Owners of a rare breed of dog are coming together to walk their furry friends in Gravesend.

Clumber spaniel owners from across London and the south east will be taking part in a summer walk in Shorne Woods, on July 2.

The walk, which is open to both owners of Clumbers and those interested in the breed, will start at 10.30am from the visitor centre car park and last for about two hours.

Dog owner, Rodney Weston, said: “The breed is rare, and was originally bred in Clumber Park in Nottinghamshire. Clumber spaniels are few and far between with less than two hundred puppies born each year.

“These walks, held at country parks throughout the year are often the only opportunity many owners and their dogs get to meet and walk together. This event is expected to attract about 20 owners and their dogs.”

Further information is available on the Walking with Clumbers UK Facebook page or by calling Barbara Weston on 01530 456071.
