Bailey was a working Cocker Spaniel living in an urban domestic home with a loving but unsuitable family: they could not provide the exercise he needed.

We successfully re-homed Bailey with the family of a game keeper and he now roams 200 acres daily.

At the same time, we also took in Barney, a show strain Cocker Spaniel from a family which did not have enough time for him. He now lives happily with Bailey’s original family as they can provide the lifestyle he needs.

Often dogs from the same breed can have very different personalities, so if you are looking for a pet it can be much better to go for a dog from a ‘Show bred line’ rather than a working line, as the working dogs are often much more demanding from an exercise and training point of view: they have been bred to be busy and very active!
