Rita Nelson first started in Poodles in 1961, ultimately establishing the kennel name of Chaud Chien based on two British kennels; Tranchant and Lochranza.  Over 15 years, Rita made several trips to the U.K., coveting the Curly Coated Retriever breed.  By 1990, Rita had developed a friendship with Haydn and Gladys Phillips of Wales, Gladrags, named the top Curly Coated Retriever kennel in the U.K. now for the last 15 years.  Rita imported an entire breeding program and allied with the Phillips to become Gladrags USA.  Rita’s first 8 litters produced 35 show champions, 5 international, 2 field titles, 3 obedience titles and 1 Deutch/CACIB title.   

After several years of owning and showing Gladrags Curlys, it is a great honor and privilege to announce that we have been chosen by Rita Nelson, Haydn and Gladys Phillips to be partners with Rita in Gladrags USA.
