Cluminger Spaniel History

The Clumber Spaniel is a member of the spaniel family that originated in Great Britain. This medium-sized, short-haired, wire-haired, or rough-coated gundog was traditionally prized for its bird-hunting abilities, but is now also used as a show-dog. The Clumber Spaniel is a medium to large-sized, fairly long-legged, athletic, well-balanced, rectangular, and muscular-looking, Poitou or Short-Haired Retriever-type gundog. The head is flat and broad with a moderately straight profile. The large, dark, oval-shaped, erect ears are semi-pendulous with the outer third folded forward and pendant. The tail is docked. The Clumber Spaniel is versatile and capable in the field. It excels at flushing out and holding upland game for the gunner, and retrieving downed birds. The Clumber spaniel is often compared to a sporting type of Cocker Spaniel. The coat is medium in length, hard in texture, and of moderate density. The legs, ears, and body are feathered. The feathering is more pronounced on the legs and feet. The hair on the rump and the inner side of the thighs is thicker and longer than that on the other parts. The clumber is most common in black, liver, and lemon.
