The proof of my thoughts and methods is in the dogs I actually breed, raise, and live with, for the duration of their natural life.
These dogs are my credentials for offering Clumber owners and breeders my thoughts.
Details of just about all my dogs are online at erinveine.com, but what should truly interest you are the deaths and causes of deaths, and, yes, unlike other breeders, I also have this information on open access – http://www.erinveine.com/listdogsdeaths.php
But look at this photo:
PIC OF FLIGHT AT 16
and, how old is this girl in this photo?
She is 16 years old! Yet shows the length and rhythm of stride of a 3 year old Clumber, why? Because she enjoyed good health throughout her life, was kept fit, and has correct conformation and type.
