Canigou Cockers

A small kennel with a worldwide reputation



Tired Tommy 250814


We only have one or two litters a year, to raise puppies for the show ring, so pet puppies are only available occasionally.

We are Kennel Club Assured Breeders, with the Accolade of Excellence.

All our puppies are raised in the house until they are eight or nine weeks old. This accustoms them to normal household noises and ensures lots of attention. After this they move into puppy quarters while frequently revisiting the house. When big enough they have the freedom of the garden to roam and explore in a safe environment.

Here’s another shot of Poppet (left) with Boots (centre) and Millie (right).

Believe it or not Poppet, who has an outstanding playful, affectionate temperament, was rejected 6 times by people looking for a pet puppy. Then our friends Cath and Mark looked after the dogs one Sunday while we were at a show and Cath fell in love with Poppet. A week later she went to join Cath, Mark, Boots and Millie, settling in immediately. Why the rejections? I can only assume that current puppy buyers know more than I do about Cocker spaniels!

There are some more photos of Boots and Millie below.
