English Springer Spaniel

Originally born in the same litters as Cocker Spaniels, the larger English Springer Spaniel was recognised as a distinct breed in 1902. An enthusiastic hunting companion used to flush game, the English Springer Spaniel is a cheerful, affectionate and sociable family dog. The English Springer requires frequent brushing and trimmings. An active breed, he also requires daily exercise.
Living Considerations
  • Not hypoallergenic
  • Good with children
  • Suitable for apartment living if adequately exercised
