Clumber Spaniel

The Clumber Spaniel was developed by the Dukes of Newcastle and their gamekeepers. The breed takes its modern name from the Duke of Newcastle's Nottingham country estate of Clumber Park, which is now a National Trust property and lies in the north of the famous Sherwood Forest.

The Clumber was developed to support the Dukes and gamekeepers in hunting this and nearby estates that were usually covered in heavy timber and very heavy undergrowth littered with fallen branches and limbs. The white coat ensured it could be seen in most scrub and its build ensured it could penetrate into the depths of that scrub and flush game hiding there or even retrieve shot game.
