       "Rough Shooting Springer Spaniels"

Windmill Hill Kennels is a breeder of Field Bred English Springer Spaniels focusing on the traditional "rough shooting" traits desired in a home & hunter companion.

Our Philosophy

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.

Her daughter "Briget" had a great litter the summer of 2017 and we believe her daughter "Zoe" will have great pups the Autumn of 2020. Woodbine's "Destine to Reign" Asher, MH will be Zoe's sire.

Zoe's heat cycle should be August 2020. I will be teaching from home this fall, so this will be perfect except there will be no hunting this season, but it will be worth it since this is Zoe's last chance due to age. Please contact if you wish to be considered for the Fall 2020 litter. 

We are proud to announce our next breeding - Fall 2020. Both dogs have "Bird Dog Hall of Fame" inductees in their pedigree. Both have been AKC hunted tested and hunted regularly for many years. Asher has placed many times in UFTA events. Most of all, both have lived and been loved in a home environment. We believe the matching should produce home and hunter companions with traits traditional desired in "rough shooting" bird dogs.   

We are in the planning and preparations for this litter this Fall (2020). Mother Nature dictating we expect the pups to arrive Mid October to Early November. We will keep everyone in the loop as things progress. These great pups will be ready for their forever 12 weeks later
Please fill out an application [Apply & Stories] and send us an email if you want to put on the list for the next litter.
We hope you had a great Fall hunting birds last season.
Due to COVID 19 cancellations of AKC Hunt Tests and UFTA events, I have been training from home. If you would like to see Zoe "in action" contact us to set up a time. We can meet in Northern, RI or Southern, NH.

The "Royal Family" litter of "Zoe" and "Asher" will be part of our Puppy Pre-K training and socialization program. 

They will stay with us getting much love, experiential learning, and introduction to needed basic skills for 10 - 12 weeks. When they leave for their new forever homes around Early January they will enter the ranks of home and hunters ready to learn and grow. You can learn about our training and socialization program on the "Puppies" page; as well as learning about our 3 previous litters.


We are Accepting Reservations from Families Who Want to Have Loving Hunters with Great Drive and a Gentle Temperament to Join Their Forever Homes


We'll be posting pictures of their progress with our "Bird Dog Puppy PreK" on the Puppy Page.
