Hello!  

&

Welcome to My Page!

We could not Thank John & Rachel Robertson of                       enough for entrusting us with this spectacular boy.

He tottered onto the show scene in 2016 taking multiple 'Class in Group' wins as he grew up and grew into himself.

He has a temperament most breeders would be envious of, bonding deeply with his family, but level and confident enough to be a star with the public at both the 'Dog Lovers Show' & Royals impressing Adults and Children alike and proving an exemplary ambassador for our rare breed.

In 2018 he discovered 'Lure Coursing' achieving his JC (Junior Courser) title in his first weekend and he's not missed a beat yet! In 2019 he continued his passion for Lure Coursing achieving his CA (Coursing Ability) title, the achievement of Fastest Field Spaniel in Australia in Battle of the States and by the end of the year he gained his third Luring title, his CAA (Coursing Ability Advanced).

More recently (2019) has seen Macbeth stretch his wings further as he tried his nose at Tracking and with great results... sniffing his way throught tracks 1,2 & 3 to his TD title... closely followed by his tracks 4,5 & 6 to gain his TDX title... (gaining an Excellent on his track 5 in horrendous weather)

Track On my Boy!

We look forward to much more from Macbeth, the futures shining bright...

Field Spaniel critique...


Best of Breed ('Coco' Ch Meadowbriar Chocolate Coated) : Lovely bitch with very typical movement. She has a long well chiseled muzzle. Correct stop, eye and expression, well made front, level topline, ribs go well back, super temperament.


Puppy of Breed : Very promising, would like a little more depth to muzzle. Very typical and movement Ok.


General Comments : They could all be a bit bigger and up on leg a fraction. Mouths were Ok, as everywhere, feet and pasterns not great on all.
