About The Breed - Clumber Spaniel

The Clumber Spaniel is a long, low, substantial dog.  Dogs weigh between 70 and 85 pounds and bitches weigh between 55 and 70 pounds. The Clumber Spaniel is a gentle, loyal and affectionate dog. He possesses an intrinsic desire to please. An intelligent and independent thinker, he displays determination and a strong sense of purpose while at work. The Clumber is primarily a white dog with lemon color or orange color markings. The tail may be docked or left natural, both being of equal value.
The above are excerpts from the AKC Breed Standard. To read the entire document click here.
Clumbers are referred to as the ‘gentleman’s hunting dog’ and thought by some to be slow and laid-back dogs.  Buyer beware.  Clumber puppies and young adults can be very active and do require exercise.  Many will greet you with unparalleled enthusiasm and can easily knock you off your feet.  Some are slow and very easy going; many are not ! They shed.  Don’t kid yourself.  If you have a strong aversion to dog hair, the Clumber is not for you. Remember that they are powerful chewers.  Make sure they have harmless chew objects readily available - other than your furniture and other valuable assets.

Clumbers are intelligent, funny, and loving.  They teach me new things every day.
