Woody at the Downs Banks
Hi, my name is Melissa Stubbs and I have been breeding and working Cocker Spaniels for over 15 years. I also breed and work Labrador Retrievers all on local shoots at least 3 days a week in the shooting season.
I work part time as a qualified veterinary nurse and aim to breed happy and healthy puppies that have been well handled and should make good working companions, active family pets or agility dogs.
My dogs are fully health tested including genetic tests for gPRA and FN.
I have 4 cocker spaniels: Penny who is an 11 year old and still working; Woody (shown above) a blue roan who's 9yrs old and combines working on shoots with dog agility in the summer.
Woody is a grade 6 with his silver agility warrant from the kennel club. I also have showed him at Crufts in the BASC working gundog classes and he won his class at the 2012 Crufts, making me very proud.
He has an amazing temperament, being very biddable and highly intelligent.
Next we have Ruby and Dotterel who are half sisters - both roans, one orange, one blue. They also work and do dog agility (grade 6 and 5) and both have their bronze agility warrants.
I also have 1 springer, Cassie, who is 11 and still working, and 5 Labradors: Bella who's 12 and semi retired, Laya and Max, both 8 years old and enjoying their work, two young Labs still in training, Finn and Dee.
All my dogs are well socialized with excellent temperaments that enjoy working and also walks up Cannock Chase and trips to the beach.
My kennels are only small and I only breed a maximum of 3 times from any bitch, so I don't always have puppies every year and I don't re-home my bitches when I finish breeding with them - they are part of the family and I keep and care for them until they die.
When I have litters I look for forever homes. My puppies come with Kennel Club registration, 4 weeks free insurance, and a free puppy pack, which includes a docking certificate, a feeding guide, sales contract, and evidence of a vet health check and endorsements.
My puppies are fully wormed, well-socialized and are fed on Eukanuba.

I thought you'd like to know that Ruby has had her puppies. She had seven healthy pups and all have new homes to go to except for on lovely blue roan bitch.
She'll be 8 weeks old this Saturday, and I'm looking for a working/active family home for her. She's been reared in the house and is such a beautiful puppy.
