Welcome to the website of Dakota Gundogs
We are a family run kennels based in Dalston, Cumbria, owned by Jaseon Atkinson. I specialise in training and field trialling working cocker spaniels, springer spaniels and Labradors and between them have over 26 years experience.
I have kennels and extensive training facilities which include; woodlands, training paddock, rabbit pens and abundance of game. I offer both group and one to one training for all levels from complete novice to expert handler. We also offer residential training within our kennels for our clients.
I aim to breed dogs with good working lines and sound temperaments and are very selective of our breeding and pride ourselves on concentrating on breeding quality. These litters are bred for our own purposes and we often have working cocker pups, part or fully trained dogs available.
All of my dogs are worked on a regular basis throughout the shooting season, picking up and carrying out the day to day dog work and as we are not commercial breeders, we only breed one or two litters each year.
