The Field-Bred English Cocker Spaniel is a hunting dog that’s getting more and more popular every year.┬áThis weekend, Puck and I are heading up to Wildwind Kennels in Knox, ME, to check out the Central Maine Spaniel Club’s Cocker Spaniel Field Trials. The weather is going to be great and there should be a lot of field-bred Cocker Spaniels on hand. If you’ve never seen these dogs in action, you should definitely check them out.

You can read more about these great little dogs here.

This quick video shows a Field-bred Cocker hunting rabbits somewhere in the UK.

    I have shot quail over these dogs, which have become popular flushing and retrieving dogs used in conjunction with pointers. They do an excellent job putting quail up out of heavy cover and are very impressive retrievers. Very enthusiastic hunters – you can’t help but have fun shooting over them.

    Yeah – I hear they’re very popular down there. I would love to hunt one on grouse & woodcock over a Pointer. The one’s I’ve seen have been very “handy” and I think this would would make them ideal for flushing these birds.

    I’ll shoot a lot of pics & video this weekend and hope to post it next week,

    Enjoy the weekend.
