Breed Health & Conservation Plan (BHCP )
Representatives from the Clumber Spaniel Club and the Working Clumber Spaniel Society met Sunday 15th April at a meeting convened by the Kennel Club to discuss the Breed Health & Conservation Plan that the KC is preparing for Clumber Spaniels. It was a very productive & positive meeting and six priorities were agreed genetic diversity: eyes and head conformation; EIC;
Hips & weight. The BHCP will include action points for breed clubs and the KC
In the light of this meeting, the Breed Health Plan currently in circulation will need to be reviewed, when the views of the members will be taken into account.
Further information will be available once the final document has been received from the KC
In the last breed survey the % of Clumbers with issues was way higher than normal, it is known to be in all sides of the breed. Because of this it is very important for the future health of the breed that people add the information from all their Clumbers they have owned. Even if they lost them years ago. It is important to know if they didn’t have back problems as much as if they did. Please, please support this survey. It is essentially for UK Clumbers but if you are not in the UK you can still take part.
