Irish Water Spaniel Association.

The Irish Water Spaniel Association (IWSA) is a Kennel Club registered Breed Club promoting the interests of the IWS through its various events and through the publication of its Members Year Book and Newsletters. 


It also aims to promote the breeding of sound, healthy IWS through advocating the use of appropriate KC/BVA Health screening for the breed and participation in current and future Health studies and initiatives.

The IWSA has an active Welfare team which can provide advice, support and assistance when there is an IWS in need.  


New Membership applications are welcomed.

There are currently no new IWSA events scheduled.
