“I bought my first springer in 1973 and purchased my first field bred springer in l990. I have been running field trials since 1992. Doorcreek Kennels is the home of many champions; here is a few: FC AFC CFC Doorcreek Megan (2nd place in 2000 Canadian Nationals), AFC Doorcreek Annie, FC AFC Doorcreek Jake (CM 2001 Canadian National, Sire to NFC AFC Harvest Moon’s Cinnamon Girl ) and AFC FC Doorcreek Hailey’s Diamond (4th Place at the National Amateur Championship 2006). I have had great opportunities to judges nationals including: 2007 National Amateur Championship along with the 2008 National Cocker Championship. I have been breeding field bred Springer Spaniels since 1993. I strive for natural ability and drive in my breeding. I continue to hunt my dogs as well as field trial them. I believe that is a big plus in a dog’s growth.”
“I had been running and judging springer trials for 12 years and did not own a Cocker Spaniel and started to judge cockers; the rules are very much the same. After judging them for a few years I knew where I wanted to get my first cockers from; I fell is love with two females FC AFC Fallen Wings Piasa Bell and FC AFC Corazon Chyknell Oak Cookie and I was able to get a puppy from both of them. Thank you breeders for allowing me to have these fine field bred Cocker Spaniels to start with. ” Chuck Nelson.
