This is our beautiful Sansa, a KC registered orange roan sable show type Cocker Spaniel. We were very lucky to find Sansa, who was being rehomed at only four months old due to being constantly attacked and threatened by the other dogs in the family. Although a little nervous of our other dogs for a day or two, Sansa quickly realised that no one was going to hurt her here and quickly gained confidence. Sansa has a particularly beautiful long silky show coat. She is a very loyal little girl who loves nothing better than to be by my side. She loves everyone and has the most loving, quiet easy temperament. She took immediately to motherhood and is a very loving and attentive little mother. Sansa is prcd-PRA and FN clear by genetics.
Meet Caoimhe, KC registered show type Cocker Spaniel. Her name is Irish and means “gentle, beautiful, precious” and it suits her down to the ground. Full of life and love, Caoimhe is affectionate and loving to everyone. She came to us as an eight week old puppy together with her sister Chloe. She has proved to be an excellent mother and when she is not caring for her little ones Caoimhe enjoys her time in the fields with us in all weathers. The colours in her coat produce the most beautiful colours in her puppies – she has had goldens, reds and also the unusual and sought after colour phantom. This is inherited from her tricolour spaniel mother. Caoimhe is prcd-PRA clear and FN clear by genetics.
This is Chloe, sister to Caoimhe, KC registered show type Cocker Spaniel. Equally beautiful and kind, Chloe has the most beautiful deep golden sable coat. In this photo she had been recently clipped – Caoimhe and Chloe do have a long show type coat – perhaps not quite as long and fluffy as Amber, Sansa and Leah but this makes no difference to the quality of their puppies’ coats, which are beautifully soft and wavy. Chloe is also a wonderful attentive little mother. Although she has a golden coat she produces the same variation of colours as her sister Caoimhe as they carry the same colours in their genes. Chloe is prcd-PRA clear and FN clear by genetics.
Amber is a first class example of a show type cocker spaniel. Her lovely orange roan long silky coat is truly beautiful but we do clip it off ! She had just been clipped when this photo was taken. We do tend to clip our cockers both summer and winter. In winter they are outside with us a great deal and get very wet with long thick coats which take forever to dry. We find they are better off clipped shorter and wearing a little waterproof when out. In summer of course they get so hot in their full coats. As we don’t show, we clip for comfort and cleanliness all year round.
Amber has the most loving kind temperament, quiet, sensible and very easy going. Amber found motherhood quite a shock on her first attempt, but second time around she is handling it like a true pro! Her lighter coat seems to predominate and her puppies have all been a lighter champagne/Apricot colour with very attractive little splashes of white on the head. Amber, along with all our others, has been with us since she was an 8 week old puppy. Amber is prcd-PRA clear and also FN clear by genetics – neither of her parents carry the gene.
Little Leah is not so little now! She is just delightful. She has a lovely deep chocolate sable coat and we can’t wait to see what puppies she will produce in the future. Leah is a show type cocker spaniel and has a beautiful long coat. It had been clipped a few weeks before this picture was taken but was already starting to grow back.
Leah is incredibly kind and gentle, full of fun and extremely smart. We are astounded at how fast she learns. We are hoping for a litter from Leah late in 2018. She is is KC registered, prcd-PRA clear and FN clear by genetics.
Introducing Teddy. Born January 2016 he has been with us since he was 8 weeks old. A red bouncing bundle of fun, he is proving to be an excellent stud dog. He is an absolute joy. He gets on well with all other dogs, male or female, and lives happily alongside our other entire poodles. His temperament is truly perfect. Not only that but he is super good looking too. Teddy really does have it all! Genetically clear of prcd-PRA but we also had him tested to acquire an Optigen certificate.
I am now offering Teddy’s services to outside bitches, so take a look at the Stud Services section. If you are looking for a stud poodle in Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Berkshire or anywhere in the M40 corridor we are very easy to access.
Here is little Jesse. We waited for Jesse for eighteen months, having chosen him for his breeding very carefully. He is a direct great grandson of our first stud Poodle, Milandia Captain Scarlet (Sacha) who sadly passed away in April 2018. He looks just like him and we believe he has inherited Sacha’s wonderful temperament. I know I seem to mention temperament a great deal, but it really is the most important quality of all breeding dogs. Jesse is a little smaller than Teddy and if he remains so he will be an ideal size to cross with the smaller breeds such as Maltese or Yorkshire Terriers.
Jesse came to us last September when he was 8 weeks old. He was born in July while we were at the Calgary Stampede in Canada so we felt he should have a cowboy name. He is genetically clear of prcd-PRA so none of his future offspring can be affected by this disease regardless of whether the dam of the puppies carries it or not.
It is with huge sadness that I write this one. Our beautiful Sacha (Milandia Captain Scarlet) passed away in April 2018. He was 14 years of age. He had been with us since the age of 8. We acquired him from some very dear friends and to them we will be forever grateful. He produced the most stunning puppies for us for 6 years. He was such a loyal and loving little dog, always by my side. He is very much missed, but his legacy lives on in little Jesse.
I have not included all the Kennel Club details of our Redkite dogs but they are available on request and all paperwork can be seen here. Copies are also provided with puppies. There have been cases of “identity theft” whereby puppies have been sold using my stud dog’s KC name and health testing details when they were not his puppies. This occurred with Sacha (Milandia Captain Scarlet). I keep records of visiting bitches so I can always verify which puppies have been sired byTeddy.
