We specialise in the breeding and training of English Springer Spaniels, Cocker Spaniels and Labradors as working dogs and for field trials.

Based near Ludlow in the beautiful Shropshire countryside our kennels and approach to training is based on three criteria .. quality, quality and quality
We have a limited number of dogs for training at any one time to ensure that each receives the perfect amount of time as does the owner ! We firmly believe that completion of the training does not end with the dog being collected by the owner. Our approach incorporates offering the owner time, expertise and support after the dog has returned home.


We have excellent Labrador, Springer and Cocker dogs at stud, each with impressive pedigrees and field trial results. Full details of each of our stud dogs can be found under the breed section on this web site, and we are only a phone call way to discuss your specific requirements.

It is standard practice to have hips and eyes tested with Labradors before using them for breeding, however, at Shropshire Gun Dogs, we have followed this through to our English  Springer Spaniel stud dogs; all of whom have the same tests carried out, in order to protect the breed for the future. This is something that is not carried  out with the majority of English springer stud dogs in this country.

Puppies, part trained and fully trained gun dogs are occasionally available so be sure to check our gun dogs for sale section regularly or contact us with your specific requirements.

Our purpose built modern insulated Kennels have tiled floors, heating and separate insulated bedding areas all kept to the highest possible standards of cleanliness. There is a large exercise yard and each dog is walked at least twice a day.


Care of your dog whilst at Cowarnecourt Gundogs does not just include the welfare of the dog. Dog theft is an increasing problem and we have taken every precaution to ensure your dog is safe. We double lock the kennels, a security dog has free range of all the kennel area plus an up-to-date security CCTV system running 24 hours which includes night vision cameras.
