Did You Know?

The Field Spaniel is one of Britain’s Vulnerable Breeds, with the highest number of puppy registrations in the last five years only 80! The Vulnerable Breeds list was created to highlight breeds at risk of disappearing and it is a shame the Field Spaniel is not more popular, as being calmer, they are often far better suited to family life than the more popular Cockers, Working Cockers or Springers.
