Clumber Spaniel

 

Clumber Spaniels are the stockiest spaniel of the group. These somewhat rare dogs are big both in body and in personality. They combine hound-like tracking abilities with spaniel-like hunting skills, making Clumbers a valued part of any hunting expedition lucky enough to have one along. Some Clumber Spaniels also work as therapy dogs.

Originally from England, this large-sized and medium-energy breed can grow to between 55-85 pounds and lives an average of 10-12 years. The breed is recognized by the American Kennel Club and classified as a member of the Sporting group.

BEHAVIOR & TRAINING

WHAT IS A CLUMBER SPANIEL'S PERSONALITY LIKE?

They might look doe-eyed and innocent, but Clumber Spaniels can be playful and mischievous. You'll want to be sure your pup is a trustworthy adult before leaving her in the house unsupervised.

When you are home, Clumber Spaniels are calm, cuddly, intelligent, and devoted. They love to be part of a family and can play well with children if they've been properly socialized. A Clumber pup might be too rowdy for small children, though; they'll do better together if you supervise them. They're good with other dogs, but they can be shy around strangers.

WHAT IS CLUMBER SPANIEL BEHAVIOR LIKE?

The Clumber Spaniel needs space to stretch her legs. These dogs are slow and not well suited to rigorous exercise though — think hikes, not sprints.

They're also not the politest of housedogs — they tend to snore and drool, so don't forget the wet wipes when you visit a house with one.

HOW EASY IS IT TO TRAIN A CLUMBER SPANIEL?

Clumber Spaniels respond well to training, though the adolescent males can be especially mischievous counter-surfers. Start early and be patient and consistent with your furry friend. It's especially important to use positive-based techniques as this dog can be a submissive urinator.

Though they'll never be favorites for speed trials, many Clumber Spaniels compete successfully in agility, freestyle, tracking, hunt tests, and obedience.

CARE & HEALTH

HOW MUCH DO CLUMBER SPANIELS SHED AND WHAT ARE THEIR GROOMING NEEDS?

Clumber Spaniels' thick single coats are short, soft, and fluffy.

Your Clumber will need regular grooming, especially in and around his feet and ears. Plan to brush yours a few times a week to keep matting at bay. They're somewhat heavy shedders.

WHAT HEALTH PROBLEMS DO CLUMBER SPANIELS HAVE?

Clumber Spaniels can be prone to hip dysplasia; some develop eye problems.
