    Truely beautiful show cockers! I have a black male cocker who’s gt gt gt grandfather was canigou cambrai and can see the resemblance to your beautiful black cockers.
    Loved your website. You must be very proud of what you have achieved with these fantastic cockers.

    One has to recognise a breeder of your calibre that has spent a life time to perfect the quality that your kennel has achieved.
    Viewing your pages and history I have come to understand that is no easy task. Like they say ” Rome wasn’t built in a day ”
    My congratulation on you’re achievement and I wish for you to continue in breeding such lovely specimen.

    WOW! Having been brought up with a cocker spaniel – and had 11 dobermans plus assorted others over adult life, my heart lurched when I saw your beautiful dogs! I love all of them but especially the black and tans. I see that Rosa’s pups are all spoken for – and clearly she won’t be having another litter too soon, but are you likely to produce any more beautiful black and tans in the near(ish) future? Where are you based? – we are in Surrey (can travel!) We have a lovely 6 year old doberman boy who needs a little playmate. We have always had two. I am taking early retirement in December so it is time to start looking for another puppy. Very best wishes, Christine

    I really enjoyed looking at your web site such quality dogs .I was friends with Jean Smith having imported two cockers from her a son of sunglint and a daughter of sorbrook beechnut in the 1976
    Jean stayed with my wife and I when she came to australia to judge our national cocker show in 2000 .she really loved your dogs especially Cambrai regards

    really enjoyed viewing your site, really nice cockers who look fit for purpose, after showing and breeding Labs for 30 plus years we sadly lost our last 2 (mother and daughter) last year at young ages, my wife and I are now retired and are considering a change of breed to cockers to show but not to breed , we both like tri-colours, black&tans and blue roans, we would only buy from a breeder who does health tests out of choice not because the KC stipulates, are you planning any litters this year which there may be a puppy available to people like ourselves who have dogs first as pets who live in and very much part of our lives

    Hi ,
    We had a pup off you way back in the 1980 s I do not think you will remember it was a golden male as a pet for my daughter Lisa she did send you a letter telling you how well ( Whisky ) did he won several obedience shows and we had a great time with him , we lost him after 11 yrs but we fondly remember him.
    I just thought I would send you a line and let you know thanks very much.
    Yours truly

    loved looking at your site after only showing for 2 years it was wonderful to actually meet Tricia at the end of 2013 at the London cocker show & lka. Her dogs are beautiful I can only dream of such an achievement of so many years of hard work. wishing you all the best in 2014.

    Hi there
    I Just wanted to say how stunning your dogs are. I grew up with a golden male cocker.
    Exactly a month a go I sadly lost my beautiful golden female Holly. She had a tumour on her liver..We had her for 11 amazing years..but i feel we should have had her for at least another 4 or 5. I still can’t believe she is gone. Completely heartbroken. We did everything possible to save her. She slept with us since she was 8 weeks old and my vet commented in her last moments that she was the most travelled dog he knows having come to Italy to help organise our wedding and recently caravanning all over Devon and Cornwall.
    I am a regular visitor to Crufts..this year I will bring over some of my grooming students, I will be there on gundog day so I will keep an eye out for your beautiful babies if you are there this year. Sorry for the big long email.
    Wishing you luck & best wishes

    I had my first Cocker, a blue roan bitch called Tink, a year ago and I am totally smitten. She is lively and incredibly intelligent and totally different to the German Shepherds that we had previously had the honour to love.
    During my web searching for information on the breed your kennel name comes up frequently (hence my visit to your page) and having looked around here I can understand why…….your dogs look wonderful :) Thank you for creating such a useful website and I wish you the very best of luck for the future of your gorgeous Cockers.

    Great to see another Canigou Cocker being successful at Crufts 2013!!! We were lucky enough to have our own Canigou line cocker from 1992 to 2005 (Jolly Court Jester sired by Larendas Gambling Debt to Canigou) – ‘Duke’ – best dog ever!!! The Canigou line epitomises everything that is a Cocker Spaniel’ – stunning!

    Hi Just watched the gun dog group tonight your dog should have been in the final cut, love the website. I have 3 weirdenes at home and was priveleged to ge to know Richmond really well over the past 25 years and also fortunate to accompany him to shows. So was very disapointed when your dog was not chosen today.

    Just seen your beautiful bitch at Crufts and looked on your website. I have a sable Cocker neutered dog just coming up to 4 having previousl had blue roans and he is a totally different character. When he was a pup he was much darker and looked very much like the pup on your black and tan page!

    Hi, I just love looking at all your photos. Watching crufts to see if you are taking part. Can’t wait for our next puppy. Hopefully it will be this year.

    Hello Tricia
    I was so pleased to see a photograph of Tanny the B&T Covana Cover Girl which l and my former husband bred in 1973, l remember her birth so well at the time she was a rare colour then and being quite new in the breed. her Mum we purchased from Miss Jean Lanning Clausentum kennels, then we became friendly with Rene Martin Merryborne which lead to our first litter of Cockers being born in 1973, we showed her as pup but at the time received some very negative comments from some of the staunch breeders around at that time saying she would not do well in the showrng because of her colouring, when we were approached by Mrs Arland who said she could do very well in the USA & Canada we let her go, her journey to the States was delayed by weather conditions and l remember the long hours we waited to hear of when she would reach her destination l vowed then l would never to send another puppy abroad again, as it was agonising, l am sure things are much improved these days, Mrs Arland was very lovely person and telephoned us when she arrived and assured us she was very well, none the worse for her journey just thought l would share some memories with you just to say thank you for giving me the chance to see her photo again.
    I have in the past twenty four hours been blessed with a litter of Cocker Spaniels as it has been many years since l have had puppies l am very excited fantastic website so interesting thank you again for giving so much pleasure.
    Regards Joy

    Just wanted to share with you how beautiful I think your dogs are, I was involved with cockers here in thee states on a very small scale for about 20 years. I was able to come over to Windsor a couple of years ago and see some beautiful true type cockers, wish more of ours over here looked like yours.

    I revisited the Canigou webpages and was very impressed by the new layout and additional contents all of which make the site a must for cocker enthusiasts, some very interesting facts about the early winners and less well known facts about some show winning cockers that I found fascinating. Congratulations on a brilliant and informative site.

  44. On 16 May, 2012 at 5:20 pm Jessica Mary Purgly said:

    I really enjoyed seeing all your beautiful cockers.I met you once or twice whilst you were showing Patent Applied For.and have the super photo of the the three greats.At the time I was in England from Brazil,looking for a stud dog.I fortunately bought Helenwood Diplomat,who was a great producer and Best Cocker in Brazil, the year after he arrived!He had a good life and died peacefully at 13 years old.I still have many (too many!!) of his ggggchildren,and many champions,mostly black!WE live rather a long way from Sao Paulo,so only attended shows 3-4 hours away.Now I have no more to show,and as I have damaged both my knees,it is unlikely that I will breed anymore,shall be very bored!!Good luck for 2012,and congratulations for ypour excellent breeding and successes.Best Wishes,Jessica Purgly(Budapest)

    What lovely spaniels! We lost our old boy after 14years in March. Now counting the days until retirement so I can get another 1 (or 2) have been looking at your dogs and plan to contact 2013-14 to see if you will be having a litter and if any can be for pets as we’d like another black and a red.
