Cuvana Irish Water Spaniels bred for temperament, work & show


Meet Anoushka born 9 June 2015
(Nyllaup Star Anise at Cuvana)


Meet Malachi born 15 March 2015 (Diddymowg Turquoise Storm at Cuvana)


Introducing Czar who was born on 9th April 2012.
He is Caz's nephew and Zac's grandson so we are hoping he will be following in their footsteps and have high hopes for him.
Unfortunately due to an adverse reaction to antibiotics we lost Czar in February 2015



 Zac sired 4 litters and from his first litter I kept a little girl who I called Caz.
Caz is following in her Dad's footsteps and has won 1st at every Cruft she has been entered in and won the RCC at LKA in 2011. She has been placed 1st and 2nd in various working tests and has been picking up on shoots since she was 2 years old.  She is a very happy little girl with a wonderful temperament and we love her too bits.
Judy kept a boy from his last litter which she called Quill - Goldenacre Sea Rider at Cuvana. 
He has done very well in both the showing and working world and in 2015 was awarded a CC at Windsor.

Zac being sent for a blind retrieve in the Open Working Test at Chillington Hall, July 2008.  Successfully retrieved and gained top marks.  Days like this makes all the hard work and training put in worthwhile.

In partnership with his daughter Judy, Arnie Hempstead bred Irish Water Spaniels.  He purchased an IWS for Judyapproximately 35 years ago and 17 years ago they bought in a bitch puppy - Cuboglach Heath Rustic(Flo) - who sadly passed away aged 13 years old in June 2010.

Cuboglach Heath Rustic sadly no longer with us

Judy successfully showed and worked 'Flo' and also bred two litters from her.  From her first litter she kept a dog (Reg) who has done very well in the showing world.  From her second litter, born January 2005 Judy kept a bitch (Brise) and my partner Sue and I kept a dog (Zac).
