Playful and loving, the Clumber Spaniel fits in well with families and other animals and enjoys lots of activities such as tracking, agility and obedience. They enjoy daily walks, but they are not for those who want to run long distances or an active jogging partner. An intelligent and independent thinker, the Clumber responds best to positive training. Harsh training methods are ineffective with this sensitive breed.

The Clumber is a rather slow worker but works with a very distinctive "rolling" gait that is fully described in the standard; such movement allows the dog to "maintain a steady trot for a day of work in the fields without exhaustion.
