The Look of a Clumber Spaniel

The hefty Clumber Spaniel has a long, low, rectangular frame covered in a feathered coat that usually comes in white with orange and yellow markings. Its broad, flat-topped head has a heavy, wrinkled brow, a wide muzzle, brown nose, amber eyes and large, wide ears that hang close. Its thick tail, sometimes docked, is normally carried horizontal or high. Overall, the Clumber Spaniel looks big-boned, powerful and sweet.

What They Are Like to Live With

Easygoing and gentle, the Clumber Spaniel is a perfectly pleasant member of the household. It gets along with everyone in the family, including other dogs and cats. Loyal and eager to please, the Clumber loves quality time with the family, but it also has an independent side: It may seem slightly aloof with some people, but in fact the Clumber Spaniel is just displaying its mannerly and noble side.

Clumber Spaniels tend to move slowly around the house. When they’re busy at work, however, they are very focused and determined. Keep an extra towel around, since the Clumber tends to drool. It has also been known to snore on occasion.

Things You Should Know

Clumber Spaniel puppies are a little more vigorous than full-grown Clumbers. A mature Clumber prefers solid walks to jogging or running. In fact, its favorite exercise is a nice game of fetch in the yard. If you can allow the Clumber some time to swim in clean water, by all means do. Without enough exercise, the Clumber Spaniel could easily gain weight.

Clumber Spaniels can live as long as 13 years. Common health issues include cataracts, hip dysplasia, disc problems (due to their low, long frames) and hypothyroidism. Their long, feathered coats need regular brushing and professional grooming. During shedding seasons, extra brushing is required. Check their ears regularly for signs of infection.

Clumber Spaniel History

No one knows for sure when or how they originated, but it is believed that the Clumber Spaniel was developed in early 18th-century France by the Duke of Noailles. Possibly derived from a mix of Basset Hounds, Alpine Spaniels and St. Bernards, the Clumber Spaniel—in spite of its heavy frame—was used for many years as a hunting dog for aristocrats.
