SH CH Cuboglach Petite Wave

Huge congratulations to Martyn Ford and SH CH Cuboglach Petite Wave for their success in being awarded Best of Breed at this years Crufts.


Wave has had great success in the show ring this year being the top show dog in the breed for 2015 but she is also an accomplished working dog, not only is she regularly busy on shoots she also picked up a minor award at the SIWSC Breed Confined Unclassified Test last year she also qualified on live game to run in the Spaniel Field Trials in France.


Wave is the 8th generation unbroken bitch line in Martyn’s Cuboglach Kennels.


Congratulation to all who entered and achieved success at Crufts this year with a special mention to Tristan (Kirkmarsh Boaster) who ran in the winning flyball team despite being mis-identified by Peter Purvis on the TV as a Bedlington / Whippet Cross!

Congratulations too to Ms J Hempstead and Mr S & Mrs S Davies & Margerison for their success in the Gamekeeper classes.




A special mention must be given to Pepi Barrington who was invited to take part in Phillipa Williams' Gundog Demonstration where she certainly gave a great display of working a young Irish Water Spaniel.
