Meet the Breed

 

If you are thinking of getting a Clumber Spaniel it is always a good idea to meet some adult dogs first – all puppies are adorable, especially Clumbers, but you need to know what they will be like when they grow up.

 

 

 

Clumber Spaniels will be at various ‘Meet the Breed’ events throughout the year with their owners who you can talk to about owning a Clumber.  Events such as Discover Dogs and Pet Shows mainly focus on pet ownership and allow you to get up close to some Clumbers and talk to the owners. At Game Fairs and Country Shows the focus is on the working abilities of the breed.

 

At both types of event the people on the stand will be happy to tell you all the good things about owning a Clumber and will also be honest about some of the not so good points! And we will explain about the health issues that you need to consider before choosing your puppy. Information will be available that you can take away about the breed, and the various activities you can take part in.

This is the list of events that we will be attending this year:

Another place to meet some Clumbers in a more informal setting is by coming on one of our Clumber Walks. We welcome future owners as well as current ones and ‘best friends’ of other breeds can also come along. Click here for more information

And last, but not least, if your main interest is in showing your Clumber then going to a show is the best place to see Clumbers in the ring. The Clumber Spaniel Club holds an Open Show in April and a Championship Show in October. Dates of these and other shows appear on the events section of this site.
