Buying a Welsh Springer

Buying 1Please remember that buying a dog is a major commitment. You will have to devote time, money and commitment to a dog for a period which may be as long as 15 years.

A Welsh Springer is an active dog which, as an adult, needs enough of the correct kind of exercise. Welsh Springers are not happy if they are separated from people for long periods of time.

Before deciding that a Welsh Springer is right for you and your family, please read our FAQs. Ideally, you should make contact with a number of breeders, visit them and decide if this breed is right for you. You can meet breeders at dog shows or via the Welsh Springer email list.

The Welsh Springer Spaniel Club does not recommend breeders, however the WSSC Secretary email small does hold a list of breeders in the UK who have puppies available. This list can be viewed from here.

You might also want to consider the possibility of adopting a rescue Welsh. Members of the WSSC and the 3 regional clubs operate a rescue and re-homing scheme which is described on a separate page.
