At Ocoee, we strive to produce the healthiest, happiest puppies possible. We breed only to advance our line of show dogs, never just to supply a market. We raise our puppies "underfoot" to assure that they are extremely well-socialized, and we utilize Dr. Carmen Battaglia's program "Developing High Achievers" on all our puppies to give them the very best start in life.
Our puppies have Champion parents that have been fully health tested and have outstanding temperaments. Ready to go to their new homes between 8 and 9 weeks of age, the puppies are vet examined, eye checked, completely parasite free (internal and external) and started on their vaccination program. Our companion puppies are all sold with spay/neuter agreements.
We do our utmost to match each puppy with the right family. The sex and color of a puppy are secondary in importance to the puppies individual temperament and energy level, and this is where our experience comes in-we will select the puppy that will best suit your household.
Please understand that we DO NOT sell puppies on the basis of their markings. Every Springer has unique markings and that is a part of the charm of this breed. Our breed standard says nothing about markings, only about correct color.
Do not let yourself be fooled by people marketing what they call 'rare' or 'unusual' colors. This breed comes in only black or liver, in combination with white, ticking, roaning or tri color points. There is no such thing as a 'purebred' sable or off color English Springer Spaniel. Unfortunately more and more people who are breeding for money only are producing these cross bred dogs and calling them 'purebred'. They simply are not.
BUYERS BEWARE-all of these dogs below are being marketed as 'purebred and AKC registered English Springer Spaniels with health testing'. NONE of these dogs are purebred and the only testing they generally do is to find out what color genes they carry. The 'Greeders' who are mass producing these dogs for profit only are charging outrageous prices for what are basically cross bred mongrels. Doing your research is extremely important, now more than ever.
