The Clumber Spaniel has a life expectancy of around 10 years, which is relatively short compared to many other breeds. There are a number of health problems and disorders that are linked to this breed, and this includes cataracts, HD, entropion, ectroption, and spinal problems. Both parents of the Clumber Spaniel should have OFA and CERF certificates.
Although he is a gentle, innocent, and sweet natured dog, the Clumber Spaniel does tend to have a bit of mischievousness about him, which can be both frustrating yet endearing.
Extremely active as puppies, Clumber Spaniels grow very fast and slow down considerably when mature.
