Upcoming Breeders Education Seminar!

Notice: Due to then large entry at 2022 Regional Specialty, this event is postponed.

Please plan to join us for a fun and informative event, “Build A Dog – The Proper Cocker”. We will be working in teams as we build dogs from felt cut outs where each team selects parts to build their dog from. These pieces are placed on felt boards. A discussion will follow on the dogs the teams have built!
I promise you much laughter, learning and discussion. This program was presented approximately 25 years ago with our American Cocker Spaniel Club and was well received and enjoyed. Much work went into taking the old and yellowed parchment pieces of the Cocker and making an entire new breed from them. Without the help of two highly talented artists in our breed, Debbie McClelland and Sue Janossey, the project would not be available. This literally was a labor of love and it is my hope this program brings together all of us; be you a breeder, owner, exhibitor or handler. The program is presented in an informal and non- judgmental environment. Please place aside time to join us.
Looking forward to seeing you all!
