Clumber Spaniel

The Clumber Spaniel is thought to have originated in France in the 18th century and had ancestors including the Alpine Spaniel and the Basset Hound. He was an excellent hunter and did it so quietly that he could get very close to his prey. His name changed when a big French kennel moved Clumber Park (owned by the Duke of Newcastle) at the beginning of the French Revolution to try and save the dogs.
This dog can work all day and has a rolling, slow gait. He’s very enthusiastic about play and work and has a white coat with either orange or lemon markings. He fits in well with people and other animals because he loves to play. He loves long walks but not jogging. He does shed hair and drools and slobbers more than most dogs. He’s responsive to training and he stands at 17 – 20 inches tall.
