As already described in “Breed history” the breed was very distant to the origin. From the reliable, highly esteemed working dog it became a pure show- and family dog. Such a development seldom is an advantage ...and in case of the Clumber Spaniels it doesn’t agree to the breed.
for the breed came with the foundation of the “Working Clumber Spaniel

If I read today in breed descriptions something of the kind: "it slavers, snores and gasps," it makes me not only angry at the author - who has unfortunately failed to visualize a complete picture of this breed, but also sad that the persons responsible for breeding allowed that these wonderful dogs were narrowed to it.
By the way, the statement a Clumber from a working line is more difficult to train, is not true – au contraire. At last, only the Clumber Spaniel which forms a good team with its attachment figure, is an successful Gundog, what is certainly respected even at breeding.
