The Club

The Club of the French Spaniel works in Quebec, since 1978, with the improvement of utility qualities and the general type of this splendid general-purpose family and pointer which is the French spaniel. It is in this spirit that the club put on line this website to realize, in the long term, it's essential mission in comparison of the improvement and the promotion of the race. 
What characterizes mainly our club it is its “Certificate of confirmation”. This certificate is emitted by the club only with the French spaniel which proved that it 
 
a) is of pure race French spaniel, 
 
b) is free of the dysplasia of the hip 
 
c) is free from eliminating defects of conformation 
 
d) have a good temperament which makes a marvellous family dog  
 
e) and has the potential to become an exceptional hunting companion. 
 
You will find the list of these French spaniels in the heading “Honor roll” of this website. 
 
 
History 
 
It is on July 16th, 1978 that the first friendly gathering in Napierreville was organized and who joined together about fifteen spaniels. From 1978 to 1985, the role of our association was dedicated to the compilation of a register of breeding in order to make recognize the race near the Canadian Kennel Club and which was obtained in 1985. Since the club endeavoured to bring together amateurs of the race who devote themselves to the maintenance of a standard of conformation and of work which make to our French spaniel a marvellous family dog and if you drive out, an exceptional general-purpose pointer.
