Our Breeding Philosophy

We're retired from breeding now, but during the 15 years our breeding program was active we learned to be responsible dog breeders.
The three most important things we did for our pups:
OFA & CERF testing to the parents, an extraordinary amount of socialization, and carefully choosing the right homes.

Read more about why we like to think that we were a cut above your average Cocker Spaniel breeder.

Our Heritage
