LocksHeath Tannymorel (Kirsty). We were thrilled when Kirsty won the C.C. at West of England ladies Kennel Association in April 2016. The first step of the three required for her Show Champion title.

LocksHeath Unforgettable - Shona. A truly memorable day at the British Gordon Setter Club Open Show in June 2015, where Shona won Best Puppy In Show and also her Kennel Club Bronze Good Citizen Certificate.

I have lived with dogs all my life, and have owned setters for over forty years. I initially owned Irish Setters, and registered the Affix I used then in 1975, and began showing. I was bitten by the bug, but I soon discovered that dog showing did not sit well with two very active young children, so I gave up the hobby until nearly fifteen years ago.
I obtained my first Gordon Setter in 1986 and my first show dog in 1998, and my current Affix was registered in late 1999. My first litter produced the Top Puppy in Breed in 2003, and in 2007, I was delighted to make up his litter sister as my first home-bred show-champion. I have enjoyed a lot of fun and success in the show ring.
I breed for sound temperament and type, and above all, endeavour to produce puppies that will go on to make excellent family companions. My puppies are reared in our home, are provided with Kennel Club Registration, and an extensive puppy pack of information. Puppies are occasionally available to approved homes only.
All my dogs have been through the current health tests for the breed, including KC/BVA hip scoring, the DNA testing scheme for Progressive Renal Atrophy, (Late onset night blindness), have a current eye test certificate, and are colour gene tested.
My dogs all live together in with us in our home, as part of the family, and first and foremost are much loved family pets. They all enjoy a happy, active life together.
