Belle just turned ten years old and is the absolute joy in our lives. From our first visit and subsequent visits till pick up, we knew we selected the right breeder for a Springer. Loving, smart, great temperament. Also excellent conformation for a bench dog. From the pictures in the home to meeting all the residents we had a great experience.

We brought Sofia into our home almost 15 years ago. She was born in Springer Haven on 1/29/08 and we have been lucky enough to have her as part of our family. Ralph and Linda are quality breeders who care so much about their dogs and it shows. Sofia is now 15 years old and we attribute her longevity to the incredible breeding of Springer Haven. Thank you for giving us such a wonderful addition to our family!! 🐾❤️🐶

I just wanted to say thank you to Linda and Ralph at Springerhaven. We did a lot of looking around at different breeders and once we found Springerhaven, we knew that’s where we wanted to get our new bundle of joy. From the first time I spoke with Linda and Ralph, I could tell that they are very compassionate and knowledgeable about this breed. We have already had many laughs and good times with our puppy. She is very smart, loving, and was very easy to train. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a Springer to call Ralph and Linda at Springerhaven.

Springerhaven bred spaniels Hudson and Dolores
Last autumn, when COVID was really setting in, we decided to find a Springer puppy. My husband found Springerhaven and we made the trek to meet Linda and Ralph. Long story short, we ended up getting TWO: Dolores and Hudson. It was, by far, the best decision we’ve made in a long time. They are both beautiful animals and, more than that, smart, attentive, and sensitive. I cannot imagine how we’d have gotten through the last year without them.

As has been said here already, Linda and Ralph are truly special: they REALLY love this wonderful breed and care about the homes their pups are going to. It’s the farthest thing I can imagine from a “puppy mill” and am so grateful for Springerhaven.

Until the next Springer pup!

Springerhaven Review about two puppies

You guys are the best! Thank you again so much!!! We see that unlike most breeders we have encountered, you truly care about and love this breed like we do. We’ve had Springers over the past 30 years and there’s no comparison to the other breeds. If you need a reference for your business or website please feel free to use us.

Springerhaven Review about Scout

Just wanted to let you know how much we love our puppy Scout! We have all bonded very well. He is smart and obedient. He is 4 months now and 24 lbs! He has fit well into our lifestyle. He gets plenty of exercise on our 3 acres. He loves the water and is socializing well with other people and dogs. So thank you for making us very happy with our decision.

Springerhaven Review about Crosby, owned by Karen Sweatt-Jonza

We bought Crosby 8 years ago. We couldn’t imagine life without him. He is the sweetest, silliest dog. Thank you Linda and Ralph.

12/24/2020: We purchased 2 puppies from Springerhaven! The dogs are absolutely beautiful, very smart and we love them dearly. Linda and Ralph were very helpful and accommodating. We actually leave the dogs with them whenever we travel South. Highly recommend Springerhaven!

Springerhaven review by Megan Sylvia

I got my first Springer from Springerhaven at 12 years old as a Christmas present. It was the best gift I have ever gotten. Our dog was so well behaved people would comment about it all the time. “Wow you really have an amazing dog” Ralph and Linda were the ones to thank for her amazing behavior. They taught us so much about training before we took her home. Unfortunately she passed away years ago. It broke our hearts, and to this day our family and friends still talk about how amazing our pup was. She really left an impact on our lives growing up….

Springerhaven Review

…A few months ago me and my bf were talking about getting a puppy so I decided to call up Springerhaven and see if they had any puppies available. Linda and Ralph greeted us with opened arms even during Covid. They took caution with showing us the puppies. We picked the one we wanted, he was only a week old so we had to wait.

We were able to come visit our little pup once a week. Man did he grow fast. Every time we went Linda and Ralph would explain how to care for him and what to expect…

What a way to propose!

…Little did I know that my bf was planning on proposing to me with the puppy. Linda and Ralph helped him set everything up. It was very cute.

I can’t speak more highly of Springerhaven! If you’re looking for an English Springer Spaniel for your next pup this is definitely the place to go. They have so much knowledge and understanding of this breed and their Springers are so well behaved.

~Megan Sylvia


We just took home our second puppy from Ralph and Linda. Their dogs are simply wonderful. After working with Ralph and Linda for over seven years, I can tell you they are completely invested in the care and support your dog for his/her life. They have always been there for us. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to add a loving and trusted companion to your home.

~ Bob Severance


We have a Springer from Springerhaven, and we absolutely love him. Finley is a 2-year-old bundle of joy. Great family dog and excellent hunting pheasant. Very smart and always eager to please. I have never owned a dog like him and can’t imagine our life without him.

Springerhaven Review about Rocky and Gracie

We have Gracie who is 2 years old now and Rocky who was born in July. We are very pleased with our experience with Ralph and Linda. They sent us home with everything we needed for our dogs and have answered all of our questions about the dogs. They love when we bring them back to visit and if we need them for anything day or night they are available for us. Thank you so much Linda & Ralph.

Ralph and Linda are exceptionally knowledgeable dog breeders, and they have the results to prove it: beautiful, healthy Springer Spaniels! If you are seeking a new companion– and even if you are not sure that you are!– I highly recommend paying them a visit. They are sensitive to those who love dogs and will match your preferences to one of their little fur babies.

Sherman is now 20 months, and really has grown into a beautiful Springer. You can see the championship of his father in his stance! He is very smart– knows over 100 different words– can “howl” on command, and loves his cousin, “Dude!” He becomes alert when I mention his mother, “Mabel”, too. And he loves Linda and Ralph!

Absolutely everything! My heart is broken as my beloved Charlie passed away this weekend at 11+ totally joyful years of age. Linda and Ralph were awesome when I drove my folks from NH to choose their 5th English Springer Spaniel (first was 69 years ago as a wedding gift!) My parents were in their later years, but lived with me —and we passed their careful scrutiny and drove home with a black and white male…named Charlie during our 5 hour trip home.

Charlie became an unofficial service dog for my blind Dad…and when Dad became a double amputee, Charlie retrieved remotes, slippers, opened pocket doors, but most of all he was my Dad’s best buddy.

After both my parents passed in one year, Charlie and I were inseparable. He loved rides in my little ragtop MB letting his long silky ears blow in the open car. That little dog napped with any number at a time of my 6 special needs rescue cats…and was so sweet with my 4 grandchildren under age 3. While my heart is empty without my best buddy to walk the trails with the deer, chase turkeys and chipmunks…I have wonderful memories of my beautiful Springer. They truly are special dogs. Thank you Linda and Ralph.

We have bought three Springer Spaniels from them and they are the best lovable dogs to own.

~Dorothy Shannon


My family has been getting dogs from this breeder for years. There is no one else we would trust…Here are breeders that love and care for their dogs. All of our business has been professional and clear. I would and have recommended them to anyone looking for a loving addition to their family. If anyone has questions, I would gladly speak to their character and business.

Ralph and Linda’s Springers are well-bred, friendly and just beautiful dogs. We got our Sebastian two years ago and one year later brought in our second springer Molly. They are very healthy, loyal and loving companions to our family.

Linda and Ralph prepared us with extensive information and supplies for an easy transition for both our family and the dogs. They are available 24/7 for any questions or concerns we might have. We still call them just to pick their brains from time to time. Linda and Ralph don’t place their dogs with just anyone. Their extensive questionnaire ensures that their dogs go to suitable families and that it is a correct fit for both the dog and the owner. We have recommended spring Haven to our friends and family on numerous occasions. Everyone always walks away happy! We are so happy we found them!!

~Jana Stasova-Harrington


Springerhaven treats their dogs and puppies like part of the family, raised in their home and nurtured with love and devotion. Linda and Ralph do their utmost to place their puppies in homes that will give them the care they deserve. Happy owners and repeat customers are proof of the quality and compassion they extend.

~Karen O’Shea


Our Springerhaven Springers are 5 and 7 now, and I couldn’t imagine a better pair of family dogs!

Springerhaven Review by Elena Bird

We got a fantastic dog from Linda and Ralph. They were so understanding that we’d just lost our other dog and helped watch the pup until we were ready to bring him home after vacation. They were extremely responsive and all the dogs we met were very affectionate and sweet. We could tell they were raised in a loving house. Our dog is the sweetest dog we have ever owned. He is easy to train (although full of energy) and was housebroken almost immediately. I attribute this to Linda and Ralph raising him with other well-behaved dogs. He isn’t perfect, but he is a very good dog and very healthy.

Springerhaven Review by Elena Bird

We just got our beautiful Poppy from Springerhaven yesterday. We have been very impressed with Linda and Ralph. Not only are they fantastic breeders and trainers, but they are wonderful in preparing adoptive families with all the info and supplies they will need for a smooth and easy transition. We couldn’t be happier.

~Melina McGrew McConnaughy


We bought our pup, Winnie, in July ’14 and have been thoroughly pleased. We paid a fair price for a quality dog that has been healthy and energetic. She is our 3D Springer and we are very satisfied. We were impressed by the questioning by Linda and Ralph for our suitability for the breed. As you know, they aren’t for everyone. That said, we are thrilled at how well she has assimilated with our 4 grandchildren (6 mos to 3.5 yrs).
