History [ edit ]

The Clumber Spaniel was a French breed that was shipped to the duke of Newcastle, England, by one of the dukes of Noailles, because he feared for his dogs´ life due to threat of the French Revolution (1789). But the name by which we identify it came from the Clumber Park in Nottinghamshire. It was in fact in Great Britain that this breed was developed and where it acquired the appearance that we known it by today. Therefore, it is generally accepted that the Clumber Spaniel is a English and not French breed.

Although a spaniel, the Clumber as very little resemblance to the all the other spaniels – English, German, Field, etc... In fact, it is believed that they are not related what so ever. The Clumber is thought to have Basset Hounds and St. Bernards has ancestors.

The Clumber is a Gundog that was used in tracking and game retrieving. He was so good at this that his lack of speed was of no great matter for the owners.
