Clumber Spaniels to walk at Shorne Woods

Group Photo Clumbers in Sherwood

Clumber Spaniel owners from across London and the south east will be taking part in a summer walk in Shorne Woods Brewers Road, Shorne, Gravesend, Kent, DA12 3HX on 2nd July.

The walk, which is open to both owners of Clumbers and those interested in the breed, will start at 10:30am from the visitor centre car park and last for about two hours.

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. It is expected to attract about 20 owners and their dogs.

Members of the public are invited to come and meet the Clumbers. They are the largest of the spaniels and have a gentle, loyal and affectionate temperament making an ideal family friendly pet.
