Cedar, ruby, RALPH and anna
Cedar came to us in 2011 and was our first dog that we imported from Statesman Welsh Springer Spaniels, Georgia, USA. She is a fun, loyal, affectionate dog. Eager to please and easy to train, she has a wonderful temperament. She began Agility classes in 2016 and loves it!
Ruby joined our family in 2012 and is an independent, loving, energetic dog. Ruby has been shown in the conformation ring on Vancouver Island and in 2015 became a Canadian Champion. She has had several group placements, BOBs, BOWs and won Best Puppy in Group in 2013. She was number three Welsh Springer Spaniel in Canada for the year 2014. She has a RATI title. She also comes from the Statesman kennels. We are so grateful to Statesman for allowing us to enjoy these two great dogs.
Ralph is our boy from Ruby's first litter and has proved to be wonderful addition to the family. Ralph obtained a Best Baby Puppy in Group at the age of fifteen weeks. After several Best of Breed wins, in May 2016 he obtained a Group First at the Comox Valley Kennel Club show. The following week saw him finish his Championship with more Best of Breed placements, as well as Best in Group in the Breeder/Owner/Handler class. He has a RATI title and is enjoying tracking. He had his OFA health tests done in May 2017 and his results are hips: Good, elbows: Normal, Thyroid: Normal. The CERF eye test is also normal. Ralph gained his Tracking Dog title in October 21018.
Anna is our newest addition. She is from our "Rain" litter born on 21st November 2017 and we are looking forward to participating in different activities with her.
These dogs are family raised and live with us indoors in a warm, loving home environment. They love to spend time outside, whether it's 'helping' in the yard or hiking the trails of Strathcona Provincial Park.
Health and temperament are most important to us for our dogs and our goal is to produce healthy, happy family companions. Our dogs are CERF (Canine Eye Registration Foundation) and OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) health tested. Please note that we share health information on our website, register all breed-required genetic health test results with the OFA database and require health tests on all puppies, not just show prospects. ALL dog breeders can have health issues in their puppies and it is through this testing that the occurrance of health problems can be reduced. Further information on these tests can be obtained at www.offa.org
