We are ethical Breed Enthusiasts and long time AKC Conformation Show Exhibitors striving to continue and improve on the qualities of the dogs we have invested in as both companion and performance animals.
On average, we breed a litter every 1 to 1 1/2 years. Our puppies are raised in our home, receive copious amounts of attention and affection, excellent veterinary care plus quality nutrition.
TAILS ... YOU WIN!!!
We are no longer docking tails!
I've never cared for removing parts of a dog.
It is apparent from European and other Welsh Springers world wide that having a tail does not hinder them in the field, when tracking, doing Agility or many other activities where they excel. More U.S. breeders are are taking this step, and we feel it is appropriate.
The case made for docking, especially related to hunting, seems contemporarily specious. Traditionally docking came about to avoid the encumbrance of brush and burrs, or possible injury, especially due to the scarcity of affordable Veterinary care available in past eras.
It may be a challenge to breed for correct tail set and carriage, but as an extension of the spine, it seems we should have the foundation already.
Redsage litters are carefully planned and lovingly raised in our home.
Tails are NOT docked.

Welsh Springer Spaniels are a less common breed, therefore the number of puppies is quite limited. In fact, there are less than 300 individual puppies registered with the AKC each year!
