Canadian Amateur High Point Dog

Talbot Radcliff Top Amateur Handled Dog


Talbot Radcliffe is the one person who had the most influence on the modern day English Springer Spaniel. His Saighton line can be found in the bloodlines of most North American Field bread Spaniels. In 1999 Mr. Radcliffe’s Estate donated this trophy in his memory to the Canadian National. This tiny goblet is of solid silver and was made from the melting down all of Talbot Radcliffe’s trophies, the silver was extracted and this goblet was given to the Canadian National Spaniel Open All Age Field Trial. This prestigious trophy is to be presented to the top Amateur handler at the National.


Presented to the best amateur handled dog at the Canadian National.
