Breeder Information


Cockers in the Field


The Cocker Spaniel was originally bred as a hunting dog.  Their job is to help the hunter find, flush, and retrieve upland game birds.  Despite the fact that their appearance has altered significantly since the early days, our wonderful breed can still hold it's own as a hunting companion.

Thanks to the efforts of a very active and dedicated Field Committee, the abilities of the Cocker Spaniel as a hunting dog are acknowledged and respected.  The ASC is proud of the video that two members of the field committee, Ruth Ginzburg and Trish Jackson, developed, "Form Follows Function."  This video sets forth the precept that a properly structured dog can perform its function in the field it was bred for.
