What we do

Gundog work

The gundog breed group is divided into four categories - Retriever, Spaniels, HPR, Pointers and Setters. 

The Gundog awards are broken into 6 stages. A field test must be passed to attain the award. Field tests differ from field trials. Tests are one dog marked against a standard whereas Field Trials are against up to 20 dogs marked against each other. There are also separate tests for each category of gundog.
The shooting season here in Scotland only lasts 4 months. Rabbit, pheasant, partridge, woodcock, duck, geese and pigeon are the majority of game hunted in our area. We beat, dog-in and retrieve in local shooting estates for a few days of the season. 
Injury is a real problem for the dogs. They crash through the undergrowth and tear through fences with barbed wire while working the beating line, with very little care for their selves. Although they absolutely love their gundog work, our dogs can't be injured and risk their agility career too. Due to this, we limit the number of days we work our Rapidgold team in the shooting season.
Situated in NE Aberdeenshire, I can offer you training / advice for your gundog.


We also compete in dog agility. This is great fun for both dog and handler, and if you demonstrate a good team you may be awarded by rosettes!


Lexi has shown some amazing ability in this type of work and is a very strong and worthy opponent currently competing at grade 6.

As a member of the Kennel Club Assured Breeder Scheme you have peace of mind that you will be getting one of the best bred and reared pup around. We regularly health test our gang and only use fully health tested stud dogs to produce the best pups to further the breed. All pups are sold with a puppy contract and are microchipped for your peace of mind. We are the only working cocker spaniel breeder in Aberdeenshire to be in the scheme and already have people on a waiting list for next time we breed.


We do not believe in producing the maximum amount of litters per bitch permitted by the Kennel Club. We don't breed for profit; I only breed to continue my strong line. 

have dedicated my life to enhance the cocker spaniel breed standard. Health tests, gene pool and fit for function are my priorities. 


We are happy to export pups, just get in touch for more info.


We had a litter of pups with FTW Goldengroves Gripper: born September 26th 2013. 

We had a litter with FTCH Rollafields Redbud at Naxshivan: born March 5th 2017.

We will have a litter with FTCH Bishwell Barcud in 2019



Scottish breeding is getting far too close! Responsible breeders do our best to enhance the breed, reduce health problems and lower the in-breeding statistics.


Our stud boy Zest is available for stud service. His pedigree, hereditary clear health results and physical ability should all enhance the breed lines of Scotland. For more info see my boy's page. 



We offer advice for all that is the brilliant working cocker spaniel!

From training, eating advice, kennel builds, pedigrees, rescue centres, doggy coats and collars, grooming, obediance...... Endless topics we can help you with over facebook of just give us a call.


And now, we are sponsering the exciting MadSpaniel Agility League by supplying the trophies for the winners.
