A quick look at the working Clumber Spaniel…

Back before I got Puck, I had a thing for the less popular sporting breeds – Vizlas, Griffons, French Spaniels, etc. I also liked Clumber Spaniels.

From what I’ve been told, Clumbers used to be popular in the UK. Today, there numbers are extremely low – according to The Working Clumber Spaniel Society, there are just 134 registered Clumber Spaniels in the UK today.

There are a few of them in the North America, too, and The Clumber Spaniel Club of America does a lot of work to support the breed over here.

  1. Gregg,
    Oddly enough, the Clumber just came up in conversation the other day. When I was in my early 20’s I had a doctor who was an avid birdhunter. He had a Clumber/Springer Mix that was a firecracker and kept close. SOME NOSE this dog had….Lets call it a SPRUMBER 😉

    I was like you when i was younger and fancied the less popular breeds of the day. Aren’t you glad you found Pointers instead? I am.

    Another great artical!

  2. That’s funny, and probably the best way to get a Clumber who can really hunt.

    Once you see a good pointer, it’s hard to live with other breeds. I do like Springers, though. The good ones have that same drive and athleticism.

    Thanks for the comment.
