Goldmaid is the home of 4 humans, Myself, My husband Yogi and two lovely girls, Laura and Aimee.
Goldmaid Welsh started in 1987 with the purchase of our first bitch, from Elaine McVeity - Ch Tanjanova Gold Sheen. Sheena did her fair share of winning, with Sydney Royal Bitch Challenge, Canberra Royal Best of Breeds and Welsh Springer Spaniel Club Show RUBIS and class in show awards.
We Mated Sheena to Braint in 1989 and that was a wonderful combination and it produced 2 BIS/BISS Winning Grand Champions, and from then on as they say the rest is History. We must thank Elaine McVeity and Tanjanova for the great guidance and wonderful help in starting us off in the Welsh Springers, without her lovely lines and dogs we wouldn't have gotten where we are now, being one of Australia's highest achieving welsh springer kennels, we have produced 5 grand champion welsh springers and a few more nearly titled, with over 25 Australian Champions and a few Obedience champions to our credit. (not including cockers and weimaraners that we have bred).
Goldmaid Welsh Springers is located on the Central Coast of NSW, just over 1 hour from Sydney.
The Dogs love being here, when not swimming at the beach they are running about getting lovely and dirty, they are doing what dogs love to do best.
Laura is our Junior Handler and has shown many dogs to gain their Australian Championship.
Winning Best Junior Handler at the WSSC Shows. Laura was invited to attend the Dogs NSW Pedigree Junior Handler final in Sydney since 2006. When Laura is not competing in Sports she competes in Junior handlers for fun. She would rather show the dogs in their classes.
Aimee has now commenced Junior handlers winning Dogzonline pointscore Best New handler for 2011 in the 7-10 age group and coming 3rd nationally, whilst Laura competed in the 13-18 age group and finished 7th nationally. (2nd in NSW).
Aimee has won NSW State Finals 7 - under 10 years 1st place in 2013 and 10 - under 13 years 1st place in 2014.
Our dogs are more than just show dogs they are our family pets. (As Rusty would tell you after being bathed and blowdryed for a dog show to take off and chase the geese into the dam and some 1/2 later decide to come out once you've caught a baby goose, to then have to have another bath for the show the next day.)
All our breeding stock at Goldmaid is hipscored, elbow scored and eye tested, including eye testing for Goniodgensis as we are breeding for the future of the breed.
All enquiries welcome. Puppies occasionally available and bookings are recommended.
We will be breeding Mid May 2016.
