About The Owner

At Dakota Cockers, we strive to produce the best quality Cocker Spaniels in the Carolinas.  Kent Gudger, owner of several champion cockers, has over 25 years of experience with breeding cocker spaniels.  Along with his wife Beverly, they live in Kannapolis, NC and are members of the American Spaniel Club.

Our well-loved dogs are housed in a “state of the art” facility that includes heating and air conditioning.  All of our Cocker Spaniels are AKC registered and most are champions. Please see our gallery of photos and Certified Pedigree Certificates.
