MEET SOME OF OUR SPROCKER BREEDERS

Windsor Spaniels

I am a retired Risk and Insurance Manager and my husband is a retired builder. We decided to let our dog Bess have one litter of pups .... and that was how it all started. We have enjoyed it so much and are still in contact with many of the owners. We often have pack walks with the extended family.
