Manlinson Cocker Spaniels

We are members of the Kennel Club Assured Breeders scheme and The Cocker Spaniel Club - the parent club of the breed.   

Myself (Mandy), husband (John) and children (Matthew and Jacob) have also taken part in the Kennel Club Safe and Sound team displays throughout the country, promoting keeping children safe around dogs.   

We breed healthy, socialised puppies for ourselves to exhibit in the show ring and for other approved families to enjoy.    

All our dogs are health checked and clear of F.N. and PRA. They live as our family companions and are all loved and adored.

After growing up with a variety of pet dogs, I married John in 1993 and moved to Cheshire. We had two rescue dogs; a springer spaniel and a spaniel cross.   

In 2005 I bought my first cocker spaniel, Bluebell, and fell in love with the breed. Bluebell gave us our first litter of puppies in 2007. I kept the first born puppy, SH CH Travellers Joy of Malpas (T.J.) who is my very first show dog and I am so proud of him. In June 2012 TJ gained his Show Champion Title at the Windsor Championship Dog Show. During 2013 T.J joined Leirdals Cocker Spaniels in Iceland. He has been used at stud and been shown. We are very proud that, while in Iceland, T.J. has gained his Icelandic Show Champion Title to add to his GB title.

Mike Wildman expertly grooms and handles our show dogs in the show ring. In 2015, Mike became joint owner of the Manlinson affix and our show dogs.
