The Clumber Spaniel, the largest of the AKC flushing spaniels, is a dignified and laid-back hunting companion of royalty. The friendly Clumber is a funny best buddy and a gentlemanly flatmate for people who don’t mind some shedding and drooling. Clumber Spaniels are strong, heavily-boned, long, and low-built bird dogs with enormous heads. A little female may weigh 55 pounds, while a huge male may weigh 85 pounds. They measure 17 to 20 inches tall. Clumber movement is loose and effortless despite being designed to push through dense cover in the field. White dominates the dense coat, with sporadic lemon or orange patterns. Clumbers are kind and laid-back at home, but these adventurous guys may be persistent when it comes to smell.
Clumbers are intelligent and eager to please, and they learn quickly. Clumbers are amiable dogs, however, they can be a little reserved around strangers. They only bark when they have something to say, so they don’t make very good watchdogs. They provide reliable playmates for kids and enjoy swimming and fetching.
