English Springer Spaniel Stats/Facts:
The English Springer Spaniel is a medium-sized sporting dog with a neat, compact body and a docked tail. They are one of the largest of the spaniels. Their coat is moderately long and glossy with feathering on their legs, ears, chest and brisket. Handsome and robust, they excel in the field by flushing out game. English Springer Spaniels make an excellent family companion as well as a good working dog. They must have human companionship and the freedom to exercise regularly.
Fanciers claim the coat is self-cleaning, but frequent and thorough brushing is needed to keep it lying close and free of dead hair. Some hand trimming is also required on head, throat and around feet to neaten the outline. Like all breeds with long, close-lying ears, the Springer's should be checked regularly. They are susceptible to injury, can pick up foreign bodies easily, and if not kept clean can become the focus of stubborn infections. An able field dog, the Springer enjoys life as a family pet and companion. This breed is eager to please, willing to obey and quick to learn.
