Danielle is a second generation dog breeder/owner/handler.  She grew up showing American Cockers Spaniels until she acquired her first Field Spaniel in 1998 after a years wait.  Madison is behind all Nautica Field Spaniels.

Having grown up ïn dogs" Danielle has a soft spot for Jr Handlers and have worked very hard to encourage them in our breed.

Danielle has served on the board of the Field Spaniel Society of America and is currently the president of the Fox River Field Spaniel Society and board member of Central IN Kennel Club.

Our goal, is to  breed dogs that excel in the show and performance rings but those that are also happy, healthy family companions.
Kelly joined our team in 2010, as a Jr Handler and active 4H member.    Kelly enjoys being a "boy only home" and in addition to campaigning her young dog to a top 20 position enjoys dabbling in agility, rally and Fast Cat.

Kelly also enjoys working with our Jrs and is an active member of the Fox River Field Spaniel Club and a board member of the Central IN Kennel Club.
Allie, of Fecimus Field Spaniels,  is our British Collaboration and joined our team in 2012.  This has been an invaluable asset to both Fecimus and Nautica as we have been able to import and export dogs to add to the gene pool in the USA and the UK. 

We hope that the borders will open back up soon and look forward to a possible exchange in 2021!
Phillip, of Inspiration Kennels, joined our team in 2012, after his sister (I jokingly tell him she is the smart one!) got a Field Spaniel to show in Jrs.  She went to school and Phillip took over the reigns of showing the Fields and found that this was the breed of his calling.  He too, is a boy only home and just co bred his first Field Spaniel litter with Nautica.
This mother/daughter duo, from Arietta Field Spaniels, joined us in 2013 after Aria was looking for a Field Spaniel to show for a year.  That year has now turned into 7 and we look forward to many more years working together.  Aria, although has a background in performance has taken the reigns showing in the breed ring, and Karmen has found her calling training Agility and Dock Diving.

We look forward to our next breeding together in 2021.
