Douglas Johnson of Bloomington, Ind., received his first Clumber Spaniel as a 15th birthday present from his parents, which has led to a lifetime dedication to the sport of purebred dogs. Breeding under the world-famous Clussexx banner, he has produced more than 100 champion Clumber Spaniels, Sussex Spaniels, Welsh Springer Spaniels, English Toy Spaniels and Pekingese. He has a passion for breeding dogs and continues to run a top breeding program today. His dogs have won more than 100 Best in Show awards and 12 national specialties across three breeds.

Mr. Johnson has produced two Westminster Best in Show winners and is the only breeder to have bred Westminster BIS winners in two different breeds: in 1996, the Clumber Spaniel Ch. Clussexx Country Sunrise ('Brady') and in 2009 the Sussex Spaniel Ch. Clussexx Three D Grinchy Glee ('Stump'). Stump, at 10 years old, was the oldest dog to ever win BIS at Westminster.

Mr. Johnson was awarded American Kennel Club's Sporting Breeder of the Year award in 2005. He is a member of the Santa Barbara Kennel Club and the Bloomington (Ind.) Kennel Club, and is a lifetime member of the Clumber Spaniel Club of America.

Johnson judged at the Westminster dog show for the third time in 2014.
