PURINA: Your Pet, Our Passion

Welsh Springer Spaniel

A hardworking, versatile hunter, the Welsh Springer Spaniel is a solid, muscular dog with a strong nose and webbed feet. He is gentle, loyal and sensitive, making him an excellent companion. Nicknamed the “Velcro dog,” the Welsh Springer Spaniel is happiest when close to his family. A jolly, athletic breed with great stamina, he should be vigorously exercised daily, and his flat, feathered coat needs to be brushed weekly.
Living Considerations
  • Good with children
  • Not hypoallergenic
