After 31 great years breeding Cockers, meeting great families that love the breed and showing some beautiful dogs to some wonderful memorable wins, with many great friends we decided in March of 2013 that we are retiring from the breed.
However, we still have many friends that have great dogs and would be happy to refer you.

The Cocker Spaniel is the smallest of the Sporting Dogs…our dogs are between 20-25 lbs full grown. They are bred for temperament, health and appearance. Not only are they beautiful, but they are easy to train, well adjusted individuals with few health problems.
Since 1990 we have bred and finished to AKC Conformation and Performance Titles over 25 dogs. We have also provided loving companions to the littermates of those Champions to wonderful loving families worldwide. There are Clinton Oaks dogs in Korea, Japan, Denmark and Spain, not to mention domestically from California to Vermont and many states in between.
The Cocker is the perfect family pet if you are looking for a small companion.
A “Golden Retriever” temperament in a nice compact Cocker Spaniel size. They are considered a low/no shedding breed. While they lose a little coat during brushing, their hair perpetually grows and does require professional grooming. Pets do not need the ‘show coat’ seen on the individuals in the show ring. The pet styles are easy to maintain and neat looking.
Cockers come in many color varieties. Some breeders specialize in certain colors/variety.
I prefer the ASCOB ( Any Solid Color Other than Black) but I do own Black Cockers that will produce Chocolate or Black and Black/Tan (tan pointed)
I often get folks that want a certain color or gender. I only have a couple of litters per year. My advice is don’t get too hung up on color or if you are, be prepared to wait. Murphy’s law makes sure I never have the color that you want. The color varieties do have subtle personality differences and quirks. In my opinion the most balanced (mentally) of the varieties is the ASCOB or Buff (tan) Cocker. If you want a color I do not breed I may be able to refer you to someone who does, don’t be afraid to ask.
Our next litter is due May 7, 2013
