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 three 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?

We are planning two winter 2015/16 litters here at Ocoee. One by Gold Grand CH Ocoee D sqd With A Vengeance out of Ch. Pawmarc Ocoee Dazzled By Magic, the second by Ch. Blackpearl N' TDP's Star Studded Banner out of Ch. Ocoee Go Wild. For information please email Melanie or phone her at 989 244 1515. We are also always happy to try to refer you on to a responsible breeder if we don't have anything available.
