Before contacting us
about a potential puppy, please read the following information. The web site contains information about puppies on other pages.
Nothing is cuter than
an English Springer Spaniel puppy. However, this breed is not for
everyone. Before you decide to purchase a puppy please research
the breed carefully. It is essential that you purchase your puppy
from a responsible breeder. You will find information on English Springer Spaniels, behavior,
hereditary diseases, and other topics on the ESS
Info and Information pages on this web
site. You will also find information about
responsible breeders on
Breeding page. The Purchasing a Puppy page has information on how to purchase a puppy responsibly. The English Springer Field Trial Association
web site is also a good source of information.
We occasionally have
puppies available to approved homes. We breed only when we want
a dog to continue our breeding program with or to compete in performance
events. Even though we might not always have puppies available,
we are always willing to answer questions about puppies and Springers
specifically. We are in contact with other breeders in our area
frequently. If you need assistance finding a responsible breeder,
we would be glad to forward your contact information to those with
Our goal is to produce
the healthiest puppies possible. Before breeding, all breeding dogs
are clear, at that time, from the more common hereditary disorders:
thyroid function in the normal range, seizure free, passing OFA
hip and elbow x-rays, and clear CERF exams.
are raised inside in a household environment. They are handled frequently
every day to assure that they are well socialized. When they are old
enough, puppies are socialized with people, children, other dogs,
and in strange environments. Basic puppy
manners training is started. At seven weeks the puppies are
given a personality profile to help determine basic personality.
At eight weeks the puppies are evaluated for structure and conformation.
Around eight weeks they see a veterinarian ophthalmologist to screen
for eye disorders. Puppies are examined by a veterinarian for general
health, started on a vaccination program, and micro-chipped for
Since we attempt to match
each puppy with the right family, we have developed a Puppy
Questionnaire to help us get to know the potential owner(s)
of one of our puppies. Our goal is that each puppy gets just the right family and that each family gets the right puppy. There is no first pick, second pick, etc. We work to match each family with the puppy who fits in best with their personality and interests.
The return of the questionnaire does not
obligate us to sell you a puppy. Any information you provide by
answering the questions will help us to help you select the best
potential puppy for your lifestyle should you purchase a puppy from
us. Please DO NOT fill out the questionnaire unless we have puppies
available. The form is accessible for your information and to help
you prepare to purchase a puppy. If you are interested in a puppy
from us, please check the web site under latest news or email to
find out our plans for future litters.
sex and color of a puppy are of secondary importance to individual
personality. When placing puppies into their new homes, we take
into consideration the length of time you have requested a puppy
and your request for a male or female. Although it may be possible
for you to have a choice between several puppies, we have had very
good success matching puppies with their new owners based on your
information, observation, and personality testing. Our primary goal
in placing puppies is that each puppy gets the right family and the new owners get the puppy just right for them.
Puppies go to their new
homes around 10 weeks of age. All companion puppies are required
to be spayed or neutered between twelve and eighteen months of age and will be
registered using AKC's limited registration form. Your puppy will
go to its new home with health information, feeding requirements,
and a written agreement.
The information available
on this page is only a portion of the topics that will need to be
discussed prior to purchasing a puppy from us. Feel free to contact
us if you have any questions about our breeding program or our puppies.
