Welcome to our website.

We are a small family of Field Spaniels and Hungarian Wirehaired Vizslas based on the South coast.

Our dogs are an integral part of our family. We enjoy working them in the field and showing them in the ring and most of all they are much loved members of our family.

Sonnetend is very proud to be the breeders of the UKs Top Field Spaniel 2015 and the home of Top Brood Bitch 2015 & 2017. We are also proud to be the home of the UKs Top Field Spaniel 2013.

SONNETEND do the double at CRUFTS and the double at the FSS Champ Show and Open Show 2017!!!

Both the Dog CC winners (and BOBs) and Bitch CC winners bred by us here at Sonnetend!
