Maureen and Tony Taylor bid you a warm welcome to the
our site, the home of what we affectionately call the "Maursett Mob". This has, over the years, included
Clumber Spaniels, English Setters, Basset Hounds, German
Shorthaired and Wirehaired Pointers and
the Bracco Italiano.
of you who know us for reasons other than dog showing often ask
why we use the name "Maursett" - the reason, simply, is
that it is our Kennel Club Affix. We first applied to the Kennel Club for our own affix
many years ago at a time when we first started showing English Setters. We tried to get all sorts of names that would be
appropriate, all of which were rejected - apart from 'Maursett'
- derived from Maureen and Setters much to Tony's great distress!
It was not long
before we were at a show and caught sight of one of
those white gundogs in the distance. "Cumberland
Spaniels" we were told by someone we thought to be
knowledgeable, but we did eventually find out that these
were indeed Clumber Spaniels.
We were well and truly smitten with the breed and they
have, of course, become a major part of our lives (and
yes, that really is Maureen and Tony in the photograph
with our foundation dog and bitch Claude and Sheena).
We hope that you enjoy your visit to our site and
learning about our hobby. Please feel free to
about our fields of interest.
dogs have performed well in both the show ring and working
environments and have been bred for type, health and, above all else,
temperament. All of our Clumber Spaniel breeding stock
have been tested for PDP1 and are certified clear.
would particularly ask you, please, to take a look at our page -

(previously known as Dogs for the Disabled), a UK Registered
Charity which deserves the support of all dog lovers.
