Use of English Springer Spaniels: The English Springer Spaniel is an intelligent and highly energetic dog breed that enjoys hunting on land as well as traipsing through water and brush.
History of English Springer Spaniels: The English Springer Spaniel dog breed is the first of English hunting spaniels. Derived from the same breed as the Cocker Spaniel when first bred in England during the Renaissance, these dogs were the bigger of the litter and used in hunting to “spring” on game. The breed became popular in the United States in the 18th century, and several other breeds developed from it.
Conformation: The English Springer Spaniel is a medium-sized dog with a compact body. It has a long, flat or wavy outercoat with a soft, dense undercoat. It comes in white and black or liver, roan and blue or liver, or tricolor. It stands at about 18 to 21 inches in height at the shoulder and weighs 40 to 50 pounds. It has close-lying ears that need to be checked regularly, as they are prone to injury or infection.
