Great Pedigree, Ex_Stab and Gremlin have seen the mother work, they will be kennel club registered, docked and dew clawed. We have 6 pups 3 dogs and 3 bitches, 3 have been reserved, (no sex preference yet) so its open house in a couple of weeks for these to be viewed. They will be ready to go on the 6th April.
Cost is £400 for dogs and £450 for bitches.



PM me if you are interested. I would prefer these to go to working homes but they are great with kids.

We have just taken a little one in. He's only 4 months old and spends half his waking life clamped onto the ear of the older dog. So funny, because she then can't nip him back so has to resort to 'ankle nips' to get him to let go!

Just think of the fun he would have with those lovely springer ears :lol:

I'm registering the litter now online, first time I've done that! Once you have one the second is easy, its the 8th or 9th that gets the neighbours talking!

True. Not to mention the family. "You must be mental to have another one, dogs are hard work!!!", "er, yeah, mum we know. We've already had one or two".

The problem with working dogs is by the time you need to have another dog to replace the one about to retire its too late and you end up with a season or so with no dog. I have them now 2 aged 10+ (retired effectively), 2 aged 4 to 5, 2 aged 3, 2 aged 2 and 1 aged 18 months. The 2 year olds are now at the point where some good training will take them from being just good beating and rough shooting dogs onto picking up and maybe even peg dogs. The next older pair are about as trained as they will be and both pick up and beat but also track. The nearly 5 year olds are their parents who now have a good 5 or 6 years work ahead of them before collecting the bus pass.
The 18 month one is a little shoite bag cross breed but fun and cute with it, he will take longer to train but I will have a few good years from him!

9 Is definetly enough! Maybe in a year or so we will add another bitch to the line by buying in. That will allow us to expand the line using our dogs.

My ESS had a litter of 8 just over 2 yrs ago. We advertised in the local pet shops (pets at home) and in the naafi but the best results came from the kennel club website.

We dont bother with the Kennel Club register as they never seem to work properly, I always tick the box on the application when registering though. The last 3 litters have all gone through the Friday ad and word of mouth.
Of this litter I have possibly sold 4 already.

I found the same with our last litter of Labs; sadly the last one, as my two old girls are now more than 6yrs old and I think 6 is about time to call a halt.

I'm lost in admiration for such a bonny litter but I can't say I envy you the sleepless nights, though - shooting bolt upright in bed at the slightest sqeak from downstairs. My missus threatened to banish me to a camp-bed next to the whelping box! :D

Hello ugly,

springers are fantastic dogs.
Twelve hours a day bouncing round in circles across Gloucestershire and then wanting to go back out for more.

My boy would love one of those young bitches to keep him company but he is not getting a girlfriend until he is fully trained.

Very fine looking litter,well done that bitch.

tangosix.
