Owner and Operator 

Hello, My Name is Melissa.  I am the owner here at Morse Orchard Kennels. 

       In 2018 I felt it on my heart that it was time to close my two daycare centers of (12 years) to stay home with my son and home school him. It was a hard decision and the best decision.  Being home with my son was such a blessing.  After some time, however, I knew it was time to start a new adventure. 

After researching, studying, and talking to many people, I decided to buy my first few female English Springer Spaniels. I know you're asking why English Springer Spaniels. Well let me tell you why. I wanted a dog that was loyal yet had a high energy level for outdoor activities.  Like myself. I wanted a dog that was a wonderful family pet as well as a hunter.  Because we all know here in Maine, hunting is big. I also wanted a breed that wasn't too big or too small. Springers are that perfect match. They are loving, loyal, friendly, sweet, very smart, and quick to train. I just love the breed!

With Help from a few mentors along that way, I began my journey. Raising puppies. It hasn't always been easy, there is a lot to it, but well worth the joy in the eyes of families when I hand them their puppy.  

My next step was coming up with a name for my business. Some might assume that it came from the name of our road, and yes that does ring a bit true but only because the name of our road is a family name. Let's back it up a bit to the night my first female was due to give birth, which was an exciting time here at home. This is when Luna was born! The first puppy I welcomed into the world.  Luna is now a special breeding mama here. 

Little did we know that on that same night my children's grandfather had passed away. The home we live in was the home he build with his own hands. It felt fitting to dedicate the business after him. That is how Morse Orchard Kennels was named. Morse after his last name, and Orchard because we live on an apple orchard. Actually this location was once called Morse Apple Orchard.
