We have owned and bred some of Australia’s most awarded winning Field Spaniels. We were proud owners of the current Australian breed record holder for Championship All Breeds Best in show wins by a Field Spaniel which still stands today.
“The Field Spaniel is one of the Dog Worlds best kept secrets, hidden under a noble and beautiful exterior is a loving, funny companion and a skilled, intelligent hunter. Part of this breeds lack of fame is due to the extremely low numbered registered in the world. Originally bred in England as a medium sized, yet substanial , hunting spaniel, this dog would enthusiastically work all day in heavy brush or in the water. The Field Spaniel remains and excellent working spaniel that is always impatient to wet down it’s webbed feet. Now days, though, it is more often found in it’s favourite place, with it’s family. Whether at home or in the field, this breed needs to be useful and can also excel at jobs such as obedience, therapy, tracking and agility. The silky, glossy coat is flat or slightly wavy, with long feathering on the ears, leg, under body and under tail. The Field Spaniel comes in black, liver, liver roan, and blue roan. Weekly brushing keeps the coat shiny and tangle free, but some trimming of the hair between the foot pads and inside the ears may also be needed. The sturdy, well - balanced Field Spaniel averages 18” tall at the shoulders and weighs on average 25 kg. Although the Field Spaniel is wary of strangers and will bark an alarm, it is affectionate with it’s family and a good companion for children and other animals. Early socialization and training are essential for this breed, whose personality may range from reserved and attentive to devilish and independent.”
