Katie and Tim 2003
I purchased my first Springer when I was eighteen years old my freshman summer in college. I ended up sneaking her around for six weeks while I was living in the dorms until I closed on my house. I had no idea that everyone on campus knew I had her; it was relayed back to residential life that I had a puppy with me all summer in the dorms. I received a large fine (more than the cost of the dog)!

A Professional dog trainer once told me that Springers are addicting and you can not just have one. Now nine years later and eleven more dogs I am field trialing and breeding. With the ongoing support of my husband, I can not imagine doing anything else. I LOVE to hunt and train dogs. There is no more satisfying feeling in the world when your dog brings back its first shot bird. I have benefited from the knowledge of many veteran dog trainers that have made my field trialing and training experiences wonderful! Trialing on the circuit can be nerve racking but, with great friends to support me that is all I need.

I grew up with Springers in my family. My parents first “child” was an ESS named Sandy in fact one of my first baby pictures was taken with her. I have been breeding for years now and I love every moment of it. Springer puppies are the most precious creatures in the world; I am so glad that I get to be there when they come into the world and go to new families. I am all about promoting the breed to anyone who wants a great hunting / trialing / family dog. I know that I can provide puppies to anyone who is looking for a great English Springer Spaniel!
