A dog of contradictions... a gundog capable of a good days work, yet loves the lazy life! Happy family member, willing to please and never aggressive

Clumber Spaniel Character

A completely non-aggressive breed and one who loves to please. The Clumber will bond closely with his family, but can be aloof to strangers. Can be lazy! Should pose no problem with other pets, is very easy to train and despite the lazy tendency is still capable as a working gundog, albeit a little slower than other Spaniels. The Breed Standard describes them as "Stoical, great-hearted, highly intelligent with a determined attitude enhancing his natural ability. A silent worker with an excellent nose."

Clumber Spaniel Size

The Breed Standard stipulates a dog's weight as 36kg, bitches 29.5kg.

Clumber Spaniel Health

Typical to Spaniels, be careful of eye and ear infections. Hip Dysplasia is also known in the breed.

Clumber Spaniel Special Care

More 'doggy odour' than the average breed and can moult quite heavily.
