Christopher Loizou started Covey Flush Kennels with his first cocker in 1996. “Wally”, Fallen Wing’s Welsh, a 3 year old male from England.
Over the years, as Christopher began to search for dogs to build up his kennel, he learned that while the breed was beginning to become better known in more areas throughout America, they were still not readily available. So he concentrated on dogs with superior field trial pedigrees in an effort to bring the British legacy of fine gun dogs to the USA while striving to improve the breed.
Covey Flush Kennels is not a large kennel. Christopher didn't want to be the biggest breeder, he wanted to be one of the best. For quite a few years now, the puppies have been sold before they're born. Getting on the waiting list means that a puppy from Covey Flush Kennels is well worth the wait!
Christopher and his wife Rene bred field-bred English Cocker Spaniels for close to 25 years together. Sadly, Christopher died from COVID February 25, 2021. Christopher had such a strong presence and was quite a character. Anyone that met him by phone or in person never forgot him. He became friends with many of the people that bought puppies from him. Christopher is going to be sorely missed.
After a lot of deliberation, Rene decided to extend the opportunity to carry on the Covey Flush legacy to Phil Gray. Phil is an accomplished breeder and trainer in his own right, earning many hunt test titles with his cockers and those he trained for other owners. The Covey Flush dogs will move to Hope Hull, AL in Lowndes County where long standing traditions of top notch plantations and fine dogs still hold true.
For the first time, training will be available in conjunction with the kennel services! Priority for training will be placed on pups purchased from Covey Flush.
