Don’t know fcuk all about cockers other than a few pals have em for shooting, I don’t shoot, only me load😂. So no need for one, if I was after one tho I’d be on two crows case to go see his. Summat about his in pics I like, so I’d be asking to see em in flesh then I’d wait for a pup if I liked em 😁

cheers.....

Did Bill have a look at the pics, he’d tell you from the pics if they would work or not, save you the heart ache of a failure!

Mystic Bill😂🤣

I thought lads on here were dog men ... but who recommends having a pup because of what they look like (or the parents look like) in a picture? 😬 

 

I wouldn’t give a flying feck what it looked like, or what colour it is!! 
 

I’d want it to hunt like a demon, retrieve to hand and work within shot. 


Id be looking for parents that will hunt cover ... you’d be surprised how many cockers (and springers) are being bred that won’t hunt proper cover (or cover at all). It’s harder for cockers from the off as they’re smaller and less powerful. 

Then I’d be trying to find one where the parents don’t squeak ... cockers are notorious for it and it’s bloody annoying! I’ve been on a shoot where they had 7-8 cockers between them and they were going like a blood choir.  

Then I’d make sure that the breeder knew a bit about them, and spent time giving the pups a proper good start, well socialised with people, children and ensure the pups were bold and confident little things. 

 

 

I saw a cocker at a test last year that wouldn't jump a small fence less than 2ft high (and it had a solid wood rail across the top to make it easy) ... he was 2 year old and the woman said he’d already sired 3 litters ... I asked how he works ... she said oh, she hasn’t really had much time to train him or work him yet ... yet if you asked her what he was like she said what a brilliant little dog he was, what great pups he produces and all that bollocks! 
 

Be careful out there lad. I would possibly phone some of the gundog societies or clubs in your area and ask if they can recommend anyone if you can’t get a good recommendation from word of mouth.

I am quite careful on my approach and try to see through the bullshit.....

I've been in contact with some cocker breeders,  Peter Jones (maesydderwen)  but he has nothing available at the moment,

There was another up mid or north Wales...cant remember the name of that kennels, no joy there.....contacted Ian openshaw with no joy and the last one I've been in contact with is Will cluelee (poolgreen cockers) and he has put me on a reserve waiting list.....

But we'll see what happens.......

What is it with these cocker......their price seemed to have rocketed in the last month or so since I've been paying particular attention to advertisements for them.....they seem to be coming very popular and greedy breeders are out to cash in on it.....

I seen an advert go up in price over 3 days from £1000  to £1400    just because they'd had over 60 enquiries.......

Shocking the greed of some people and the pups in that litter hadn't been born yet......

I'm patient enough and will wait for the right one, doing the right thing from the right breeding......

Cheers

Good work mate 👍🏻 Anita Jones has a litter coming up from her bitch that’s run in the championship, Jeremy Organ was planning some litters this summer and Andy Platt and Jamie Reed up in Scotland are both good names but hell of a trip up there. 
 

If you don’t trial yourself it can be difficult to get one off the big names, as they want them going to other trial homes who they know will win awards because it gets their kennel names out there. 
 

Easier if you want a dog pup as triallers don’t seem so keen on them.

Are you after a trialling dog or you want it for working in the field?
