We are very excited to offer a Welsh Springer Spaniel-only Tracking Test as part of our 2019 National Specialty.

The test will be held at the Ottawa Field Trial Grounds in the Southern Unit of the beautiful Kettle Moraine State Forest.

The site is southeast of the intersection of Highway 67 and Highways CI and C in Dousman, WI and is approximately 23 miles from the show site in Jefferson Fair Park.
