Overview
This breed was developed in England in the middle of the 14th century and is the heaviest of the Spaniels. They were favored by British monarchs for their solemn and majestic demeanor. The Clumber Spaniel is the keenest of hunters, and excels at retrieving pheasant and partridge. They are great water dogs, have a heightened sense of smell, and display remarkable stamina and endurance.
Character
The Clumber Spaniel is handsome and useful; a true aristocrat of long descent. They are considered to be a rare breed that is typically difficult to obtain. This slow moving and stocky breed are sedate, affectionate, and make an excellent companion.
Temperament
Of the hunting breeds, the Clumber Spaniel is the most low-key and easy-going. They are gentle, sweet, and highly intelligent. A pleasant and well-behaved dog, they get along with other dogs, cats, and other household animals they are raised with. They typically become attached to one specific person in their family. Clumber Spaniels are generally good with children. They do not easily befriend strangers, but are never timid or aggressive. This breed greatly enjoys human companionship and attention.
Care
Clumber Spaniels need daily grooming with a comb and brush. Professional trimming of the coat is required. Their eyes and ears need to be cleaned on a consistent basis. This breed is prone to hip dysplasia, juvenile lameness, dry eyes, and cataracts. It is important to not over feed them as they gain weight easily. They are also prone to flea and skin allergies. Due to their dense coats, the Clumber Spaniel must be protected from becoming over heated.
Coat
The body coat of the Clumber Spaniel is straight, flat, dense, and weather resistant. It is soft, not harsh in texture. The ears, legs, and stomach are slightly feathered with straight hair. They have a thick ruff of hair at the neck. The Clumber Spaniel is a double coat breed. The outer coat consists of long guard hairs, while the undercoat is thick and soft. The coat color is predominantly white with either orange or lemon markings. This breed is a heavy shedder.
Training
This breed loves to please their master and has an excellent memory. As a result, training Clumber Spaniels are not typically difficult. They are quiet and unassuming and will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed training methods. They learn best with a calm trainer who provides them with positive reinforcement, praise, love, fairness, and consistency. Early socialization and basic obedience is recommended.
Activity
Clumber Spaniels are equally suited for apartment or residential dwellings. They require daily exercise such as brisk walks, being bicycling companions, chasing a ball, or swimming. Failure to provide sufficient exercise will cause this breed to become overweight, have muscle atrophy, and shorten their life span.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Clumber Spaniel puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

The Clumber Spaniel is a calm and easy going dog. They can be good therapy dogs, but like all dogs, they need to be specially trained before being certified.
