One of the best features our club offers are informal training days. These training days are typically held on the Training Areas surrounding Joint Base Lewis-McCord or at Scatter Creek Wildlife Area near Grand Mound, Washington. The exact locations vary, depending on military activity or grounds availability. Club members stay in touch via e-mail and are kept informed of the times and places by participating in a Yahoo Group Chat Forum.
Prospective dog owners and new members are always welcome to join us. Please provide us with a little information about yourself by submitting a WWESSC contact form found under the Training tab then watch your e-mail for further contact from a club member.
The Western Washington English Springer Spaniel Club was conceived in 1945 and its members hosted their first field trial in 1946. The club's tradition of sportsmanship and comaraderie has been evident and uninterrupted since 1946. While many of the members trial their dogs and train to this level of work, there is also a group of members who concentrate on training for hunting only.
WWESSC is dedicated to the preservation and to the improvement of the Field Bred English Springer Spaniel and to its cousin the Field Bred English Cocker Spaniel. To that end the club holds two American Kennel Club licensed Field Trials annually as well as licensed Hunt Tests. Members try to meet informally once per week to help each other with training.
