A little about me
Hi Im Heather Difrancesco
I have been in Cockers since I was 9 years old.  My love for Cockers is enormous.
After reading a book called "Prince Tom" I was hooked. My mom bought me my first
Cocker, unfortunately she was a fear biter.   My goal was to improve the
temperament of this beautiful breed.  I also then became interested in getting into
the show world .  

Over the years, I have continuously grown as a breeder/owner handler.  I have been
showing Cockers now for 7 years.  I have gone to shows for the last 8 years.  I
currently have 3 champions and I have had one show litter.
I had to slow down based on the mortgage industry.  However now I am picking up
where I left off.

I chose my kennel name as Stand Alone because of my first show litters, who all
stood on their two feet like a human to use the restroom.   I thought and still think
this is the silliest thing.  I had been trying to choose a kennel name for 2 years and
that was it.  They all still love to stand, how silly is that? With that being said the
name fits!
My dogs have outstanding confirmation, temperament, health, and are just overall
lovable.  The majority of dogs I have are what I use in my breeding program. I am
able to keep and eye on their health and ensure the overall health and well being of
my future dogs.
My line stems from the Dal-Mar line.  Donna Harrington has been a proven breeder
with successful champions, health and temperament.  Donna has been my mentor and
friend through my start in this dog show world.
