A Crufts first for Kirkmarsh
This is Kirkmarsh Boaster,

Kirkmarsh Kennel by being the first Irish Water Spaniel (we
believe) to have qualified for Crufts in the team flyball
He is part of the Warrington Wizards team in the competition.
Good luck to Tristan and his owner Spencer Thomas.
Tristan is by our American import Bentley out of our Swedish

are owners, handlers and breeders of working Irish Water
Spaniels and use them in the shooting field as well as
competitively in gun dog working tests and field trials. We
even enter the occasional show.
Our Water Spaniels are bred for temperament, for working in
the shooting field, competing in gundog working tests and
field trials, but most of all they are bred to be great
companions, with fantastic personalities. The dogs we now
use for breeding are all hip scored, elbow scored and have
annual eye tests. In addition, mating considerations are
checked against a breed database and genetics program to
ensure we achieve low levels of inbreeding.
Our current dogs come from the United States, Sweden,
Ireland and homebred by us in the UK.
We devote most of our time and energy to the breed,
including the promotion of the breed.
We occasionally have puppies available and would be
delighted to talk to you about the Breed and whether it is
suitable for you.
