There are several theories regarding the origin of the Clumber Spaniel. One states that it was developed in France by the French Duc de Noailles. Threatened by revolution, he transferred his dogs to the Duke of Newcastle, his close friend in England. The Duke's estate, Clumber Park, undoubtedly was the source of the breed's name.
Some believe that crosses with the heavy Alpine Spaniel and Basset Hound helped produce this breed. Due to his heavy build, he is slower at his work of upland hunting than his lighter-boned spaniel cousins.
Their expression is pensive and their stature is dignified, accompanied by great enthusiasm for work and play. They are a loyal and affectionate breed. They may be reserved with strangers, but are never hostile or timid.

Grooming- A quick brush once a week will keep the coat pristine. They are not hard to keep groomed, but do need to be trimmed with scissors at least every 2 months. The ear passages must be kept free of hair and should be checked out very regularly to stop an infection setting in.

Exercise- Being a very laid-back breed, they will adapt their exercise requirements to the family. As puppies, exercise and training must be restricted to ensure the correct development of their bones.

Health- For Diet and other general dog health information Health/Nutrition
