About Us

We are a small family run kennel based on the edge of the Peak District in Derbyshire.

Our first Spanish Water Dog ‘Burta’ entered our lives just over five years ago and from that moment on we fell in love with this wonderful versatile breed.

Chanderhill was established as a hobby for Kate on taking early retirement from work as a veterinary surgeon.

Our Spanish Water Dogs are very much part of our family. They all live in the house with us and our daughters Beth (aged 13) and Charlotte (aged 9).

As a family we train and compete with our dogs regularly. We compete with them at shows in the UK and Ireland, with regular trips down to Spain and over to other European countries for competitions.

We also take part in water training and ring craft classes weekly, and have completed the Spanish Breed Club’s character and natural aptitude test (the TCAN) in Spain.

As these are great family trips out, we would encourage and support all of our puppy owners to take part in these and other canine activities.
