We are a small Kennel which, over a number of years, has been involved with Field Spaniels and Hunt Pointer Retrievers.

We have had a moderate degree of success in both Showing and Gundog Working Test Activities.

All our own dogs which have been used for breeding have been Health Tested (ie Hips, Eyes and Heart Testing etc.) in accordance with requirements and recommendations of the particular Breed Club.

Our interest in Health goes back to the early 1970`s when our Weimaraners were hip scored under the KC System of “CLEAR”, “BREEDER`S LETTER” or “FAIL”.

This form of grading led to a degree of dispute and confusion and it was not until the KC introduced the present numerical system of grading that hip scoring became the accepted practice within so many breeds today.

Whilst it is always pleasing if the results of our breeding produces successful Working and Show dogs, we are very conscious of the fact that most puppies are family pets for life and in many respects that is more important at the end of the day than all the ”First Prizes” in the World.

For your interest the following pages show a number of photographs of some of our dogs past and present.

We have always had a particular affinity towards the “Black” Field Spaniel and are delighted to note that this colour is once again gaining acceptance.

We are happy to discuss any of the breeds on the following pages.

Puppies sometimes available.
