The Clumber Spaniel is a breed of dog, within the spaniel typing, that originates from the United Kingdom. The breed's name is derived from 'Clumber Park' which is located in Nottinghamshire and is where the breed was first developed. The Clumber Spaniel is actually the largest breed of dog within the spaniel typing. The breed was originally developed as a gundog that specializes in hunting in areas of heavy coverage. There are two different theories about the breed heritage. The first theory suggests that the Clumber Spaniel was developed by breeding the now extinct Alpine Spaniel with Basset Hounds and Pyrenean Mountain dogs. The second theory suggests that the Clumber Spaniel was developed by breeding King Charles Spaniels with other gundog breeds - the King Charles Spaniel was originally much larger than it is in modern times. The breed was originally restricted to being bred by nobility, but during World War 1 the Clumber Spaniel's numbers dwindle which lead to kennels taking an interest in preserving the breed. Despite the efforts to increase the breed's numbers, the Clumber Spaniel is still considered a vulnerable breed in the UK - which means that under 300 new Clumber Spaniel are registered each year. The Clumber Spaniel has a large heavy bone structure, a large head, large vine-leaf shaped ears and a freckled muzzle. The breed predominantly has a white, lemon, orange or brown coat colorations and there are normally spots of other common coat colorations around their muzzle and body. The Clumber Spaniel has a dense coat with the top half being short and the bottom half being a lot longer. As a whole the Clumber Spaniel is known to be a gentle, loyal and affectionate breed. They are also known to be a very 'sleepy' breed and spend a lot of time relaxing, eating or sleeping.
