Welcome to whaupley gundogs
Specialising in cocker spaniels and based in the Lake District, Whaupley Gundogs is owned and run by Andrew and Fiona Robinson. Andrew is on the ‘A’ panel of the Kennel Club field trial judges for spaniels and has made up 5 Field Trial Champions and gained field trial awards and wins with over 30 other cockers in the UK.
He has judged trials in Norway, Sweden and Finland including in November 2007, the Swedish Championships. He has judged the British Cocker Championships twice, in 2008 and 2013, on both occasions held at Sandringham in Norfolk.
We take a great deal of care in trying to ensure our cockers are of a nice cocker type and temperament and we try to produce a genuine all round dog rather than an out and out competition animal only suitable for trials.
Without exception all of our trial dogs have worked on normal shoot days during their competition career.
We feel strongly that as cockers become more and more popular it is important to maintain a wide genetic diversity within the breed and work hard to keep our distinct bloodlines.
We have over 20 years experience of owning and training cockers and we know the importance of matching the right puppy or older dog to the owner’s requirements, always keeping the welfare and happiness of the cocker uppermost in our minds.
