NORTHGATE has been dedicated to breeding and exhibiting conformationally correct, versatile and healthy
English Springer Spaniels since 1975.  We have bred/owned over 90 AKC champions including multiple Best in
Show winners, Westminster KC winners, as well as ESSFTA award winners and dogs successfully competing in
obedience, agility and rally.  Over the years we have sold show prospects to many parts of the world.

The emphasis of our breeding program has centered on healthy springers with family oriented temperaments,
sound hips, hearts and eyes, and conformation according to our breed standard.  We invite you to contact us
about a future puppy for your family, or with any questions or information you seek - we are here to help you
learn about our wonderful breed of English Springer Spaniels!

We are pleased to announce that we have been recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC) as a "Breeder
of Merit."  For more information, visit the AKC website at

Also, late in 2007 we were selected by the Make-A-Wish Foundation as the Breeder of Choice to make a young
boy's wish come true by placing one of our young English Springer Spaniels with his wonderful family!!  We are
extremely excited to have become a part of such a heartwarming endeavor!!  Read our
Make-A-Wish story.


We are members and/or past officers of:  The Potomac Valley English Springer Spaniel Club,  the Warrenton Kennel Club (all
breeds), our Parent Club - English Springer Spaniel Field Trial Association (ESSFTA), and the new Mountain Valley English
