RELEASE DATE: 04/25/2008
Thursday, April 24, 2008 (Shawnee on Delaware, Pennsylvania) — The Clumber Spaniel Club of America is hosting its 2008 Specialties and International Symposium April 28th thru May 1st at The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort.
Considered to be the oldest and stockiest of the Spaniel breeds, the Clumber Spaniel dates back to the 1700s. While the precise origin of this breed is not known, some say its ancestors include the Alpine spaniel, basset hound, and St. Bernard while others believe all Spaniels originate from a group of dogs that arrived in England from Spain. The Clumber Spaniel is the heaviest of the Spaniels and there are approximately 5000 of them world wide.
The Clumber Spaniel Club of America (CSCA) is the US parent club for this breed. Amongst its responsibilities, the CSCA encourages and promotes quality in the breeding of these dogs. It also has as a mission to do what it can to protect and advance the interests of the breed and to encourage participation… at dog shows, obedience, agility and rally trials, as well as tracking and hunt tests.
The Rescue and Placement Committee of the Clumber Spaniel Club of America ensures the safety and well being of any Clumber Spaniel in need. Whether a true "rescue" from shelters and other endangering situations or a "placement" is called for, the committee offers whatever assistance is needed on an immediate basis.
The dog show is open to the public and free of charge. Although this event is people friendly, the CSCA kindly requests that all spectators refrain from bringing any family pets including dogs. In addition, because the Clumbers require concentration and the full attention of their handler, parents are asked to please supervise their children, and take advantage of this opportunity to remind them of how to act around dogs. That is no touching without asking the dog's handler or owner for permission, not putting fingers in crates, nor running or screaming.
Saturday April 26 and Sunday the 27th, Myra Savant will be giving a seminar on canine reproduction and neonatal care. Vet techs and local breeders are encouraged to attend. The seminar starts at 8:30 on Saturday, the price is $90 for both days, including lunch. All other events listed on this press release are free and open to the public. On Monday, April 28, the All-Breed Agility Trial will be held at 8:00 am. Tuesday, April 29, Fun and Games will be held at 7:30 am, Obedience and Rally Trial at 10:30 am followed by the parades, national sweeps and Breeders' Showcase. Thursday, May 1, Junior Handling will be held at 8:00 am, National Specialties 9:00 am. Finally, on Friday, conformation competition begins at 8:00 am.
The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort is happy to welcome the Clumber Spaniel Club of America. For more information please call: 800.SHAWNEE or visit www.shawneeinn.com.
