Nestling on the Western edge of Salisbury Plain, Battlesbury Spaniels are ideally placed to attend shoots both on the plain and the surrounding area.

As a gundog enthusiast (I'm not a professional gundog trainer and I don't train gundogs except my own) I frequently travel to the surrounding counties to attend training sessions, always looking to improve my dogs using both proven methods and new ideas.

BATTLESBURY SPANIELS came about as a result of me getting hooked about three years ago. I had owned a Golden Retriever, Becky for twelve years who was a pet and a wonderful companion. She lost a battle with cancer and when I knew that I was going to lose her I decided to get another dog to help. I had always wanted a Spaniel, not as a gundog as I didnt shoot, just as a pet.

I saw an advertisment for an English Springer Spaniel in Wales for just 120 so we went to have a look at her. And as result in December 2012 we had our first Spaniel join our family.

In March 2011 I went along to the Westcountry Gamefair and saw a working dog demonstration and decided at that point I wanted my dog to be able to do that, after all, how hard can it be, its only training a dog!
