Captain is a stocky liver and white Spaniel. He was bred by myself and I own his mother. He has strong liver markings and is likely to throw puppies with a full or mainly liver face, as well as stocky and tall.
He is from working gundog lines and has an excellent work ethic, originally bred for detection work he has since been moved over to Mantrailing after a shift in work roles. He has an excellent nose and keen drive. He has dabbled in gundog work but it is not something I have pursued personally but he would excel. He will throw himself into any challenge and isn’t phased by brush or cover.
He is a great house pet also as he has a nice off switch. He can easily switch between working and settling. Which is what I strive for in my working Spaniels. Manic dogs do not make easy pets, and a level headedness is what I look for in my dogs second to working ability. He is friendly with dogs and people, but not obsessed with them.
