Clumber Spaniel

Clumber Spaniel

INTRODUCTION

The Clumber Spaniel dog breed was originally created to find and retrieve game birds for hunters. Today, there is an effort to re-establish the Clumber Spaniel as an outstanding hunting dog, and many Clumber Spaniels compete in field trials. Last but not least, they make excellent family companions. If you are looking for an intelligent, adaptable and loving best friend, this may be the breed for you! AniMall24 recommends a dog bed to give your medium-sized Clumber Spaniel a good night’s sleep. You should also buy a dog brush and massager for your long haired puppy.

HISTORY

The romantic story of the Clumber’s origin is that the French Duke de Noailles sent his entire kennel of spaniels to the Duke of Newcastle in England to save his precious dogs during the French Revolution, but little evidence has been found to support this story, and a 1788 painting of the Duke of Newcastle – a year before the French Revolution – depicts him with several lemon and white dogs that clearly look like today’s Clumber. And spaniels take their name from the Duke’s estate, Clumber Park, in Nottingham. Be that as it may, the Duke’s gamekeeper, William Mansell, is responsible for shaping the breed as we know it today. The first Clumber Spaniel was imported to North America in 1844 by a British officer, Lieutenant Venables, who was stationed in Nova Scotia, Canada. The first American Kennel Club registration of a Clumber Spaniel, Bustler, was in 1878, but the Clumber Spaniel Club of America was not founded until 1972. The Clumber is a rare breed, ranking 121st out of 155 breeds and varieties recognised by the AKC.
