About Us

Bob and I have had and bred Irish Water Spaniels for over 30 years. Our dogs have excelled in all venues of competition – field, hunting, obedience, rally obedience, tracking, agility and conformation.

My first Irish Water Spaniel was one of the few Irishers to run in field trials in the 1970’s.  He was the 4th IWS to earn a WC and the 1st Ch CD WC IWS.  His legacy was carried on in his progeny through the years. Our youngster – the 6th generation of AKC All-Around IWS is Paddy – Ch Saracen Blue Thunder on the Marsh CD JH – Group winner, multi group placer.

All of our Irishers are our family companions and hunting companions.  We are passionate about hunting and competing with our dogs in field tests.  Bob and I are hunters, amateur field trial/hunt test handlers and AKC licensed hunt test judges. We both have been active for years in obedience teaching/training and competition, tracking events and the field tests. Bob has trained and helped our friends train pointers, retrievers and spaniels for hunting and test competition.

As breeders we feel that sound, healthy, birdy, sweet tempered dogs are a cornerstone to our breeding program. To that end our dogs are tested in AKC field tests  and all breeding stock has been cleared by OFA and CERF. We have litters occasionally. The pups are raised in our home, socialized and started with basic training as puppies.

None of the dogs we keep are sent to be professionally trained. All are trained by Bob.

All in all, we have great fun with our dogs. We have made many friends in the dog world. Hope you enjoy our web site.
