One of the original nine breeds registered by the AKC, the Clumber Spaniel's long and low build is particularly unique among spaniels. Although not as speedy as other sporting dogs, the Clumber will work all day, trotting along in his signature slow, rolling gait. He may appear dignified and pensive, but he possesses great enthusiasm for both work and play. The breed possesses a beautiful white coat and may have lemon or orange-colored markings
CLUMBER SPANIELS Known as the ‘Aristocrat of Spaniels’, the Clumber was originally bred by the Duke of Newcastle to work on his Clumber Park estate which gave the breed its name. They became very popular in the Dukeries and later King George V kept Clumbers at Sandringham where he bred many working and show champions, the best remembered being Sandringham Spark. Now they are on the Vulnerable Breed List because less than 250 puppies are born each year.
