Field bred Cocker Spaniels are great little dogs, and in the U.S. today, they’re more popular than ever. Over the next few days, I’m going to put up a few videos showing what they’re can do. This one is from Tom Ness @ Oahe Kennels. He’s a top trainer and breeder of these little dynamos.
Sky and I headed up to northern NH on Saturday to say “hello” to Lexi and Craig Doherty. Craig runs Wild Apple Kennel, and this is the second season he has worked with Lexi. Lexi left for training camp at the end of June, and this was the first time the Sky has seen her since […]
