Welcome to the Wonderful World of Clumbers!
We, at Helices Clumber Spaniels, are dedicated to producing healthy puppies with wonderful temperaments with a particular interest in hunting. Although typically described as being "reserved" with strangers, we do our best to socialize our puppies by taking them into stores, where ever possible, in a baby carrying "pouch". Puppies are handled from the day they are born until they are a month of age for daily weighings. Once the puppies are weaned we join them in the puppy room for play and feeding (which ever comes first). All of our puppies and adults are registered with the AKC. We are also members of the Clumber Spaniel Club of America, and thus adhere to the club's code of ethics.
While choosing a canine companion, we wanted a breed who would be very excited when company arrived at our home, and calm down once they had become accustomed to the presence of our guests. We also wanted a breed who would be friendly towards everyone he or she met. Last but not least, we wanted our canine family members to enjoy kissing and cuddling .... especially the latter, on those cold winter nights
Clumbers can be very stubborn and can be determined to get their way in the world! As with a human child, Clumber parents must be equally determined to get their way. However, it is important to be firm but NOT abusive towards your Clumber!! No individual, canine or human, will respond well to abusive treatment. We, as breeders, are available to consult with you if you should encounter any unwanted behaviors, or have any concerns, about your Clumber family member!
