SH CH CANIGOU CLASSIC ROCK
achieved the honour of winning
UK TOP BROOD BITCH 2010 (ALL BREEDS)
in the Dog World/Yumega competition.
Classic Rock (Speedy – pictured right), achieved top spot by producing more Challenge Certificate-winning progeny in 2010 than any other brood bitch of any breed. She is also the top brood bitch of all time in Cockers, being dam of five show champions, which between them have won over 50 Challenge Certificates.
She was Top Cocker Brood Bitch each year from 2010 to 2014.
18 Show Champions have won over 170 Kennel Club Challenge Certificates to date.
When Sh Ch Canigou Secon Tan Rose (Rosa – pictured left) took her 7th Challenge Certificate at the National Gundog Championship show on 4th August 2012 she became the top-winning black and tan in the history of the breed. She added 2 more CCs to take her final tally to nine before retirement and has been overtaken by the black and tan bitch Sh Ch Lujesa Starry Eyed, which took her tenth CC in early 2014.
The kennel also houses Sh Ch Canigou Rock Star (Rocky), the first black and tan male to achieve the title of UK Show Champion. Rocky was Top Cocker Veteran in 20017
Cocker Spaniels bred and shown by Tricia have won Best in Show at the Cocker Spaniel Club Championship Show on 5 occasions. On seven occasions, the kennel has won both the dog and bitch CCs at a Championship Show including once, in 2010, with two black and tans, the first time this feat had been achieved in the breed.
