Schaller's English Cockers

Field English Cocker Spaniels

Welcome to Schaller's English Cocker

We are Breeders of English Cocker Spaniels in Wisconsin. Our Field English Cockers are registered with FDSB with some dual registry with AKC. We have one litter per year from our breeding females. I currently have one breeding female, Cutter. Dondi, my brother-in law, has Gracie.

We use our field English Cockers for guided pheasant hunts, house companions, and puppies to new homes,. Our dogs receive daily attention in our home. We are not a kennel. We have dog sat on occasion for our new owners and good friends. We have met some of the nicest people guiding and providing new homes to our puppies.

We have eight grand children. The grand children frequently visit us and the puppies. Our Cockers are very gentle and quiet in the home. They are very tolerant and playful with the children. The puppies are raised in our home, and are well socialized for going to their new homes.

We give back to our sport by volunteering and using the dogs to guide our new young and adult hunters. We get enjoyment out of seeing others enjoying bird hunting.

How we got to be an English Cocker Breeder from Wisconsin.
We started with the show or bench English Cocker Spaniel when our daughter was in 4H confirmation and obedience classes. I ensured that transportation was lined up and supported in whatever way was needed. We raised one batch of puppies with our American Kennel Club (AKC) show dog, Annie. We kept two of the puppies for pets, one for my daughter and the other one for my son. After my daughters got married, both of my son-in-laws liked to pheasant hunt. I wanted to get my own hunting dog and liked the temperament of the English Cocker so I decided on the field breeding. The dogs from field English Cocker breeding have a more rounded head, a lot less hair (we trim the feet and ears), more energy, better health, and are very intelligent when comparing field & show breeding. Comparing the temperament of field and show English Cockers they are about the same, very loving, obedient, and wanting to please. The temperament of our cockers is very relaxed and calm in the home. They do need and demand attention, as they will nudge my hand to get some petting. The dogs love to sit in my lap at the same time. They might bark if someone comes to the door to let you know someone is there, but they will calm down and wait to be petted after meeting strangers. My dogs bark when someone comes to the door, but my daughter's dogs do not, so results may vary depending on the dog.

While they're amazing family dogs, they're an even even better hunting dog. They know the difference between a regular car ride and going hunting. They start to become very excited when they realize they're going hunting and when this happens, they will usually start to shake as they aren't able to contain their enthusiasm. They can’t wait to get to the field and hunt! The English Cockers have earned their nick name “pocket rockets”. They are very energetic, close working dogs. It is fun to watch them work. I get many compliments from my clients about the dogs when I was guiding. I was previously a licensed guide in Wisconsin, but now it's expired because I like to maintain some free time for my grandkids so I can be active in their lives. October to December I go to North or South Dakota & Iowa hunting wild birds. To help promote the sport of hunting to the younger generation, I also volunteer as a guide for the Youth Hunt Events through Pheasants Forever and the Wisconsin DNR Learn to Hunt Program. Through volunteering I now guide and mentor young adults in bird hunting. The English Cockers being close working is an advantage with new hunters.
2024
Cutter is 5 years old in January 2024. This will be her second litter. Cutter is from Jade and Boom. She weighs 23 pounds. Cutter will be bred to Murphy, my grandson’s dog. Her next heat should be in March. When bred 9 weeks later pups will be born, then 8 weeks later you can pick up your pup. I have two people with a deposit down at this time.

Dondi, my brother-in-law, has Gracie. Gracie is 3 years old also from Jade and Boom.
They are not breeding this year as their son's family is living with them while their home is being built. Gracie's first litter had 7 pups.

If you have an interest in a pup, and would like to get on the waiting list for a future litter or if you have any questions please use the contact page to call or email us anytime.
