Introduction 

My name is David Massey of Dilhorne Park Gundogs. We are a very small Kennel with only 8 dogs. My  love of gundogs began as a hobby 30 years ago in my late 20's, when I started beating and picking up  on local shoots with my dogs.  

 

I developed a  passion for training spaniels for rough shooting , which lead to an early involvement competing in Kennel Club Field Trials and have been fortunate to have gained numerous awards in both open stake and novice trials  with my small team of Springers .

So far, I have been fortunate to qualify for  the English Springer Championships in 2017 , 2023 &2024  where in 2023 I was awarded a Diploma of Merit and in 2024 I was awarded 4th Place. Additionally, In 2018,  I also  had the honor of representing England at International  Field Trial Test Competition's  at  the Scottish Game Fair  and also in  the 4 Nation's  International Gundog Tests  at the CLA Game Fair, Ragley Hall, Warwickshire.  

I am still actively involved with both working and trialling spaniels and pride myself on producing a dual-purpose dog with the ability to successfully compete in trials, but also work effectively in the shooting field. I am currently a non panel spaniel judge for the Kennel Club and have judged working tests and trials throughout the UK.
