Champion Prince Tom III UD
The first American Cocker to win a National, Prince Tom III U.D. :
In 1956,Cocker National was again held in New Jersey, seemingly out from nowhere, came a smallish owner-handled buff American Cocker, Prince Tom III U.D., to win the championship for his owner, Tom Clute. He became the first American Cocker to win a National, the first dog with an obedience title and the first handled by an amateur – definitely a surprise for the die-hard triallers of that era! Another American Cocker copped the national in 1957, the black dog, Field Ch. Berol Lodge Glen Garry, owned by Mr. berol and handled by Blair Crowell.
