CLUMBER SPANIEL

History

The Clumber Spaniel is said to be developed in the late 16th century and received its name during the French Revolution, 1789. History says that the Duke of Noailles of France gave his kennel of spaniels to the Duke of Newcastle for sanctuary in Nottinghamshire and thus it got its name from the Duke’s residence, Clumber Park.

Interesting Facts

  1. They ranked 121st out of 155 breeds that were recognized by the AKC.
  2. They were restricted to the noble class, but during World War, their production was stopped and later on was again started by George V.

Temperament and Personality

Being a lazy dog, they love to spend their time by eating, relaxing and sleeping on their couch. They are even gentle, calm, and affectionate and bond well with all the members of the family and may even have their personal favorite. It also tends to chew toys and can end up breaking cupboards or destroying other substances when bored. Their hunting instinct can hurt pet birds and other small animals, but their calm behavior makes them suitable for first-time owners.

Exercise

The clumber spaniel puppies are very active, but as they grow up, they reduce a lot of energy, looking drowsy always. An occasional visit to water parks will be a good option as they are excellent swimmers and take them for regular walks or game facilities to maintain its health and mental stimulation.

Grooming

As they are frequent shedder, they require daily brushing and bathe them with dog shampoo when necessary. They tend to develop drool or slobber, so clean its mouth on a regular basis. Trim their nails and overgrown hair, clean its teeth and check its ears weekly.

Health Problems

Some of the health issues which the breed can have are hip dysplasia, cataracts, panosteitis, skin allergies, entropion, ear infection, and hypothyroidism.

Training

Since they have a sharp memory, they are easy to train and can do anything to please its master. They require the firm, calm and assertive trainer to control them well and the stubbornness of the spaniel must be changed into obedient behavior.

Feeding

The dog loves to eat all the time, but overeating can cause bloating, so proper care should be taken regarding their diet. Serve them 2 to 2.5 cups of high-quality dry dog food every day split into at least two meals.
