The Clumber Spaniel is first and foremost a gun dog, they may look heavy and stubby, but are very good hunters. Sometimes known as the "Gentleman's Gun Dog", he is the largest of all spaniels. He does have a tendency to be lazy if left alone, but will always be ready to join a walk or go hunting. Named for the Clumber Estate of the Duke of Newcastle he is believed to have originated with the Duc de Noailles who moved his kennel to England for sanctuary during the French Revolution.
Said to have come from the Basset Hound or early Alpine Spaniel blood.
