English Cocker Spaniels starting from $2,200.00 https://sunsagesportingdogs.com/available-dogs/
The SunSage kennel includes some of the finest English cocker spaniels in North America. The basis of the SunSage breeding program originates from the original Parkbreck lines of two-time UK Cocker Championship winner Carl Colclough. Their pedigrees include FTCH Jade of Livermere and FTCH Jasper of Parkbreck (1992 UK National Champion). Other notable dogs in the SunSage pedigrees include FTCH Chynkell Goldstar (2004 UK National Champion), STCH Danderw Druid (2006 UK National Champion) FTCH Argyll Warrior (Sire to 2007, 2010 & 2013 UK National Champions) and FTCH Rowston Spikey Aderyngi (Sire to 2nd and 4th placed dogs at 2018 UK National Championships). All cockers come from a proven working field background, either from our personal guide string or from working shooting estates in the UK. The SunSage English cocker spaniels are compact and powerful dogs that displays the typical "merry cocker" style when covering the ground and hunting. The SunSage kennel has a strong focus on correct conformation given the fact that all of our dogs are working, hunting dogs.
DNA Genetic Testing is conducted on all breeding sires and dams (off-spring from parents, that are both clear of the following genetic tests, will also be clear) and includes Degenerative Myelopathy, Exercise Induced Collapse, Familial Nephropathy (cocker spaniel type), Glycogen Storage Disease VII, Progressive Retinal Atrophy, and Progressive Rod-Cone Degeneration.
All breeding sire and dams have screenings for Hips and Elbow Dysplasia performed by a veterinarian with x-rays sent to OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) for grading and certification.
OFA Eye Certifications examinations are performed by board certified veterinary ophthalmologists. A dog that is registered by OFA ERC has bee examined and found to be unaffected by major heritable eye disease. The screening and examinations are performed annually as many ocular diseases may not appear until late in life. The combination of annual screening eye exams and DNA genetic testing to shop rule out heritable disease, show our commitment to ensuring the quality of dogs we produce as well as our integrity to the breed. All breeding dogs are screen each year with the genetic testing being valid for life. Every puppy or dog sold has a valid eye certification exam and paperwork at the time of sale.
