Our English Working Cockers have very good working origins, most of them Irish, English.
If for show dogs the emphasis is for most cases only on beauty, for working lines it is rather the character, with the instinct of hunting - search - balanced character, which prevails.
The genetic property makes it possible to use the WORKING English Cocker Spaniel for hunting, detection-search or family dog.
All our breeding dogs are medically checked for hereditary diseases that may occur related to the breed (hip dysplasia or eye diseases).
Only dogs that are free of these diseases are used in breeding to avoid hereditary diseases such as dogs that become blind as they get older.
All our dogs are trained in research which ensures that we preserve the genetic properties of the breed. All our dogs have a pedigree recognized by the Belgian Ministry of Agriculture. This pedigree allows us to know the origins of the dog, the percentage of inbreeding, all our puppies will have the DNA test which will confirm the identity of the puppies.
Working dogs have a thicker, more compact coat, shorter ears and a broader skull.
This more compact coat protects them when hunting in ditches and brush,
Shorter ears require less maintenance.
