About Saltmarshe Field Spaniels

Field Spaniel Kennel

Saltmarshe is a young new Field Spaniel kennel, having been involved with the breed for only a few years. We are fortunate, however to have several mentors with combined experience of over 40 years in Fields, and we are constantly learning and exploring.

Our human family consists of David Bowers, Laura Scott and our teenage son, Gabriel. Our dogs are an integral part of our family. They enjoy daily walks and contact with the residents of our neighborhood, as well as trips to places near and far, including regular spectating at Gabriel’s swim and crew practices and competitions. So far, we have completed a championship on “Earl” CH Evans' Apollo, CGC and “Oliver,” CH Avalyde Keeping Christmas, CGC. Both of these boys have earned their Canine Good Citizenship title, and we are continuing their training with the goal of earning obedience titles.

Laura and David bring complementary skills and interests to the care of their canine family. David, a medical professional, focuses on their health, maintenance, growth and physical development. Laura concerns herself with the mental development of the dogs. She assesses their strengths and weaknesses and finds the proper venues and environments to enable each dog to thrive and develop his potential.

Saltmarshe is committed to the creation of the well-balanced dog. Beauty is only part of the equation. Good health and sound temperament are necessities.
