Clumber Spaniel owners enjoy walk and talk in Hinchingbrooke Country Park

P1000032

Clumber Spaniel owners from across the district took part in a spring walk in Hinchingbrooke Park Huntingdon on 19th March. The walk, which was open to both owners of Clumbers and those interested in the breed was attended by 18 Clumbers, plus seven other breeds and 34 people who enjoyed the sunshine and watching their dogs mix and swim together.

The Clumber spaniel is a rare native breed of dog, originally bred at Clumber Park in Nottinghamshire. Because it is so rare, with less than two hundred puppies born a year, these walks held at country parks across the country offer the only opportunity many owners and their dogs get to meet and walk with other Clumbers.
