English Springer Spaniel...

 

Th e English Springer Spaniel is an older breed, appearing in paintings as early as the 1600s. It is possibly the ancestor of most modern spaniels; Springer Spaniels and Cocker Spaniels were not recognized as separate breeds until the 1800s. The purpose of the breed was to serve as a hunting dog. Before guns were used to shoot game, the land spaniel would "spring"—or flush—the gamebird into the air where a trained falcon or hawk would bring it to the handler. The Springer is an affectionate and easy-going family dog, and its alertness and attentiveness make it the ideal hunting companion. An intelligent dog, active and eager to please, a Springer is easily incorporated into a family setting.

Field-bred dogs tend to have shorter, coarser coats than the show-bred dogs, which should have longer fur. They normally only shed in summer and spring months, but shed occasionally in the autumn. The English Springer Spaniel requires daily brushing to prevent mats and tangles from forming in its coat. Particular attention should be given to the ears and feet. The ears need to be regularly checked for signs of infection and may require regular shaving on the under side, while the hair on the feet may need to be regularly trimmed.
