We are very fortunate that our great friend, Raul Pontes Rodriguez of Malaga in Spain, has allowed Pato to join our kennel. Pato arrived at Chanderhill from Spain in February 2018 and has made a big impression with us.

Within weeks of his arrival, Pato was awarded a CACIB and two Reserve Irish Green Star Certificates at the two day Dublin International Dog Show in March 2018!

Pato has gone on to be shown lightly at Open Shows in the UK and made his UK Championship Show debut at the Gundog Society of Wales Championship Show in October 2018, winning Best Dog.

Pato has been busy in the meantime. He is the father of Ria’s litter of pups born in June 2018. This includes Pickle, who is our ‘keeper’ from that litter and who won Best Puppy in Breed at Crufts in March 2019 and European Junior Winner at the European Dog  Show in June 2019.

Pickle has since gone on to be the first UK bred dog to pass the Spanish Breed Club’s Character and Natural Aptitude Test (the TCAN).

Pato has fathered a number of other litters, including one in Norway and several in Spain. In May and June 2019, we had two further litters sired by him. One of the pups from these litters, Dream (Chanderhill Dare To Dream) has also joined our show team and recently made her show debut as a baby puppy in Ireland.

Pato was shown at a number of Championship Shows in Spain prior to his arrival in the UK. This included the National Dog Show of Granada in February 2018, where he was Graded Excellent in Open Dog, handled by Kate.
