Rafferty wins his 13th CC & Best of Breed as well as Gundog Group 4 at SKC!!!!
We are Dave and Jacky Mitchell and we live in the south-east of England with our springers.
Dave has been involved in the breed for more than thirty years, breeding and owning champions under the Heulyn affix. He has also succeeded in training dogs in the field to full champion status. He judges the breed at Championship level and has been lucky enough to judge our breed overseas on three occasions.
Jacky started out in the breed under the Summerstone affix but in 2005 started afresh with Dave with a new affix, a different approach and some exciting ideas for the future. We have looked further afield for inspiration and have been thrilled that our first dog from Sweden has achieved more than we could have dreamed!
Our aim is to breed English Springers of show quality with a focus on good health and temperament. We will try to retain the breed’s working ability where possible and strive to produce happy, healthy springers that are a pleasure to own.
We hope you enjoy your visit to our site and look forward to hearing from you.
