The Clumber is a well balanced, heavily boned but active dog with a thoughtful expression. The breed's overall appearance denotes strength and its coat is lemon/ white or orange/white - the more white the better. The Clumber has no height standard but its weight should be between 15.5 and 29kg.


The Clumber Spaniel is named after the Duke of Newcastle's Nottingham country estate, Clumber Park, and the breed was once owned by British royalty; firstly by Prince Albert, consort of Queen Victoria, then his son King Edward VII who bred them in his Sandringham kennels. Edward's son, King George V, a sportsman and hunter continued the Clumber tradition.


The Clumber Spaniel is not overly active, but makes for a friendly, sociable and calm companion. It is also gentle, loyal and affectionate, but dignified and may be aloof with strangers.


Clumber Spaniels have a generally low maintenance, thick, soft weather-resistant coat. To keep the coat free from shedding, hair brushing and combing should be done on a regular basis.

The breed's eyes and ears should be regularly checked. Trimming the feet, the feathering under the ear hole, from the wrist to the foot on the front legs and from the hock to foot on the hind legs every two months should be sufficient.
