Traditional English Springer Spaniels

Recommended Posts

Folks Ive been searching for an old styled springer for years now but haven’t come across any.

im looking for a pup for next year from the larger style of dogs that can work day on day out and are the size of modern labradors.

does such a springer even exist anymore? Can anyone recommend a breeder?

 

thanks

This is my boy Jack, As big as a lab, brave in any water and a nose the drug squad would be proud of, he’s 30kgs and square like they were 30 years ago,and you are right, they are not about like they used to beDB5A6FB6-793D-4552-AABB-3CDE7C3754E5.jpeg.b476aa7905e729a3ffabca1ed6027a88.jpeg

My springer is from modern trial lines, he’s just gone over a year old and is just a tiny bit smaller than a bitch lab. He’s got a bit of filling out to do yet but I wouldn’t want him too big. 

 

Ive seen some that are very stocky and heavy set but they’re not pretty to watch, it’s like a pig plowing through cover. Rather a dog with brains over brute force.

My 4yr old "gus"  came from Grantham  smarter than me. better pedigree, more proud,  only slows down after the first 25 miles, a joy to be with

He's a nice looking dog and that's a nice looking spot mate :) How big is the dog? He looks sturdy! 


Do you have that whole island to shoot yourself? lol

He looks stunning. What’s his breeding? 

Theres a few FTC in his history. but i think he's just from working stock, I can PM if you want the contact number of the breeder

Hes 22" to the shoulder. [I dont know if this is big]  doesnt carry much weight though, seems well suited to the heather
