Field-Bred English Springer Spaniels

Photo Gallery

Awards AboundThe following photo gallery is provided to give you an idea of the type and style of dog we eneavor to produce under the banner Ivanhoe Springer Spaniels. Click on a thumbnail to see the full image.

Why "Ivanhoe"?
The name "Ivanhoe" is burrowed from the Sir Walter Scott romance novel. Based on Celtic and Old English folklore, the story is a classic. We chose Ivanhoe because our family got its beginning on Ivanhoe Avenue in 1979. At the same time our quest began to produce a distinct, fine line of topflight English Springer Spaniels.

Our Dogs and Pups

We adhere to a strict breeding program of linebreeding with the introduction of formidable outcrosses. We breed for talent, temperament and intelligence. In terms of physical appearance, our dogs emulate a classic Springer look. A broad head, square muzzle, dark eye, athletic build — perhaps a shade longer in torso than high at the shoulder.
