Haunsperg Gundogs

Keeley and Simon Newman-Jones






My earliest memories of dogs is growing up in a house shared with my parents Labradors and Kerry Blue Terriers.  I "owned" my first dog a very long number of years ago!  I did not follow my parents dog breeds, but instead entered the world of the HPR's - the hunt, point and retrievers, by owning Weimaraners.  The   Weimaraners were predominantly worked, in the field and by competing in working trials and obedience competitions.  In addition a small amount of showing was undertaken.  I have continued with the HPR's  with predominantly the Bracco Italiano and also the Hungarian Wire-haired Vizsla.  Once again the dogs are multi-purpose, working and showing.  In particular the Bracco Italiano working as a search dog.  No matter what field the dogs are part of, first and foremost they are family pets.  We live in the beautiful Lake District where the dogs accompany us on the fells.   Over the years I have served on various training and breed club committees.  I was previously the Chairman of the Bracco Italiano Society and the founding secretary of the Hungarian Wire-Haired Vizsla Club of Great Britain.   I teach ring craft for the show environment and judge up to Championship show level, being on a number of gundog judging lists.   I am currently a member of the Bracco Italiano Society, the Hungarian Wire-Haired Vizsla Club of GB and SABI (Societa Amatori Bracco Italiano).   Simon is a superb, long suffering dog show husband who is in charge of bag carrying and coffee buying when required! In fact the most important part of the team and one I could not cope without.  Keeley Newman-Jones
