Clumber Spaniel |England|

Clumber Spaniel |England|

By far the stockiest of the spaniel breeds, the Clumber traces back to at least the eighteenth century. A painting from 1788 depicts the Duke of Newcastle with several lemon-and-white dogs that appear to be Clumbers. The Duke bred them at his estate, Clumber Park, hence their name. The dogs were the preserve of the aristocracy due to their excellent noses and quiet temperament, and were not found among the “commoners.” They first arrived in the United States in the late 1800s. Although they were once very popular and make good companions, they are rare today.
