The Cocker Spaniel Club is the Parent Club of the breed and was founded in 1902 with a membership of 35. Today, there are over 1500 members (both home & overseas). The Club holds an annual Championship Show at Malvern in July as well as the now well- established Puppy Match held in January (for those puppies who have won a Puppy Class at Championship Shows throughout the year). From 2004, the Match will also include a Veteran competition (for those Cockers who have won a Veteran class at a Championship Show). There is in addition an annual points competition to find Cocker Of The Year and Cocker Puppy Of The Year, much sought after titles. Educational seminars are also organised from time to time. The Club co-ordinates a Rescue Scheme for those Cockers needing to be rehomed and also monitors hereditary problems in the breed, with an an eye-testing session held at each Championship Show and the publication of an annual Welfare Report (detailing dogs that have been eye-tested and/or hipscored and listing those dogs that have been found to be affected with PRA or have produced a confirmed case of FN) All members receive a copy of the annual Year Book, a highly collectible publication detailing the Club's activities for the past year together with photos of members' Cockers. The Club also has a flourishing Field Trial Section which organises two annual Field Trial events.
