Arise Dame Ria

Ria becomes a United Kingdom Show Champion.

We are so thrilled to announce that our beautiful three year old SWD bitch, Ria (Rayaragua Ria Del Chanderhill) is now a UK Show Champion, subject to Kennel Club confirmation.

Ria was “made up” to this title on Sunday when she won her third KC Challenge Certificate at the Darlington Dog Show Society Championship Dog Show. To be crowned a Champion in the UK, a dog or bitch has to win at least three Challenge Certificates under at least three different judges. Ria reached this milestone on Sunday.

Ria’s path to the Champion title is surely one of the most amazing in the breed’s history, as all 3 of her Challenge Certificates have been won when handled by 12 year old Lauren Bridges, who only handled Ria for the first time in March. Lauren is now the youngest person ever to make up a SWD Champion in this country.

Sunday’s title was Ria’s fourth Champion title. She is also a Champion of Belgium, Switzerland and Ireland. Ria is also a pending FCI International Champion.

Ria’s achievements are very special to us as she is our first UK Show Champion. She came to us from Spain in October 2016 as seven month old puppy. We are so delighted with her, both as a show dog and as a family pet.

Ria is also a super mum to our Pickle (Chanderhill Bit of a Pickle), who was the Best Puppy in Breed at Crufts in March and in June went on to win the European Junior Winner title at the European Dog Show.
