The Clumber spaniel is a long, rectangular in shape and with massive bone.

It moves with no trouble, tending to roll somewhat because of its broad body and short legs. The look is soft.

The clumber makes a good pet, particularly devoted to one person.
Little is really known about the breed’s origins, but experts say that Duc de Noailles of France delivered his loved spaniels to his English counterpart to save them from the horrors of the French Revolution. Then the dogs were sent to the Duke’s Clumber Park estate, from where they acquired their breed name. Interest in the breed continued through the 19th century. They also became popular with the British aristocracy. Royal fans of the breed included The Prince Albert and Edward VII.
