Welcome to Chivalry Springers!
Chivalry English Springer Spaniels is a small hobby kennel owned and loved by Lisa Knight, in Thompson, CT. Lisa adores these wonderful "do it all" dogs, and she is very proud of all their accomplishments.
Lisa's family had owned several field bred Springers over the years and it was here her passion was born for this breed. She grew up with several wonderful dogs and eventually got her very own. She started showing dogs in 1992 and quickly immersed herself in showing, grooming and researching every aspect of the industry. She started showing her family dog and later on, other breeds. Then, her very own Dorothy who was a gift from her parents. She has been grooming professionally since then and now owns and operates the successful Morning Star Farm Pet Resort.
We don't breed often and every dog involved in our breeding program is OFA and CERF normal. Only those who have met our strict criteria for health and temperament are bred. On average we have about one or two litters per year. Our goal is to maintain the English Springer Spaniel's happy biddable temperament that makes them the beloved family dogs they are. We deliver the complete package in our dogs by combining temperament as well as overall health and soundness. We are very selective on the homes puppies are placed in and my interview process if legnthy with everyone's best interest in mind.
We Love What We Do
We just can't imagine life without our dogs. They are, quite simply, our life. They are incredibly beautiful, intelligent, loving and happy to do whatever we ask of them with remarkable delight. They have competed in obedience and agility and remain wonderful, mellow house pets who can all get along and we wouldn't have it any other way! We have been blessed in this sport with the incredible dogs and friendships made along the way. We hope we can make some small contribution to the betterment of this breed and uphold it's character.
