What is a Clumber Spaniel …
The adult male Clumber weighs about 32kg and is about 50cm at the shoulder. The girls weigh less and are shorter.
The coat is a double coat, and the breed sheds twice a year, the heavier shed is in summer.
The dogs have heavy, thick set bone that requires quality puppy nutrition for longer periods than slender legged breeds and also a different type of exercise.
The adults require free running exercise twice a day.
Most Clumbers have a reliable and generous attitude, but this is moulded by how they are raised and treated by their families. They have long memories and dislike drill style training, but love and blossom on small challenges building on past learned skills.
They can bark but are not a noisy breed – in most cases.
You should be able to expect a good 12 years of active life, puppy behaviour will reappear even then!
