Breed enthusiast Barbara Brown introduces the wonderfully named Oberon.

He's a Clumber Spaniel, which is the largest English spaniel, and is a vulnerable breed, hailing from Clumber Park in Nottinghamshire. 

Oberon works as a gundog, specialising in heavy cover - using his superior nose to clear ground after a shoot. Barbara talks to Dogs with Jobs presenter Kate Fairweather about his talent, and discusses the breed, which is strongly associated with the Royal Family - King George V kept a pack of them, as did Prince Albert and King Edward VII.

Recorded at the Hampshire Country Sports Day 2023.
