..to Jaraina English Springer Spaniels. Here you can meet our dogs and find out about their achievements in the show ring, follow links to other English Springer Spaniel sites, and see photos of Jaraina dogs past and present.
We are Joanna and Ray Jaggers. At our kennels in North-East Derbyshire we breed English Springer Spaniels for the show ring.
We also have an interest in the working aspect of the breed and have trained some of our more inclined show dogs to the gun, achieving Show Gundog Working Certificates and high placings in show gundog field day events.
In breeding dogs for the show ring, we sometimes have show-bred puppies and other young stock available for sale to caring and responsible homes.
If you are looking for a puppy or older dog it is always useful to contact us as we may be able to help or know of someone who can.
Here is a view of our main outbuilding and covered runs. More photos can be viewed on the At Jaraina page.

5 week old puppy bitch (Jaraina Just Inspired x Jaraina Just Bedazzled), born late September 2008
We have been connected with the breed for over 30 years. We started with a working type Springer bitch in the early 1970s. We mated her to Judith Hancock's Hawkhill Mon Fils, son of the famous Show Champion Hawkhill Connaught, then the breed record holder.
In 1980, we bought our first and foundation show bitch, Salloway T'Soulaiki of Jaraina, from Derek and Janice Bates of Salloway Kennels.
We have bred and owned one Show Champion, Jaraina Jacqui Tyn (Junior Warrant), and a number of other top winning show dogs. Successes include Challenge Certificates (CCs) and Reserve CCs at Crufts with Jaraina Jacqui Tyn, Jaraina Joker's Wild (JW) and Jaraina Jack of All Trades (JW).
Overall, we have bred and owned nine Kennel Club Stud Book qualifiers and six Junior Warrant winners, many of whom have also won Best in Show, Reserve Best in Show, and Best Puppy in Breed at championships and open shows.
