Sonnetend Field Spaniels

Field Spaniels bred by us here at Sonnetend and owned by other people.

The most important thing when finding the right homes for our puppies, is that they will be well loved members of the family. A few go to homes who wish to show them or work them.

This page will show you a little bit about some of them.

roan field spaniel

Sonnetend Spellbinder by Cochen


This beautiful, loving boy lives with Kath and Wendy and the Cochen Field Spaniels and is from our colourful Magical litter - I say colourful because his litter mates are a black, a liver, a blue roan and Griff himself is a liver roan!

He has had a wonderful start to his show career and is qualified for Crufts for life, having gained his Stud Book Number.

He has become an amazing therapy dog, working in school with young children - this is where Griff is in his element - just like his great grandmother before him, the beautiful Teisen.

Griff has sired some beautiful puppies, some being our Eternal Flame litter.

Gorgeous Nessa sure lives up to her name - she was born naughty and always up to mischief, another of our "Cole Porter" girls. She lives with our dear friends Rosalind and Russell with her aunt Dottie and cousin Dilys!

Sonnetend Fastlove at Sylviidae


The handsome Neville, a beautiful black field spaniel, brother to our Nora and Merlin, lives with his niece and grandaughter together with our dear friend Layla and her family (Sylviidae).

Neville is one of 12 from our "George" litter. He has been Layla's introduction to Fields and his easy going nature and love of children has installed in her an unbridled passion for the breed.

He has been consistently placed at shows, a highlight being his win at Crufts 2020 in a big Limit class. He has now gained his Stud Book Number, giving him a lifelong qualification for Crufts.

Neville has sired a few litters and we look forward to seeing them progress.

This beautiful black girl, one of our 10 "Touch" puppies, went to South Wales to live with our dear friends Kath and Wendy and the Cochens. She won three CCs making her a Show Champion.

Living up to her name, Teisen was the most gentle soul, again inheriting her wonderful temperament from her mother, and this was essential for her work as a Therapy dog. Teisen was a regular visitor to the classrooms at a local school, where she was a Reading Dog, helping young children to gain confidence and lessen their anxiety. Teisen's position as a Reading Dog has now been filled by her Great Grandson, Griff.
