    Dealing primarily with labs, I don't track spaniels too much, but:

    Any recommended breeders in the SE for Springers, AWS, or Boykins?

    Undecided yet, but leaning springer. FWIW, I'd take a German/Wechtel, if I could find one.

    Thanks.

    Thanks. I know it'll likely start a war, but I can't make up my mind on the spaniel breeds. LOL

    I also obviuosly love the AWS. There is a good article in the current Delta Waterfowl mag. One of the best , most thorough breeders I know is Sharron Mann , Mann’Rs AWS Kennels

    Going to hang out with some AWS and Boykins soon. Any leads on field bred springers these days?

    ....and I’ve tripped over some seemingly jam up red dogs, and looks like we’ll just go back with a smaller lab....for now. I fully expect my son to confiscate it, leaving me needing another.

    Just never was much on finding good field Goldens, around here anyway. They’ve gotten polluted about like Irish setters, it seems. I’ve been around some decent ones, but usually not until they were 8-10 years old and physically couldn’t spas out anymore. LOL. Heck, half the bubba lab world seems to think drive can’t exist without hyper these days. I know, that’s doggist of me. LOL

    I got my first golden in 82 from a "backyard" breeder in Indiana. No particular blood lines but turned into a super hunter. Master hunter. All her pups that went to hunters made good hunters. I now have a pup out of two of her descendants. Hunts pheasants like they owe her money, lots of money. I believe it's in all golden it just takes time with them you can't beat it into them like a lab.
