About Us

Hello and welcome to the world of Lyndongraey Field Spaniels, check out our website at www.lyndongraey.co.uk for any news on our four-legged family.  My name is Lynne Geary and with my partner, Ray Ogden and have owned this wonderful breed for nearly 20 years.  The Field Spaniel is an unusually docile dog with a well-balanced and steady temperament. They make fine pets or companion dogs and if trained properly excellent workers in the field.  Fields thrive on human contact and become totally devoted to their owners but can become quite noisy and insistent when seeking attention. They will also strike up instant friendships with anyone prepared to share food with them and are past masters of that ‘I haven’t been fed in weeks’ look! It is often said that Field Spaniels are ideally suited to rural living and are not happy in urban surroundings since they require plenty of exercise. In the main this is true but like all dogs any exercise is good exercise whether it is across open fields or on urban pavements. Exercise is not just for muscle and bone it is also for the brain since new sights, sounds, smells and experiences are all absorbed to give your dog a more rounded personality and encourage confidence. Take heed, Field’s love water and are quite accomplished swimmers and need little encouragement to partake in one of their favourite past-times. Mud and puddles can also be a great adventure and you would be amazed how wet a Field can make itself in a puddle the size of a dustbin lid. As working dogs they are very robust by nature with a keen nose and a good deal of intelligence. They make fine dogs for people interested in rough shooting who enjoy that companion relationship with their dogs. Training Field’s requires patience as a virtue since they are more difficult to train than the traditional working dogs such as the Cocker or Springer. Although not as flighty and eager as some breeds they can be quite head strong to the point of distraction, but as with any gundog firm but fair not boot and stick will win the day. At home they make good companions and like nothing better than to share your living space. If allowed Fields can be avid lap dogs, but mature males weighing in at 55 lbs are not everyone’s ideal for sharing the sofa and can have a habit of making like a sack of spuds! They may also be kept as kennel dogs and can adapt to this style of living quite happily although they may become noisy if kept in isolation and prefer the company of other dogs as stable mates. Grooming should be daily ensuring feathering on the legs, chest and ears are knot free. Unlike many of the other spaniel breeds Field’s do not grow excessive coats and trimming is minimal to keep them clean and tidy. The feet will need attention from time to time and should be clipped into a neat shape and excessive hair around the pads removed. Ears should be inspected on a weekly basis and cleaned out with damp cotton wool to prevent excessive wax build up.
