Our intention is to breed only when we want to keep a puppy for ourselves, to improve the quality of the dogs we own and to produce healthy puppies of sound conformation and temperament.
As breeders, we have taken the decision to look further afield to increase our own options for the future by bringing youngsters over from Sweden. We have high hopes for them and are grateful for the opportunity to own such beautiful dogs. Many Scandinavian kennels produce springers of super quality and do not compromise over health issues. This was one of the reasons that we were so keen to introduce these lines to our own small kennel. It is our policy to be honest and open about all health issues that affect the breed and our dogs will be tested for the relevent diseases using tests that are currently available to us. We are Kennel Club Assured Breeders, a scheme established to encourage and promote responsible breeding practices. See the link below for further details.
Please also see the website of the Southern English Springer Spaniel Society (www.sesss.org) for comprehensive information on the health issues affecting the breed and how they are being tackled. There is a also a link at the bottom of this page to a Health Test Result Finder. Listed there you will find the results of tests carried out on any dog that is registered with the Kennel Club. If a dog is hereditarily clear for a condition (ie. from two clear parents) it's result may not be listed - you will need to check with the owner, and remember that there are some health problems for which there are no tests at present.
Peasblossom puppies will be born and reared in our own home and will have the opportunity to experience the sights and sounds of a normal household. We look forward to finding loving, permanent homes for all our babies and to provide their new owners with long-term support and advice.
If you would like to offer a home to a Peasblossom puppy, or sometimes we have older dogs available too, please feel free to contact us. Alternatively, if you feel that a much older dog would suit your family more than a young puppy, perhaps you might consider the possibility of adopting one of the many English Springers currently in welfare rescue kennels.
