Where happy, healthy, quality Cockers are born and raised!
Welcome to Hallmark Cockers! I have owned cocker spaniels my entire life since I was a very small child. I have always loved the breed and spent many years learning as much as I possibly could about them before deciding to breed them. It is my desire to help others obtain beautiful, well-bred cocker spaniels that hold to true AKC breed standards. Here at Hallmark Cockers, we are striving to produce the most beautiful and healthy dogs we can for pet and show homes. * All our breeding dogs are checked for hip dysplasia, luxating patellas, heart issues and more by a licensed vet. We also have all our breeding dogs CAER certified by an ophthalmologist for eye issues including juvenile cataracts and glaucoma. * We are also pleased to announce that we do DNA testing on ALL of our adult cockers for several genetic, hereditary diseases to help ensure we are only breeding and producing the healthiest cocker spaniels possible. The genetic diseases we will be testing for include: Degenerative Myelopathy (DM), Excercise induced collapse (EIC), Familial Nephropathy (Hereditary nephropathy, Nephropathy, FN, HN), Glycogen storage disease VII (Phosphofructokinase deficiency, GSD VII, PFK deficiency), Progressive Retinal Atrophy, Progressive Rod-Cone Degeneration (PRA-PRCD, PRCD), Protein Losing Nephropathy Autosomal Recessive Hereditary Nephropathy (COL4A4 Exon 3) and more! * Hallmark Cockers come from wonderful champion bloodlines. Our dogs are our babies and are lovingly spoiled and cared for in our home environment. All our puppies are born and raised inside our home and socialized with a variety of experiences from birth till time to go to their new homes. We use the Puppy Culture program to help socialize them and prepare them for real life environments. We also play a variety of sounds via cd from birth till they go home to help them become accustomed to a wide variety of noises they may encounter in their life and we also do ENS (early neurological stimulation) to help them start out on the right path to successful adulthood. We do not allow our puppies to go to their new homes till they are at least 8 weeks of age as this is best for them. We also have a wonderful partnership with Baxter & BELLA online training school. We have a special discount code that will give you 25% off the LIFETIME membership fee when you join! This online training program has tons of valuable information, one on one help from personal trainers and more! Please see our Puppy School tab to check out this amazing training rescource.
