Welcome to BarTay's Welsh Springer Spaniels and Gordon Setters. I started out in dogs over 30 years ago with a Gordon Setter named Barney. After taking him to an obedience class I was hooked and started showing him in obedience. When he became ill, I knew I had to have a Gordon in my life and I acquired my second Gordon, Taylor. By now I was interested in showing in conformation and Taylor became my first AKC Champion. Taylor also earned his CD and CDX obedience title along with his JH hunting title.
In 2004 I acquired by first Welsh Springer Spaniel looking for a little smaller dog to show and compete with. Walker was everything I could have wanted. He earned his Championship and several group placements and was also Best of Opposite Sex at the 2006 Welsh National. He earned his Novice Rally title and his CD obedience title. I am fortunate to have a couple of his offspring with me and several of his kids, grandkids and now great grandkids have done extremely well in the show ring.
My dogs are first and foremost my pets and family. I breed only occasionally and with emphasis on temperament and health.
