If you are looking for a selective non-commercial breeder
with a goal of developing the essential behaviors found the excellent field
springer spaniel gundogs you should take a few moments to learn about us at Windmill
Hill Kennels. Windmill Hill Kennels’ goal is to continue the traditional quest
for breeding of cooperative sensitive field springer spaniels suitable for
non-electronic collar and positive reinforcement training. Our goal is to
provide the traditional hunter of upland birds and waterfowl an all-around
excellent companion gundog, suitable for living in the home and seriously
hunting in any terrain, in any weather, for any birds within the safe physical
limits of a field springer spaniel. In the words of Ray Holland in his book Seven
Grand Dogs, “These dogs were all finished craftsmen in the hunting field,
plying their trade of finding game, pointing or flushing it, and then retrieving it.
However, they were more than that – they were loved by their folks and they loved their folks."
Donna and Tony Welcome You to Windmill Hill Kennels
This website contains information about what we are doing in the world of Field Bred English Springer Spaniels. We will be posting information about past and future AKC & NAHRA hunt tests and hunting trips, planned breedings, training we are doing, and of course about the puppies that will comprise the next generation of first class versatile home and hunting companions.
Our girl "Tempest" is as beautiful as she is talented. She is the quintessential hunting and home companion that has wonderful disposition, a desire to please, and instincts for all types of bird hunting in various types of cover. We believe her lines should be carried on, so others can have the many rewarding experiences we have had and continue to have.
Tempest's Final Breeding Have All Been Placed
-However, We Often Know of Other Pups from other Fine Breeders, So Contact Us if You Are Looking and We Will Pass Along that Information to You-
Tempest was bred with Salmy's Powerhouse "Diesel" over May 8 - 9 - 10. The pups were born on July 13, 2015. This will be her final breeding and she bore a great litter of pups - Four Boys and Three Girls.
All the Pups are in Their Forever Homes
Thank You for All Your Interest
We'll be posting their progress from time to time
on the Puppy Page.
Next Litter will possibly be Summer 2017 with
one of Tempest's daughters:
Bridget or Zoe depending on who gets a
Master Hunter Title First
Time to Go Hunting Now
Diesel shares all of the biddability traits of Tempest and is equally capable hunting and field trialing. Both have "Hall of Fame" dogs in their pedigree as well as many others with titles and awards. For these reasons we believe this litter will be exceptional.
The pups will stay with us for their initial conditioning and training for 9 weeks. So if Mother Nature is timely they will be ready to go to their forever homes around September 19th. Go to the "Puppies" to see the last litter and our training program
It has been a busy summer for us once again.
This is Salmy's Powerhouse "Diesel" who will be Tempest's Sire.
