our minds it was clear that Clumbers without good reason are thought
to be inactive, ....especially when they are
from a „working line“. Also because of, we were living
together for nearly a decade with a half Clumber bitch
and more than 30 years experience with English gundogs, when Velvet
came to us.Nevertheless ...... Velvet’s energy, speed and agility, so as the easiness
she is making a standing jump, lets us marvel again and again.
She is an artist with the ball even big hunting dogs nearly have
no chance in a ball game with her. Like most of the Clumbers she
loves collecting things and building nests. She likes to have
her favorite toys around her and mostly she carries two or three
When she storage them she shows certain kinds of rules to place
them. Here the pleasure of the Clumber Spaniels to retrieve reveals.
Also the high intelligence which is attributed to the Clumber
Spaniels, she often is proving. She certainly has an own will
- just a dog with character - but the obstinacy she is told, has
better to be explained as time they claims to optimize and to
complete the order in the best sense –in a kind of "effort-benefit-analysis".
other gundog breeds also the Clumber has the ability to work on
his own and these cognitive abilities are shown with pleasure
daily.Their hereditary factors can’t be hidden on the walks….she
is a flushing dog „par excellence“ and working with
the dummy makes great pleasure to her …. retrieving seems
to run in her blood…and her eagerness to brings started
tasks to an end shows impressively why the the Clumber`s way of
working in GB & Scandinavia is so appreciated. Little Velvet
is a very affectionate, total cuddly young lady, who has always
fascinated friends & acquaintances as well as some passersby
and twists them around her paw. Also those who neeeeever thought
to become a fan of this breed.
