Machine and English Cocker Spaniel (part 1)
On popular resources, ads for the sale of puppies of all breeds for any money take several pages. The price range is surprising, someone offers excellent hunters and small dogs for 5 rubles, another asks for a similar product five times more expensive. What is the reason for such a significant difference in prices, and what can stand behind a beautiful photograph and the general phrase “sold with documents”, we will try to explain in this article.Buy a spaniel cheap
This is how a novice dog breeder thinks, not thinking about pitfalls and hoping for a small fee to get a beautiful thoroughbred dog with an excellent psyche. Indeed, the Internet is filled with ads that offer cute puppies for 5-7,000 rubles. Unfortunately, most of them do not have documents, or rather, a puppy card issued by RKF – the Russian Kennel Federation. RKF puppy card confirms the pedigree origin of the puppy. The presence of this document means that the litter was registered officially, a conscientious breeder paid for the mating, the act of mating and each puppy card. The sum of these expenses significantly exceeds 5-7 000, which means that a thoroughbred puppy from good producers will have a decent value.
English spaniel puppies
Often all dogs with “ears hanging” fall under this breed. In our latitudes, many people are familiar with the Russian spaniel, its American counterpart is known for its snub nose, but all puppies that slightly resemble Snuppy from the Sherlock Holmes series become on the bird “English Cocker Spaniels” or simply “Cocker Spaniels”. Therefore, we return again to the puppy card, which the RKF changes to a pedigree. The genealogy indicates several generations of the puppy’s ancestors. This important document ensures that the dog is thoroughbred, which means it inherits good pedigree qualities. Of great importance are not the “ears that hang”, but the excellent psyche and health of the dog. For these characteristics, genes and proper care are responsible, which takes a lot of time and money. Choosing a dog in the house for many years is better thoughtfully, without rushing, carefully studying what is behind attractive photos and attractive prices.
