This coming year, 2020, we celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Welsh Springer Spaniel Club of South Wales.

To mark this auspicious year we will be awarding special prizes at our Open and Championship Shows and we hope to hold some special events such as a visit to the spiritual home of the WSS at Llanharan House.

We hope our members will enjoy celebrating with us and we look forward to seeing all your beautiful Welshies throughout the year.

Here's some events we have planned - click for details:



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.

We were very sad to announce the passing Of Gill Tully - above is a photo of her in happier times when she judged at our Championship Show back in 2014. Gill will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

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.
