My husband and I have had Welsh springer spaniels since 1975 and have been breeding under our Statesman prefix since 1979. We have bred many champions, group winners and placers, and a multiple best in show winner. Many of our dogs have done well at national specialties and in performance events. I have been hunting with my husband since the early 1970's. I believe that sporting breeds should be structurally and mentally sound enough to hunt for a full day throughout the hunting season.
I have been judging since 1998 and am currently approved for sixteen sporting breeds. I have judged specialties for many of my approved breeds. In early 2010 I had the privilege of judging Weimaraner and Welsh springer spaniel specialties in Australia and at the Auckland (NZ) Spaniel Club specialty.
