'Fit for Function' Working Cocker Spaniels and Labrador Retrievers are our passion.


Folkvang is a small hobby kennel. All our breeding stock is fully health tested - please follow the links to individual dogs for their results. We live with them,compete at agility with them, play with them and above all else; love them. They all live in the house with various other animals rescued for different reasons. Sometimes we breed a litter of pups. They are available to carefully selected homes. Visitors welcome at any time. We give life long advice on behaviour and training, and our pups can always come home again if family circumstances change.

All Folkvang pups are sold with a contract of sale. This is to safeguard the future of the individual pup as well as the welfare of both Labradors and Working Cocker Spaniels. They are all Kennel Club registered, and the parents are fully health tested. The pups KC papers are endorsed. All details are discussed and explained fully when you visit.

I am no longer a member of the Kennel Club Assured Breeders Scheme as the service they offer has deteriorated recently. However you can rest assured that I will continue to meet or exceed their standards across the board. Long before the Assured Breeders Scheme existed I health tested my dogs and only bred for top quality animals, and used all available science to help raise sound pups that can cope with the world.

We believe in giving all our puppies the best possible start in life and recommend you check out - "Puppy Culture: The Powerful First 12 Weeks That Can Shape Your Puppy's Future,"

I have also been inspected by Reading Borough Council (2018) and have been issued with Reading Borough Council Dog Breeder Licence No: 000001.

I would like to thank the friends and puppy owners who have let me use their photos on this website - a couple of very good photographers can be found on my Links page.
