Bob and Lori Nieto have been actively breeding bench style english springer spaniels for over 25 years. Our springers are bred for conformation competition, and also compete in performance events. All our dogs are AKC registered, x-rayed for hip dysplasia, DNA checked for progressive retinal atrophy, and eyes CERF'd for other genetic diseases with normal results before they are used in our breeding program. We apply the same health standards to the stud dogs outside of our kennel who our girls are bred to.
All pet puppies are sold on limited AKC registration. All show puppies are sold under co-ownership. The puppies stay with their mother and littermates until they reach 10 weeks of age. All puppies eyes are examined for CERF and their DNA is tested for PRA (unless the results are known based on parentage).
