The English Springer Spaniel dog breed was developed as a hunting dog for throwing, jumping and playing in the field, but they are also companions.
Athletic and versatile, they are known for participating in agility trials, hunting, tracking, obedience trials, and more, and are great friends to take with you when you go hiking or camping. You would be hard pressed to find a more loving furry family member, but this pup definitely needs room to run.
English Springer Spaniels are smart and eager to please, not to mention enthusiastic. They are happy dogs and seem to have a good sense of humor.
The English Springer Spaniel is a medium-sized sporting dog with a compact body and a docked tail. Its coat is moderately long, with feathers on the legs, ears, chest and chest.
In January 1899, the Spaniel Club of England and the Sporting Spaniel Society held their trials together for the first time. Three years later, in 1902, a combination of the physical standard of the Spaniel Club of England and the standard of the Sporting Spaniel Society led to the English Springer Spaniel being officially recognized by the English Kennel Club.
