Is a English Springer Spaniel right for you?

The English Springer Spaniel is part of the Gundog group who are often particularly affectionate dogs, having originally been bred to be co-operative and respond to human commands. The oldest of the sporting gundogs, it's name is derived from the original practice of 'springing' forward to flush game into nets.

Today English Springer Spaniels are the most popular of the spaniels for working in the field, and are the fifth most popular pedigree breed registered with the Kennel Club, with over 10,000 puppies registered annually.

When searching for the perfect puppy, it is worth noting that two distinct strains for this breed exist - the 'show' type, and the 'working' type. They differ in both appearance and temperament, and it is important to match the characteristics with your requirements.
