The Beckaby kennel originates from 1993...
...when we bred Golden Retrievers � who went on to success in the show ring � but we now solely breed Cockers.
We bought our foundation bitch, a light blue roan. Springstein Stars Delight at Beckaby (Daisy) from our now dear friend Chris Cook of the Springstein kennel near Tenbury Wells, Worcestershire in 2005.
Chris encouraged us to show Daisy as she thought she had potential. She was proved right after she gained several Best Puppy in Breed awards at Open shows. We moved on to Championship shows where she gained her Stud Book number at 14 months old and she has continued to be placed at most of the shows she attends.
We later added our stud dog Courtmaster Totem at Beckaby (Lewis) from Doug & Sue Telford from the internationally known Courtmaster Kennel. They have given us lots of advice on trimming, showing and whelping methods which has been invaluable.
Lewis is a dark blue roan with a beautiful head for a boy and wonderful confirmation. He puts his stamp on all of the puppies he produces. He has a very kind temperament and loves nothing better than laying in our arms watching TV.
Lewis is much loved and has already sired several litters of strong beautiful puppies and is Optigen PRA and FN normal/clear and is available at stud to approved bitches. He sires blue and chocolate roans.
One of Lewis's progeny is Annilan Mister Ral bred by Miss Sam Whiting. She has had countless wins with his son 'Gary' including many Best Puppy in Breed awards. He joins some very nice dogs already in her kennel that she shows successfully. He won his first CC at Gundog Society of Wales in Oct 09.
Daisy produced her first litter of four pups in July 2008.
We kept a dog puppy from the litter called Beckaby Lunar Shadow (Henry) who is a light blue roan. He has done very well in the show ring and won Best Puppy in Breed at Windsor Championship show in 2009. He has a wonderful temperament and is now available at stud. He is also PRA and FN clear.
We also retained a girl from this litter called Beckaby Isabella and she is a dark blue roan. She is a little character and boss of the house. She is shown lightly and we intend to breed from her in the future.
I have been privileged to judge the breed at open show level which I find most enjoyable and trust one day I will have the pleasure of judging your dog.
