  • Care

    Clumber Spaniels are above-average shedders, so you should brush them a couple of times per week. You can bathe them on an as-needed basis, but the folds on their heads should be cleaned with a damp cloth regularly. And any skin folds should be kept dry to avoid yeast infections. Clumbers can be prone to ear infections. So, it's important to check their ears routinely and clean them often. As with all dogs, Clumber Spaniels' nails need frequent trims to prevent pain or issues caused by overgrown nails. In addition to occasional professional dental cleanings, you should establish an at-home dental care routine that includes regular teeth-brushing and dental treats or toys.

    Clumber Spaniels need a high-quality diet that's appropriate for their life stage (e.g., puppy, adult, senior)—consider foods formulated specifically for large-breed dogs.
