Frequently Asked Questions

WE ARE ASKED MANY QUESTIONS REGARDING OUR wonderful BREED the engllish cocker spaniel

Ian Openshaw’s kennel is called Rytex. Nigel Carville’s is Astraglen. Both men were very influential in getting me started with English Cocker Spaniels, so the kennel names were combined to make Ryglen.
English Cockers can be used to flush and retrieve most any upland game bird as well as rabbits. Also they would make a great retriever for dove hunters. They could do waterfowl but only in very mild weather, their coats are not water repellent as a Labradors is.
Males 24-32lbs
Females 22-30lbs
