Litters planned for this year

 

  LITTERS PLANNED

For enquiries, please email [email protected] or phone Sally - 01460 62871
Matings are carefully planned, with great emphasis on health, temperament and good cocker type.

If you are looking for a very special addition to your family or a puppy suitable for the show ring, then do contact me and we can discuss your needs.

Overseas enquiries :   a limited number of litters are planned during a year - from which a puppy will to be kept for Show;
without the facilities to "run-on" a number of pups, it is impossible to make promises and keep a puppy until four months old
in order to comply with vaccination requirements for the continent.    Enquiries will, therefore, only be considered on a very limited basis.

2021 Puppies

I am not planning any puppies before the end of 2021 - soonest;  

 If you are looking for a Show-type Cocker you should be aware that the number of puppy enquiries being made this past year, the demand for which continues,
has been quite “unprecedented” (I believe that that is the term currently in vogue !);

The Cocker Spaniel is one of the most popular breeds - reflected by the number of puppies being bred and egistered by the Kennel Club
 - the high proportion of registrations will include puppies bred by breeders of Working Cockers, breeders who have a genuine affinity 
for the breed but who do not wish to show or work their dogs - and the "others".

Cocker enthusiasts who Show and breed, who are the guardians of the Breed Standard and who are on top of any on-going recognised
aspects of health issues in the Breed, and who generally form the Breed Club membership, will breed to improve their 
stock and
keep a puppy themselves for Show;  long gone are the big Show kennels with numbers of breeding bitches, consequently you 
will
find that we may have only one or two litters a year - and then we cannot guarantee the numbers of pups born.  
Licence 
requirements now imposed by Government/Local Authorities mean that many exhibitors will have decided no
longer to breed.   We are
 therefore receiving a greater demand than there is a supply of puppies and we are having to disappoint many genuine enquiries.

Inevitably there will be those people who, without any knowledge or thought for the wellbeing of the Breed, think it is a good time to
benefit financially 
from the high demand for puppies; there are some amazing prices - which, presumably, people are paying !
So, be very careful !

 The Cocker Spaniel Club website – www.thecockerspanielclub.co.uk - lists all the Regional Clubs in the UK together with their contact details.
Initially, you should carefully research the Breed before you start making enquiries -
make those enquiries when you are actually ready to home a puppy and be prepared to wait;
limit your colour requirement to either Solid or Parti-colour;  do not be too specific; 
You should allow for the fact that Breed Club secretaries are receiving many enquiries, be patient, persistent and prepared to travel.  
You should be able to rely upon any recommendation of a breeder via a Breed Club.
