Additional Tests

dna iconGenetic Test

Acral Mutilation Syndrome (AMS) is a genetic disease that causes affected dogs to compulsively lick, overgroom and bite their paws. This can cause recurrent injuries and infections. The condition can be extreme and even result in the dog being euthanised if the signs cannot be controlled.

dna iconGenetic Test

Bernard-Soulier Syndrome (BSS) is a genetic bleeding disorder caused by abnormally large platelets in low numbers, meaning an affected animal cannot form clots properly after tissue damage. It can lead to life-threatening bleeding issues following surgery or injury. There is a DNA test available to identify whether a breeding dog is carrying this condition.

dna iconGenetic Test

Exercise Induced Collapse (EIC) is a genetic condition mainly affecting Retrievers and Spaniels. It results in the dog collapsing after periods of intense exercise, even if they are normally able to cope with lower levels of exercise. There is a DNA test available which can indicate if a breeding dog is carrying this disease.

dna iconGenetic Test

Canine Phosphofructokinase (PFK) Deficiency is a genetic disease resulting in low levels of the PFK enzyme. It can result in extreme muscle fatigue, muscle cramping and severe anaemia. There is a DNA test available to identify if a breeding dog is carrying this condition.

About the Breeder

A little about us

Hi there, my name is Cara and with my partner Rhys and our beautiful 4 kids - we run Happy Feet Cocker Spaniels. The whole family is very much involved in our breeding program. We started off with our two breeding dogs - Rocky and Skye. Fell in love instantly with the breed and how smart and well-natured they were.

Why we got involved in breeding

They have brought so much joy to our family and we wanted to provide that same opportunity to other puppy buyers looking for a very affectionate, smart and calm breed of dog.

Our special touch

We've done DNA testing on our breeding dogs and ensure that between litters - Skye has enough time to rest, recuperate; and once she is ready - we look at planning to have another litter. We want ensure that our puppies to go loving forever homes, so apologies in advance if we ask a load of questions - our goal is…
