Mike Shefford has 35 years experience of training gundogs and competing in field trials as well as working his dogs in the shooting field, picking up, beating and shooting over. He won the British Championship in 1989 with FTCH Penny of Housty, and has gone on to become a Kennel Club 'A' panel judge for Spaniels and has judged the British, Irish, Swedish and Danish Spaniel Championships as well as cocker Spaniel and Springer Spaniel field trials in the United States.


Mike's wealth of experience allows us here at Housty Kennels to help you with all your gundog enquiries.


We breed and train Spaniels and Retrievers for shooting and field trials. All our dogs are proven workers and we aim for trainability and temperament.

We offer puppies, young dogs ready for training, part-trained and fully trained gundogs for sale.


We also train Spaniels and Retrievers for clients to their requirements. Our training grounds include a large rabbit pen, rushy fields, brambles, bracken and moving water, all this is spread over 18 acres of land.
