Svendborg, July 2015
We, that is my husband ( my kennel-boy ) and I,
are living just outside of the city named
which is located at the southside of the island
Svendborg is the second biggest town on Funen
and the natural centre for both locals and
visitors on South Funen and in the
archipelago.Svendborg has preserved its old
heart with its narrow crooked lanes, squares and
Svendborg's history goes back to the early
Middle Ages, known then as Swineburg. Medieval
Svendborg was a thriving town with trading,
crafts and shipping and surrounded by sheltering
walls and moats. In the late Middle Ages
Svendborg featured among the most important
trading towns in Scandinavia.
In the 19th century Svendborg grew to be one
of Denmark's most important seafaring towns.
About 1850 more than half of all Danish wooden
vessels were built in the many yards along the
shores of Svendborg.
Today's Svendborg is a unique mix of old and
new,of atmosphere and the heartbeat of our time.
In 1986 we got our first Welsh Springer Spaniel
from the kennel "Sweet Chester". Then my
interest in breeding started. In 1993 we had to
have our own kennel, and I called it Blazewood.
Later on I also got interested in the rare Field
Spaniel. Since 1986 most of my life has been
am a member of the Danish Kennel Club and the
Danish Spaniel Club. I have taken a breeder
course at the Danish Kennel Club.
