The Road to Champion Clumber Spaniels
We began our involvement with Clumber Spaniels 20+ years ago where we had the opportunity to learn from several established breeders. It was the breeder of the Cearig kennel prefix (deceased), sharing her extends years of experience breeding Clumber Spaniels who had the most influence on us. We have continued the Cearig’s line as a Clumber Spaniel breeder who consistently demonstrates a remarkable depth of quality and performance for generation after generation. As a Clumber Spaniel breeder our breeding program is therefore committed to preserving these bloodlines.
Shelley has participated in many educational opportunities offered by the American Kennel Club on topics such as breeding for success, health and wellness of the Clumber Spaniel, and proper canine structure and AKC canine breed standards. As an AKC judge she understands the importance of form following function according to the AKC written breed standard. She has received the AKC’s Breeder Education Certificate and has been recognized by both the Clumber Spaniel Club of America and the Durham Kennel Club for her contributions to the canine community.
We work closely with the Department of Theriogenology, at the North Carolina State University for our Clumber Spaniel breeding needs. We’ve educated ourselves on various Clumber Spaniel breeder practices and have incorporated those we find appropriate into our program. As the art of breeding the purebred dog moves forward, we utilize lessons learned, new advances, and the expertise of specialist to improve our chances for producing healthy Clumber Spaniels and to help ensure the future for this wonderful breed.
When transforming our Clumber Spaniel puppies into healthy adult dogs the behaviors and temperament needed is complex. Thus, in addition to our careful attention to genetic selection and health testing, we provide appropriate social and behavior development for our Clumber Spaniel puppies. All our Clumber Spaniel puppies receive in-home, hands-on care with early socialization and temperament & performance testing at 7 weeks. All our litters are AKC registered and the Clumber Spaniel puppies are sold on contract.
