Don't forget the EB is an HPR - Hunt Point Retrieve style of dog. This makes for some lack of welcome amongst spaniel and retriever handlers and clubs - not universal however. If you are in East Hampshire or West Sussex try Leconfield Working Spaniels or try approching Weimeraner or German Wirehaired or Shorthaired Pointer clubs for instance. Take some time with Rory Major (Bryantscroft Gundogs) he has after all madu up a Brittany to FT CH status!
