       "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.

Tempest's Final Breeding was Summer 2015

-However, Many Families were Interested 

in a Pup From One of Her Daughters-

We had Always Wanted to Continue Tempest's Line, So We Decided to Breed her Daughter Brigit for a Summer 2017 Litter .

"Brigit" was bred with "Ranger" over April  18th and 19th, 2017. The pups should be born between June 20 - 21, 2017. They will stay with us  getting much love, socialization, experiential learning, and their basic skills over the next 11 to 12 weeks. So if Mother Nature is timely they will be leaving for their new forever homes somewhere around Labor Day Weekend. She is expecting six new pups to enter the ranks of home and hunters. 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 when they are born on this page,

and pictures of their progress with our "Bird Dog Preschool"

on the Puppy Page.

Time to Get the House Ready Now

Ranger shares all of the biddability traits of Brigit and is equally capable hunting and field trialing. We have had the pleasure of watching them both develop into wonderful companions for the home and field over the past 4 years. Both have numerous dogs in their pedigree with many AKC titles and awards. For these reasons we believe this litter will be exceptional. You can see the litter's pedigree / family tree going back four generations on the "Breed & Train" page.

It will be a busy summer for us once again.
