Welcome to Ocoee English Springer Spaniels
Successfully breeding for stable temperament, health, soundness and strict adherence to the breed standard since 1972.

We are American Kennel Club Breeders of Merit.
Our kennel prefix, OCOEE, is registered with the American Kennel Club for our sole use in registering English Springer Spaniels.

Our limited, selective breeding program is jointly operated by the mother and daughter team of Kathy Lorentzen and Melanie King. Our goal is to breed excellent quality show dogs that meet the requirements of the breed standard but more importantly we strive to provide healthy, loving, sound Springers to people who desire a top quality companion, obedience or agility dog. We have forty years of experience with this breed and will do everything in our power to provide you with a happy, stable, well socialized puppy that is as free as possible from health and hereditary problems. We are long time members of the English Springer Spaniel Field Trial Association, the Parent Club of the breed.

Are you looking for a well bred, top quality puppy for a companion or show or performance dog?

Contact Jacquie Dean in Texas if you are looking for a boy puppy. She has a four week old litter by Ch. Ocoee Figure It Out ex Ch. Ashwyn N Designer Holy Smokes! Email Jacquie at for complete information.

If you are looking for an older puppy that is already house trained, leash trained and crate trained, contact Kathy at Ocoee for photos and full info on "Hershey". He is a liver and white, nine month old puppy absolutely ready to move into a family situation. Hershey is lively, loves people and other dogs, loves to run and play and would be wonderful for an active family with teenage children who would involve him in their activities. Hershey is show quality and would also make an excellent agility dog, he is fast and agile and extremely sound. He is sired by Gold Grand Ch. Ocoee D sqd With A Vengeance out of Ch. Ocoee Go Wild!
