Ashbrook English Cocker Spaniels


Please Note:  We  Do  Not  Ship  Puppies.  We are located in New England, and do not ship puppies to other parts of the United States or other countries.  We suggest you find a good breeder in your area to purchase your pup from.  

Aside from that, please take into consideration all costs of dog ownership and be sure it fits into your budget. You will need to allow for the cost of adequate fencing, quality food and veterinary expenses. Also be aware that this breed requires frequent brushing and needs to be professionally groomed every 4-6 weeks.

Dog ownership is a MAJOR responsibility, and should not be taken lightly under any circumstances. We only want the best for our puppies, and want them in homes where they are considered important members of the family, not "just a dog".  A puppy depends totally on you for all his needs, and is no different than bringing home a human baby.  They need lots of love, attention and structured discipline.  Dogs in general, and English Cockers especially, are very people oriented, and look to you for leadership and companionship.   If you feel you are not up to this lifelong commitment, please consider waiting to buy a dog until your life is better suited.

"It's a cold, insecure world; people have a hard time dealing with one another. And here's this four-legged creature who gives you nothing but love and asks for very little in return."
