The Welsh Springer Spaniel is a strong, merry active spaniel easily identified by its rich red and white coat. This type of dog was bred for hunting rabbits, birds and other game in the undergrowth and getting them to run or fly, originally for the falcon but nowadays for the gun.

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Barrie Janes, husband of Jan Janes (AsstSec of the WSSCSW).

Barrie passed away suddenly on the morning of Sunday 29th December 2019, he had been a staunch member of the club since its inception, his support and help at every club event was invaluable.
Barrie and Jan are very well known and respected throughout the Welsh Springer community with the Coedybrain kennel affix and they have enjoyed many successes over the years.
Barrie will be greatly missed and we sincerely offer our condolences to Jan and family.
Further details will be posted when confirmed by the family.

This was the original meaning of 'springing' and hence the term 'springer'. In the principality of Wales, the Welsh Springer Spaniel was known as a separate and distinct variety and can be traced with certainty to the eighteenth century, although the term 'spaniel' was first found in the 1300s. It is the only breed of gundog native to Wales.

The Welsh Springer Spaniel Club of South Wales was founded in 1980. It's the only club in Wales which is specifically dedicated to furthering the interests of the Welsh Springer Spaniel.

Whether you show, work or just keep your dog as a pet, the Club has something for everyone.

With two Open Shows and a Championship Show annually together with working assessment tests, regular gundog training days, show ring-craft training, agility, obedience, Show Gundog Working Certificate, fun days, and grooming demonstrations etc., we keep ourselves extremely busy.

The Club is particularly active in the South Wales area but membership is open to all Welsh Springer enthusiasts wherever you live and advice on any aspect of Welsh Springer Spaniel owning or breeding is readily and freely available to all members.

We hope you enjoy our site.
