The English Springer Spaniel is a sporting dog for flushing birds.
Charactered by long, drooping ears, a medium to long coat, Females
are around 19" tall at the withers, weighing around 40 lbs., and
males around 20", weighing about 50 lbs. Black and white, liver
and white, or either combination with tan points (tri-colored), with
or without ticking (freckles) . Tails are norrmaly docked short.The
Springer is an affectionate and easy-going family dog, and its
alertness and attentiveness make it the ideal hunting companion. An
intelligent dog, moderate to high energy level, hyper active and
eager to please, a Springer is easily incorporated into a family
setting. Its long legged build makes it among the fastest of the
spaniels. It has unlimited stamina and needs plenty of activity, to
focus its mind and to provide substantial exercise, although this is
different for each dog. Like any breed described as "good with
children", a Springer Spaniel must be accustomed to children.
Any dog that is not well socialized with children will not behave
predictably around them. In general, the breed is good with other
pets, such as cats and ferrets. However, some English Springer
Spaniels may not be suitable for homes with pet birds without
additional training, due to their natural hunting instinct.
