Clumber Spaniel Dog Temperament

Among the most low-keyed and easygoing of sporting breeds, the clumber spaniel is nonetheless a hunter at heart, ever ready for a day in the field. At home he tends to be quiet and may even need to be goaded into exercise. The clumber spaniel is suitable for city life, although he will relish walks and outings. He makes a good pet, especially devoted to one person.

Clumber Spaniel Dog Care

The clumber enjoys a daily outing, but his exercise requirements can be met with a long walk on leash or a leisurely hike in the field. The coat needs brushing two to three times weekly, although in dirty areas he may need more frequent bathing in order to keep his coat a gleaming white. Clumbers tend to drool and, at times, snore.
