Clumber Spaniels are stoical, big-hearted, highly intelligent dogs with a determination that enhances their natural abilities. Silent workers that take advantage of their excellent sense, they are also steady and assured companions exuding kindness and dignity.While one theory posits that they are the result of a cross between a Saint-Bernard and a spaniel, their origins generally remain a mystery. These well balanced, heavy-boned dogs wear a pensive expression. They are active animals embodying great strength.
Due to their long body and short legs, Clumber Spaniels have a rolling gait, moving forward in a straight line at front and back without effort.
