Eastern Counties Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Society is a Regional Society in
the United Kingdom associated with Cavalier owners in East Anglia and
neighbouring Counties of England . We applied to the Kennel Club for
registration of the Society in 1974 and held our first organized event in
Newmarket on 18th July 1976. Our first Limited Show was judged by Mrs Susan
Burgess in January 1977 with Lady Forwood judging our first Open Show in June
of the same year.
We came of
age in June 1980 with our first Breed Championship Show which has now become an
annual event although it is now held in April. We have approximately 275
members and membership is open to anyone who has an interest in Cavaliers not
just those who show dogs. Our activities centre around the three Breed Shows we
put on each year in January, April and October. We also very occassionally run
Social events. From time to time we arrange Health clinics and seminars both on
Judging and Grooming as well as talks on Breeding and associated doggie issues.

Joint CKCS Clubs Championship Show organised by ECCKCSS
We run our
own Cavalier Rescue and Welfare which uses volunteers to collect and place dogs
which need a new home, be it matrimonial difficulties, the unfortunate death of
owners or anyone who cannot continue to look after their own dog. We also
assist our members by advertising their puppies for sale on our Puppy register.
In 2013 we
had the privilege of organising the Joint Cavalier Clubs Championship Show in
