Clumber Spaniel Back Disease (IVDD) Survey

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.

The World Of Clumbers International Book

Some of you will have seen this international book on Clumbers covering the years 2000-15 is now underway. Ian Layfield and James Taylor are splitting the UK work.
The first priority is the Champions gallery. Ian has completed the list of UK Clumbers made-up between 2000-15. They will all be named in the book but there is also the opportunity for them to appear with a photo and 3 generation pedigree, free of charge. Hopefully everyone can be included but the publishers may need to ballot if space becomes an issue. I will be contacting the relevant people over the coming days, but you can also start contacting James if your dog(s) became a champion in those years.

***What we don’t have is a list of Clumbers bred in the UK who became Champions overseas between 2000 and 2015, so please get in touch if you know such dogs.***

There is also the opportunity to advertise current kennel successes/ details. Please see the flyer below. James & Ian are attempting to get prices in £sterling but the attached flyer shows the pricing in Euros. James via Facebook or if you would like his email address please drop an email through to and we will be happy to provide it.
