Welsh Springer Spaniel

Sporting Breed

Dixie and Bella from the Heatherstone Kennels

The Welsh Springer Spaniel is a loving family pet that is great with children and usually comfortable with other pets.  OK for apartments as long as it gets daily exercise.  Probably better suited for a rural environment where it is allowed to run in a confined area.  Lack of exercise can lead to an overweight, bored companion.  Maintain their coat with weekly brushing, and always check their ears for dirt or infection.

We STRONGLY recommend that you get your dog from a respectable breeder or rescue organization.  Pet stores and Internet sellers may get their dogs from Puppy Mills that normally breed only for profit, not quality or concern for the puppy or its eventual owner.
If you would like help locating a breeder or rescue agency near you please E-Mail PGAA ( ita408@comcast.net), and let us know your city/state and the type of dog you are looking for.  Do not assume that PGAA has qualified all of the breeders or rescues on this site.  Do your own check of each breeder or rescue — be sure that you are comfortable with the organization before you buy, adopt or turn-over a dog.
