How to find reputable working breeders in England?
« on: January 28, 2021, 06:39:14 PM »
Good evening all

I have just joined this forum, so a big hello!

My family and I are looking to buy a working cocker (preferably golden) and we are wondering how to find reputable breeders? I have looked on the KC website and have managed to get on one waiting list but was hoping to find more to keep our options open (as we understand finding a golden worker can be tricky!). My friends who have dogs have advised trying to find more breeders but we are so worried about contacting the ďwrongĒ type of breeder. Can anyone help us in our search?
Many thanks!

Hi and welcome

I am sorry I can’t suggest anything but just thought I would say hello.

I am getting my new working cocker from the breeder we used over 14 years ago, they are on the KC website but have a waiting list as only have one litter a year (although has 3 breeding females that I know of)

I am now going to upset you (not intended) we were after a black female, unfortunately mum didn’t have one but we will be the owners of a golden Girl in 8 weeks time

Wishing you all the best in your search

Hi Cazza

Aw how lovely for you! Iím sure you canít wait! Do you mind me asking what you paid for it? Iíve been given quite varying ideas of what I should be paying so would be interested to know. Thanks
