Kennel Club Academy Launch of the Curly Coated Retriever Breed-Specific Films

The end of July saw the launch of the CCR Breed-Specific films on The Kennel Club Academy. They were filmed back in October 2019, with Caron Chattwood & Nigel Spraggins from the CCRC working hard with the KC to finalise them. This was an enormous task & we thank you & those who gave up their time for filming, for your efforts.
To enjoy the films you need to log into your Kennel Club account, go to the Academy section, click on Breed-Specific Films and enrol on the Curly one.

Nell the CCR

Nornie becomes ‘NELL’ at the CCRC Champ Show

Here’s a photo of Nigel & Sandra Spraggins’, Nornie, dressed up as ‘Nell’ a Curly Coated Retriever from the 1930’s. The silver tin on the jacket worn by Nell was a collection box, and the story goes that Nell collected £35 in donations in support of the Lifeboats…
The jacket & collar came from Dave Olmerod, husband of much missed Olwen.

Such a lovely story from our breed’s history…..
