Welcome to workingcockerspaniels.com. We are private breeders based in The Forest Of Dean which is close to the welsh border. Over the years we have had many breeds of dog including German Shepherd, Doberman, Collie, Springer Spaniel and Terrier but our favourite by far has to be Working Cocker Spaniel....
The working Cocker Spaniel is without doubt one of the most faithful and loving dogs you could hope to come across, with their good nature and spirited high-jinx, they are the ultimate companion in the field and in the home. They can be a highly polished gun dog, an award winning field trials dog or a much loved family pet.
The Working Cocker comes in a variety of colours from white to lemon, through brown and to black. They are a proud looking dog when working and can act the clown when they’re not! Each Cocker is unique, but all have an extraordinary ability to enjoy working effortlessly for whole days and on the other hand to enjoy sleeping effortlessly for whole days!
Although people are quick to judge the Working Cocker as too excitable, playful or even unruly, in the right hands they will be focused, energy bound and skilled companions. They are generally the perfect size to flush out all sorts of wildlife in dense brush areas and to retrieve many kills from pigeon, rabbits, pheasants, ducks and sometimes even hares. Don’t be fooled by their compact size though, they can very often run rings around larger breeds and find kills a larger dog cannot.
As well as being a loyal companion to the sporting gunman, they are also a perfect family pet. Not too big, not too small they offer love unconditionally and enjoy being at their masters side, whether going for a walk or watching tv. Most cockers prefer to be ruled with a firm hand, give them an inch and they will take a mile, however they are happiest when they know where they stand and who is boss. Once they know this they will be eternally loyal to their lucky owner.
One thing is for sure there’s never a dull moment when a Working Cocker Spaniel is around, they are worth their weight in gold for entertainment value alone.
We currently have five Working Cocker Spaniels. Cher, Homer, Kiki, Mindy & Sylvie are all stunning Cockers with good quality pedigree’s behind them from lines including Maesydderwen and Chyknell Goldstar which are internationally recognised names within Working Cocker Spaniel breeding and Field Trials Winners.
We also use Homer as a Stud dog, he is available on request and we can be contacted via email anytime - firstname.lastname@example.org. We welcome any questions regarding using him as a stud dog, so feel free to contact us.
