Louie is the epitome of a true show dog in every sense of the term. He has an incredibly free spirit, a personality that will captivate any audience, and he lives life with a constant smile on his face. He is well-known for his truly effortless, floating movement and his strong, slightly sloping topline, both of which come together to make for an awe-inspiring package while on the move.

In addition to being the first American Cocker Spaniel in breed history to earn the title of AKC Grand Champion, finishing the title in just five shows with (5) five-point major wins, Louie is a Best in Specialty Show winner as well as a fifth-generation Sporting Group winner thanks to a strong pedigree filled with consistent, correct Sporting dog movement and proper breed type. Louie took a visit to Canada in 2013 and finished his Canadian Championship with multiple group placements.
