I've gone over from terriers to cockers, not quite got the killer drive but a joy to run and so easy. Mine love to find deer and give tongue readily (won't ever make ftch!) which suits me, they are from top of the line stock so the trait shouldn't be??

IMO they're a breed prone to yipping, no matter the breeding. Again, just my opinion, but because of this steadiness work early on is important to avoid it.

But I'm certainly not chasing trophies and would prefer a dog overly steady than overly driven. Having a pup out around chucks at 8 weeks and at 6-8 months walking poults back teaches them a lot about self control.

You can see the crazy in that choc roan. :laugh:

I love the cockers. They're a good fit for me, personally.

You got into a cocker … Fukcing pervert.

Yeah I can see that that would help, I'm only after a good Bush dog that will push anything and everything out to the runners so the steady gundog part is not that important to me. As long as they come in when called and are stock steady I'm happy for them to get on with the job, the noise is actually a bonus. Mute terriers were an issue for us, who'd have thought the solution was a mental cocker 😂

Have a look at the ukcockerspanieldatabase, great site with lots of ancestry info on your dogs lineage.
