The American Spaniel Club has some information on their site:
American Spaniel Club Inc. - Home of the Cocker Spaniel - Guidelines For Breeding

Hopefully someone more knowledgeable on the breed can chime in.

What is a golden cocker spaniel? Golden as in a buff cocker spaniel? Golden isn't a cocker colour.. or are we talking golden retriever x cocker cross?

Colour shouldn't equal any difference within the breed.

I'd want to see CERF testing on the parents, there are a load of eye issues, patellas checked, OFA suggests hips, though it's not as big a deal..

I want a breeder breeding for amazing temperaments as there are too many skeazy bybs breeding nasty dogs..

And I want to see titles.. even if its therapy dog certification and obedience titles as a minimum.

No worries.. I figured, but thought I'd ask. It was possible we were talking golden crosses

Vaccine reactions are slowly becoming an issue.. I hear of a lot of allergies and endless ear infections.. I'd want few to none in the lines she's contemplating.

My 2 have each had an ear issue once in their lives. One got mites, the other a bacterial infection.
