About Whidbey Kennel Clumber Spaniels


I began showing and breeding Newfoundlands in the early 1960s. Once my family moved to Monroe in late 90s, my 20 year old dream of owning a Clumber became a reality. I co-owned this Clumber, Ch. Cameo’s Oreck XL CW, with Melissa Wiltse, then a junior handler and dog trainer extraordinaire. Once we had Oreck and fell totally in love with Clumbers, there were 3 Clumber girls added to the homes of Melissa and me. At this point the Newfoundland breeding program was phased out and I began co-breeding with Melissa. Melissa now has her own breeding program under the Btrue prefix but we still work together occasionally. Clumbers now rule my world!
