Choosing the Best Dog Food for an Overweight Clumber Spaniel

The largest of spaniels, this breed may benefit from a dog food in controlled portions to maintain optimal weight and overall health. Today's Clumber Spaniel generally does not have to hunt much past the family kitchen for a bowl of dog food and can risk becoming overweight without attention to their diet and exercise.

The Clumber Spaniel was developed in damp and frigid climate of Nottinghamshire, England and named after Clumber Park. Only after the 19th century do records emerge of the breed's beginnings as prized gun dogs of the gentry. The Clumber Spaniel is especially revered for its ability to hunt in heavy cover in the rough terrain of northern England. Only nobility were permitted to breed the Clumber Spaniel and during the ravages of WWl the breed nearly became extinct. After the war, King George took it upon himself to resurrect the breed for his hunting grounds of the Sandringham Estate. Loyal and affectionate, if not goaded the Clumber Spaniel can be content to remain sedentary.

Historically the Clumber Spaniel was no doubt left to their own resources to hunt in the fields and barns for sustenance. Given their droopy jowls, the Clumber Spaniel drools profusely, sheds nearly constantly and has a reputation for a very loud snore. This gentle breed may benefit from a firm hand as it tends to have a mind of its own as can be seen by the fact that it nearly always carries a stick or other object in its mouth. In 1878 The American Kennel Club placed the Clumber Spaniel on its breed registry. The Clumber Spaniel is easily dehydrated and if left without shade they can become uncomfortably hot. Today the Clumber spaniel is a beloved pet for families across Europe and the United States and generally does not have to search much past the family kitchen for a full meal. Given that this breed is generally less active than their ancestors, special attention should be paid to food portions so they do not become overweight.
