A warm welcome to the website of Calvdale English Springer Spaniels

Hi, for those of you that don’t know me my name is Nicola Calvert, married to Martin and live in North Yorkshire. I have two lovely daughters Abbi and Angela. You may have seen Angela showing her Welsh Springer Spaniels under the Changangel affix. Angela and her husband Andrew have 3 gorgeous daughters, Elizabeth, Alexandra and Catherine all of whom are the apple of our eyes and seem to be following in grandmothers steps with showing dogs and or their ponies

 

Canines and Equines have always played a huge part in my life my Mother bred and exhibited both Poms and Danes (the sublime and the ridiculous) under the Fullate affix for many years. It was almost automatic that having been involved in dog showing from being tiny, that I should eventually take up my own affix and exhibit in my own right.

About 

Calvdale English Springer Spaniels

'Calvdale' was applied for to the KC in 1980, and since has enjoyed numerous successes in the show world.   I first awarded CC's

in ESS in 1993 in the UK and have also judged abroard on many occasions. I was honoured to being given the opportunity to judge the breed at Crufts in 2016 which is the highlight of any judges career and an experience which was very much enjoyed.  I also take a keen interest in several other breeds, in particular, Cocker Spaniels and have judged three Breed Club shows. Aside from ESS and cockers I also judge a number of other gun dog breeds at Open Show level, and have passed breed assessments for Weimaraner, Golden Retirever, Flatcoat Retriever and Hungarian Vizsla.

 

 

I have met some lovely people along the way and some who are sadly no longer around that were instrumental in ‘getting me started’. To folk like John and Sylvia Skilbeck (Skilleigh), Alan and Margaret Bower Bowswood, Sue Shaw and my dear friend Joan Hill (Esholt) now in Canada, I shall always be eternally grateful and shall never forget their assistance and guidance . Whilst I am always looking forward to meet what is coming next, I never forget where I started or with whom.

 

 

Calvdale are members of the Kennel Club Assured Breeder Scheme and are Proud to announce that we have been awarded the Kennel Club 'Accolade Of Excellence' in association with the ' Accredited Breeder Scheme' Calvdale were one of the first 12 breeders, all breeds, in the country to have attained this prestigious award which we are delighted to receive
