WRESSAA is a provincial association, recognized by the Canadian Kennel Club, that was founded in August 1989 by a group of breeders and Springer fanciers in order to promote the English Springer Spaniel to the public and to educate pet owners & breeders on many aspects concerning the breed. One of the primary mandates of the Club is to promote responsible pet ownership and breeding.
Besides educational seminars (grooming, eye clinics, ring stewarding, etc.) we hold several fun events throughout the year. We also hold several fund raisers in which a percentage of the proceeds is donated to charitable organizations. Our 2009 Specialty Show was held on Saturday July 11th, 2009 in conjunction with the Evelyn Kenny Kennel & Obedience Club Shows. This was our 20th Anniversary Celebration. Check out the Results page.
In 2011 WRESSAA is thrilled to once again host the Canadian Nationals. The English Springer Spaniel Club of Canada National Specialty will take place in conjunction with the Alberta Kennel Club shows at Spruce Meadows, Calgary Alberta on Saturday July 30th, 2011. WRESSAA's Regional Specialty will take place on Friday July 29th in the same location; WRESSAA's Specialty Obedience Trial will occur on Sunday July 31st, 2011 (indoors).
