LESLEY THOMPSON

Proprietor

Lesley has owned Springer Spaniels for over 35 years. Her first girl was named Jenny, from Shropshire, followed by Kim, from Wiltshire, Sophie, from Northamptonshire and Sparky from Essex. In 1977, she had her first litter from Jenny and just loved rearing such wonderful puppies and found it rewarding finding super homes for them and keeping in touch with their owners for most of their lives. As the years went on Lesley gained more experience in selecting the right sire and had litters from each of her bitches, keeping one pup from each. "I became interested in working our dogs and picking up on shoots etc..." Also, Lesley entered tests and trials, which she also loved. 

 

 

Her first Cocker Mia was a gift from her friends 'Dave and Janet James', and she was totally smitten with her and over the years has increased the  number of Cockers as you will see on our dogs pages. As you will see from Sofies page, she took over from Lesley entering tests and trials. Currently Lesley is in charge of doing the initial training of pups that we keep back and assessing their potential for future working and trialling.

 

 

We built our first block of kennels for our own dogs in 1984 and our friends in the dog world used to ask us whether they could board their dogs with us. This prompted us to eventually apply for permission to run Boarding Kennels which was granted. This was the best thing we ever did and we now love every type of dog and enjoy seeing our doggy friends each year when they come for their holidays.
