Welcome to Coventry Cocker Spaniel Club

We are looking forward to welcoming everyone to our Open Show on Sunday, 29th May at Baginton Village Hall.  We have two breed specialist judges from Belgium, Melissa Van Guyse-Apers (Wigglings) for the main show and Hilde Provost (Troubles in Paradise) for Special Awards.  We will also hold a Puppy Walk at lunchtime for puppies 4months and older. Schedules are available at shows or online at www.fossedata.co.uk.  Postal entries close on 25th April (postmark) and online on 8th May.

The Annual General Meeting of Coventry Cocker Spaniel Club will follow our Open Show on Sunday, 29th May.  All nominations for the Committee or items for the agenda need to be proposed and seconded and received in writing by the Hon. Secretary 2 weeks prior to the AGM.


Coventry Cocker Spaniel Club was formed in 1951 and celebrated it's 70th anniversary in 2021.

The Society holds 2 open shows each year and in addition a championship show every other year.  The shows are all open to members and non members

Coventry Cocker shows are popular, the open shows are usually held at Baginton on the outskirts of Coventry near the airport and the championship shows at The Arena, The Sports Connexion, Ryton-on-Dunsmore.

The open shows are friendly affairs with homemade refreshments and a wide variety of classes for all ages and colours of Cocker Spaniels. There is also  a ‘Puppy Walk’ for 4-6month old puppies which gives them a first taste of the show world.

We have introduced  'Special Awards' classes at our open shows.  These are held at the beginning of the show with a different judge.  Placings in these classes do not affect the show proper.  We hope to choose judges from the Breed Council 'C' List as these people will have attended seminars and judged some classes already so your dogs will be in safe hands!

The Championship shows are ‘benched’ which means that each dog has his own space and the show layout is tidy and convenient. The classes include classes for all colours and the standard Crufts’ qualifying classes.  Entries can be made online or by post. 

Coventry Cocker Spaniel Club always welcomes new members and exhibitors to the shows. The shows are also a meeting place for people who do not show so much now and would like to enjoy a day out among friends surrounded by their favourite breed of dog.

The club is involved in organising the Cocker Spaniel stand for The Cocker Spaniel Club at Discover Dogs which is part of Crufts’, Discover Dogs at Earl’s Court and The National Pet Show.  Committee, members and friends bring their dogs to promote the breed to the general public.
