       "Rough Shooting Springer Spaniels"

Windmill Hill Kennels is a breeder of Field Bred English Springer Spaniels focusing on the traditional "rough shooting" traits desired in a home & hunter companion.

Our Philosophy

If you are looking for a selective non-commercial breeder with a goal of developing the essential behaviors found the excellent field springer spaniel gundogs you should take a few moments to learn about us at Windmill Hill Kennels. Windmill Hill Kennels’ goal is to continue the traditional quest for breeding of cooperative sensitive field springer spaniels suitable for non-electronic collar and positive reinforcement training. Our goal is to provide the traditional hunter of upland birds and waterfowl an all-around excellent companion gundog, suitable for living in the home and seriously hunting in any terrain, in any weather, for any birds within the safe physical limits of a field springer spaniel. In the words of Ray Holland in his book Seven Grand Dogs, “These dogs were all finished craftsmen in the hunting field, plying their trade of finding game, pointing or flushing it, and then retrieving it. However, they were more than that – they were loved by their folks and they loved their folks." 

Donna and Tony Welcome You to Windmill Hill Kennels


This website contains information about what we are doing in the world of Field Bred English Springer Spaniels. We will be posting information about past and future AKC & NAHRA hunt tests and hunting trips, planned breedings, training we are doing, and of course about the puppies that will comprise the next generation of first class versatile home and hunting companions.


Our girl "Tempest" is as beautiful as she is talented. She is the quintessential hunting and home companion that has wonderful disposition, a desire to please, and instincts for all types of bird hunting in various types of cover.  We believe her lines should be carried on, so others can have the many rewarding experiences we have had and continue to have.


In the morning of June 19th Brigit gave birth under one of our pine trees what was the first of TWELVE puppies.

The births went from 10:50 AM to 2:20 AM on June 20th. Mom was a trooper and did them all herself. They are all healthy and strong. 

They will all be ready for their forever homes by Labor Day Weekend. By that time they will have completed our "Puppy PreK Program" and will be prepared for joining a family. 

All twelve of the pups have found forever homes.
They will be leaving on or around Labor Day weekend.
Thank-You to all the well wishers out there.
We will miss them all, but know they will be in good hands.
Our next litter is now planned for Summer 2019, but that may change to an earlier date. We will keep everyone in the loop.
Please fill out an application [Apply & Stories] and send us an email if you want to put on the list for the next litter.
Have a great Fall hunting birds this season.
I will be guiding in NH for grouse and woodcock weekends in October and Waterfowl in RI weekends November, December, and January. 
I specialize in small groups of one or two.
Email me for more information on dates and prices.

This is Fast Track's Sky Land "Ranger" who is Brigit's Sire.

The "All American" litter of "Brigit" and "Ranger" is now on the ground and are well into the Puppy PreK training and socialization program. 

They will stay with us getting much love, experiential learning, and introduction to needed basic skills for 12 weeks. So they leave for their new forever homes  around Labor Day Weekend they will enter the ranks of home and hunters ready to learn and grow. You can learn about our training and socialization program on the "Puppies" page; as well as learning about our 2 previous litters.


We are Accepting Deposits from Families Who Want to Have Loving Hunters with Great Drive and a Gentle Temperament to Join Their Forever Homes


We'll be posting pictures of their progress with our "Bird Dog Puppy PreK" on the Puppy Page.
