Clumber Spaniel

The Clumber Spaniel was evolved by the Duke of Newcastle at his Nottingham seat, Clumber, during the latter part of the 18th century, and enjoyed considerable popularity among sportsmen who required a gundog to work in dense undergrowth at a more leisurely, methodical and slower pace than other spaniels.


A dignified, long, low and heavily boned, active dog with a very thoughtful expression the Clumber is stoical, great hearted and highly intelligent with a determined attitude but good with all age groups. It should give the appearance of great power yet be sedate in all movements and never clumsy. The gait of the Clumber has a characteristic rolling motion.


In nature the Clumber is steady, reliable, kind and dignified.


The most distinctive feature of the breed apart from the massive build, is the lemon markings on the sparkling white dense and silky coat.
