Overview of Breeds:

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.
