Christine has been breeding and training gundogs since 1983 and has always health tested her dogs to the maximum. She is a KC FT Judge, Accredited Breeder, and serves on several Committees.
Christines' breeding programme aims for drive, stamina, soundness and long healthy lives. Currently she's into her eighth generation of English Springer Spaniels. She has a keen and practical interest in all working spaniels and retrievers and Christine's affix is well known and respected in many breeds. Christine breeds in order to provide herself with a pup of KNOWN ability, soundness and longevity... NOT for commercial gain. She says "if you think you can make money in correctly breeding dogs.... forget it!" She is breeding less and less in recent years as her stud dogs have attracted some very nice bitches; pups in lieu of stud fees have been taken. Not to mention that she is getting a bit long in the tooth... she's trying to cut down the work these days... not increase it.
Using only top stud dogs with hunting ability and kind temperament at the top of the list of her requirements, she is very proud of her SCHERZANDO Kennel's reputation for producing hard workers. All Christine's dogs over the age of twelve months have always been hip scored and eye tested.
