History of the Cocker Spaniel:  

The first mention of "Spanyell" as the spaniel breed has been traced back as far as 1368.  This group was divided into two groups, the 'land' spaniel and the 'water' spaniel.  A further division occurred when the land spaniels were separated by size.  The smaller size becoming the "Cocker Spaniel" and the small or toy spaniels were differentiated from the larger spaniels.  Later still, as the cockers and toys were used for different purposes, they were once again divided with the toys and smaller dogs becoming the English Toy Spaniels and the Cocker Spaniel as we know it today was classified as a sporting dog.  Thus, this is why the Cocker is now considered the smallest member of the sporting-dog family.


They are loving pets for the home as well as very active and responsive field dogs.  Our site is dedicated to the American Cockers Spaniels in Northern California.  The wonderful and loving dogs shown here on our website are all AKC  registered and have been DNA Certified through the American Kennel Club DNA Profile system to ensure legal registry.  Additionally, our breeding pair are also UKC registered to the United Kennel Club.  The puppies will have both AKC and UKC registry documentation provided at purchase and are also micro-chipped. The parent dogs are both very lovable, highly intelligent, active, athletic, quick to learn and fun loving with gentle, mellow personalities plus.  Angel, our breeding bitch, holds UKC and International Championship Titles.
