Clumber Spaniel  

 

The Clumber Spaniel has a deliberate and slow-paced hunting style that contrasts with the animated, high speed approach of other flushing spaniels. This is not to say they are less effective hunters, for they will amble all day in their quietly enthusiastic way, penetrating the thickest of cover to flush quarry for waiting hunters. It is generally agreed upon that they originated in France in the 18th century and their ancestors include the Bassett Hound and Alpine Spaniel. Their name comes from the Duke of Newcastle’s Clumber Park, which was moved at the beginning of the French Revolution in an effort to save its dogs. The Clumber Spaniel is a jolly, lovable, and intelligent breed that makes a charming family pet and enjoys the company of other animals. They should have daily walks to keep them happy and fit but do not need intense exercise. Their beautiful white coats can have lemon or orange colored marking and require minimal grooming but do shed year round. They tend to drool more than other breeds.
