The Clumber Spaniel Club was founded in 1904 with a membership of forty enthusiasts. It was, however, not officially recognised by the Kennel Club until the 1920 Stud Book listed the Club in its pages. The Club has members from across the UK and around the world.
Clumbers have been popular as show dogs since the advent of dog shows and in 1991, Ralph Dunne’s Sh Ch Raycroft Socialite achieved the highest accolade taking the title Crufts Supreme Champion.
The Clumber Spaniel has been prized as a working dog for over 200 years and although its popularity dropped during the middle of the last century, it is now making a steady comeback in the shooting field.
Some Clumbers have also shown their versatility in other newer disciplines such as agility, tracking and heelwork to music, while others as Pat Dogs have enriched the lives of those they visit in hospitals and retirement homes.
Internationally, the Clumber Spaniel Club maintains its links with its sister Clubs around the world and participates at the International Breed Seminars held every few years.
The Club holds a number of events each year including two shows, working events and training days. All members are welcome at our events which will be advertised on our website and our Facebook page so do check in regularly for latest updates.
The club also supports the KC Good Citizen Dog scheme.
New Members are always welcome, please visit our membership page for more information.
