Welcome to Chanderhill Spanish Water Dogs. The proprietors of our kennel are Mark Rutherford and Kate Hodgkinson-Rutherford.

We are a small family run kennel based on the edge of the Peak District in Derbyshire. All of our dogs live in the home with us and are much loved family pets.

We are Kennel Club Assured Breeders. We have had three beautiful litters of puppies this summer.

Breeding for health, type and temperament are paramount to us. All of our puppies are raised in our home with a view to them going to their “forever homes” as excellent family pets. They are very much part of our day to day life.

As a veterinary surgeon, Kate knows the importance of only breeding from health tested dogs which have sound temperaments.

We are strong believers in health testing. All of our adult Spanish Water Dogs are hip scored and eye tested. They have also been DNA tested for Prcd PRA as well as Hypothyreosis (CHG) & Neuroaxonal Dystrophy (NAD), which are the tests newly recommended by the Spanish Water Dog Club UK.
