Profile - David Shields
I have been associated with English Springer Spaniels since the 1970's. Although Cocker Spaniels have been my main breed, showing under the "Wilholme" affix, I had the great fortune in the 1970's, 1980's and 1990's to be involved with two of the top English Springer kennels in the UK, the Cleavehill's of Jean Taylor and the Teesview's of Ellen Dobson and had the opportunity to show a number of top dogs from both kennels.
I judge the breed frequently at championship show level in both the UK and abroad and I presently serve on the International English Springer Spaniel Symposium Committee. I have been the representative for the breed on Gundog Breeds since 2001.
