  • BOS at Crufts 2019 and 2020

  • Best Puppy at Crufts in 2014, 2015, 2019 and 2020. 

  • BP in the Breed Club Match in 2014

  • BIS in the Breed Club Show in 2017, 2018 and 2019

  • BP in Breed Club Show in 2019

  • Top GSMD Breeder in UK for 7 consecutive years.

Springhaze dogs take part in Carting, Agility, Obedience, Hiking, Showing but most of all they make wonderful family companions.
