time to time, enjoy casual hunting
with our dogs. When we rarely do breed a litter it is likely
that one of us has a specific purpose/goal for one of the puppies.
Our goal is to produce very versatile dogs with the best temperaments.
While it may not be as popular in the show ring today, we breed
to preserve the traditional look and characteristics of the
English Springer Spaniel. Our dogs are of strong European lineage
(but also AKC registered) with many Champions behind them. Above
all we strive for puppies that easily adapt, are very empathetic,
and form an unbreakable bond with their forever families.
All births are diligently attended in a room of our house that
is designated and dedicated solely to the needs of our dogs.
(with a few human comforts as well) All of our puppies are raised
with early stimulation and appropriate
socialization. We apply a conservative
vaccination schedule and wean all of our puppies to raw
food. We feel that this guarantees that our puppies are
sound in mind and body when they are ready to join their new
keep in mind -
of our puppies are spoken for in advance of their birth, often
well before we even breed our dogs. If you would like to be
considered for one of our future puppies, or be placed on our
waiting list for an upcoming litter, please let us know.***
