In announcing Mrs Sue Young's appointment, the committee of the Cocker Spaniel Club of Victoria Inc, expect that in the interest of fair play to all, that those exhibitors intending to enter at the 2022 National Cocker Spaniel Championship Show will refrain from making contact with our judge via social media, email and all other forms of communication. Should verified information of an approach to the judge be brought to the attention of the Committee, the person/s may have their entries rejected in accordance with Dogs Victoria Regulations.



Philip & Susan Young (Canyonn)


Philip and I have been involved with Cocker Spaniels all our married life, 50 years this year.

We started with a gorgeous black and white ticked bitch, as time passed we soon realised ‘Judy’ was not up to the expected show standard, although she was loved and cherished for nearly 14 years.

After a few years of going to shows and just watching and learning about our lovely breed we decided to concentrate on solids, our first red bitch was acquired from Mrs Sims (Rockaydon), unfortunately we lost her to cancer at the tender age of 14 months.  Our next red bitch was similarly bred to the first one and she became our first show girl Rockaydon Amberlyn  (Amber). Amber was the start of Canyonn Cocker Spaniels and all our dogs to this day are descendants of her.

The love of Cockers has taken over our lives and what a journey it has been, starting our judging experience in the late 1970’s working our way from Open shows to judging Championship shows my first CC’s in 1989 and Philip in 1995.  I have judged in all Scandinavian countries, Hungary, Holland, Spain, Portugal, France, Romania, Russia to name a few (Philip similar).  We have both been very lucky to have had the honour of judging the Cocker Spaniel Club of UK and Crufts.

We are both very honoured to be asked to judge in Australia and very much looking forward to seeing our beloved breed down under.



The venue for the 19th Cocker Spaniel National has been booked at the KKC Park State Dog Centre, 655 Western Port Highway, Skye, Victoria and will be held in the Boxhall Pavilion. The pavilion is an undercover indoor facility and exhibitors will not need to bring gazebos.

An information booklet is being prepared which will contain information about the venue, accommodation and other useful information to help interested exhibitors plan for a successful and enjoyable time while attending the National. Until the information booklet is released, details about the National will also be updated on the Cocker Spaniel of Victoria Inc Webpage.
