As the English Cocker is still a comparatively rare breed in the United States, you may not find precisely the dog you have in mind at a given time, with respect to color, age, sex and convenience of location.

English Cocker puppies may be purchased from a knowledgeable breeder of English Cocker Spaniels. Occasionally adults are available from breeders as well. The ECSCA Rescue Organization also rehomes adults.


Recognition Program Celebrates & Rewards Dedicated Breeders

The American Kennel Club® (AKC®) announced today the launch of the Breeder of Merit program, a new initiative designed to recognize AKC’s core breeders.

“The Breeder of Merit program allows the American Kennel Club to celebrate our dedicated, passionate breeders who truly are the backbone of the sport and the foundation of our organization,” said AKC’s Chief Operating Officer John Lyons. “Our Breeders of Merit are committed to both improving their breed through health testing and selective breeding programs, and proving their breed through achievements in the show ring. They are special and will be emulated by new breeders entering the sport. Being a successful breeder in the Fancy does not come easy. Years of hard work, vision, and a willingness to do the right thing are required to be successful. Our Breeders of Merit have these qualities and deserve to be recognized.”
