Fresh Food for Clumber Spaniels
Mellow, sweet, and loyal: this is the Clumber spaniel in a nutshell. And don’t let their sad, downturned eyes deceive you—when well cared for, these are happy dogs. The heaviest of the spaniels, the Clumber’s long, heavy body was developed with heavy brush and mud in mind; they worked flushing out and retrieving birds from thick underbrush.
As with all spaniels, the Clumber is a loving family dog who adores children and other dogs, but can be a bit shy with strangers. They’re also typical hunting dogs: highly intelligent with a stubborn streak that makes consistent training a must. Most important: a bored Clumber is a destructive Clumber, so make sure they get plenty of mental and physical exercise.
What’s the best dog food for Clumber spaniels?
A diet of fresh dog food for your Clumber is the best way to support their health and happiness—along with daily exercise, regular vet care, and a playful, loving family.
Why fresh is best for your Clumber Spaniels

Clumber spaniels are prone to joint issues. Maintaining a lean body condition can help. And fresh food from The Farmer’s Dog contains Omega-3 fatty acids, proven to reduce inflammation and improve arthritis.

Rancid fats don’t deliver the intended health benefits, and in fact can contribute to inflammation. Fresh food delivers these powerful nutrients intact to your Clumber.
Maintain a healthy weight
It’s critically important to avoid overfeeding any dog, big or small. Being even a little overweight can increase your Clumber spaniel's odds of developing a host of diseases like arthritis, diabetes, and even cancer. A fresh-food plan, tailored to your dog’s needs, and delivered in pre-portioned packs, makes weight maintenance easy.
Know what’s in the bowl
For Clumber spaniels with dry and itchy skin, sensitive stomachs, or other signs of food allergies and sensitivities, it’s important to know exactly what you’re feeding—something that can be impossible with kibble, which often contains ingredients not listed on the bag. Allergies and intolerances to food are all too common and many dog owners notice symptoms clear up when they switch to fresh food.
Provide nutrients that can reduce the odds of cancer
There’s no sure way to eliminate the risk of cancer, but there are things you can do to give your Clumber spaniel the best chance at more healthy years: Keep them lean, avoid heavily processed foods that may contain preservatives and carcinogens, and feed them a fresh diet that can help reduce inflammation.
