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.
