History of Weeping Willow’s

The first Weeping Willow’s English Cocker puppies were born in Belgium in 1972 followed by a second litter in 1978.
The third litter, in 1989, was the lucky one. By mating the lovely blue bitch Quirli vom Schölerberg to a French dog,
who had proven to produce excellent hunting Cockers.
This mating produced the first Weeping Willow’s Champions and litter brothers, Notturno and N’Figaro born in 1989.
The first Weeping Willow’s field trial strain English Springers were born in 1992.
After meeting Patrice Raquin, gundog trainer and handler and also breeder of a.o.
English Cockers, English Springers, Labradors and pointing dogs under the affixe ”de la Petite Sauvagine”,
we moved to France in 1995 and the Weeping Willow’s prefix was kept on.
We now are specialized in breeding and training English Cocker and English Springer Spaniels.

In Januari 2004 we had the honour of receiving the award of
Chevalier et Chevalière dans l’ordre du Mérite Agricole.
