Looking in the likes of Gumtree and Freeads spaniels can be had for around £350-£600. Family pets most of the time. You go on gundogs sales and Spaniels can be had from£280 to £400 most of the time with all the right lines. Where is the logic? Spaniel rescues are overloaded with 6 month to two year olds where folk have bought not understanding the breed. Why do folks pay over the odds for something that looks cute when they do not understand that these creatures need to run. Having worked with some of these rejects basics not taught, no recall, shadow chasing wrecks in some cases it is heart breaking but in there there are some excellent workers bought as pets. You looking for a basic worker, try the rescues. A lot of dogs are just ready for training and in the right hand make excellent working dogs.
