The most reliable sources for the origins of this old and very English breed place its roots in the kennels at Clumber Park in Nottinghamshire. As it happens John and Jane Smith-Bodden of Huddlestone Clumber Spaniels have strong family connections to the Clumber Park area, feeding into a special interest in this largest of the land spaniels.
Clumber Spaniels have, for many years been classed as an endangered breed by the Kennel Club, currently averaging only around 200 pups per year across Show and Working Types.
The intriguing history of this breed is only surpassed by the excitement of its potential to be restored as a working gundog and, at the same time, to be a fabulous and characterful companion dog.
