About us

Cathy and MadisonWelcome to Madilane American Cocker Spaniels. We are registered and in good standing with the Canadian Kennel Club

I have been breeding and showing American Cocker Spaniels since 1996 but my love for the breed started way before then as my mother used to breed and show cockers since 1981. I have been hooked on this breed since my teenage years and for me there is no other breed.

Why do I do this? For the love of the American Cocker, the sport of dog showing and to provide families with loving, healthy , quality pets. All of our dogs are raised and live in our home. They are a very important part of our family. I also breed for quality, not quantity. It is extremely important that our dogs meet or exceed the Canadian Kennel Club Breed (CKC) standard , have very happy, sound temperaments and are above all, very healthy. We breed to improve the quality of cockers and to well represent the breed in the show ring. We have bred dogs that are conformation champions, obedience and therapy dogs as well as agility dogs both in NADAC and the CKC. We belong to the Canadian Kennel Club (CKC) and the American Cocker Spaniel Club of Canada.

We breed buff/red, parti-colours and blacks and have only a couple of litters per year.

Madilane Cockers are consistent winners in the show ring, and all round healthy, happy cockers. I have 2 veterinarians that care for my cockers and will attest and stand behind the health and quality of our dogs.

I dedicate this site to my mother because she is the reason this kennel exists. Her love, patience and understanding as a mother and as a cocker owner and breeder has helped guide me and pushed me to continuously strive to be the best I can be in the show ring, as a breeder, as a mother myself and as a human being.

Think very carefully about this:  'SAYING I DON'T NEED A DOG FROM A REGISTERED REPUTABLE BREEDER WHO SHOWS THEIR DOGS TO THE STANDARD IS LIKE SAYING I DON'T NEED A HOUSE FROM A BUILDER WHO BUILDS TO CODES'. Unfortunately there are far too many 'breeders' out there who either no longer show their dogs and have not done that it in years or have never shown their dogs.  If the breeder is not putting money into their dogs by CURRENTLY showing ALL breeding stock to their CKC championship at minimum against the breed standard which includes temperament then they are breeding for profit ONLY.  Educate yourself on what an actual responsible and ethical breeder is.  If a breeder says they do health testing but then disregards negative or results showing issues of concern, they are irresponsible and unethical.
