About English springer spaniel
English Springer Spaniels are smart and eager to please, not to mention enthusiastic. They are happy dogs and seem to have a good sense of humor. They usually do well with children if they are brought up with them from puppyhood and are affectionate toward their families.
The English Springer Spaniel was first recognized as a distinct breed in 1902, by the Kennel Club (England). Before that time, the English Springer and the Cocker Spaniels came from the same litters, with the smaller Cockers being used to hunt woodcock and the larger English used to “spring” larger game.
English Springer Spaniels came from England to Canada and to the United States starting in the early 1900s. In 1924, the breed became better known in this country when the English Springer Spaniel Field Trial Association was founded. The association became the breed’s parent club three years later.
Today’s English Springer Spaniel continues to excel in field and hunting tests, obedience trials, agility trials and conformation shows. The English Springer Spaniel Field Trial Association promotes all of these disciplines for the breed and remains the parent club with the AKC. The most recent breed standard was updated and approved in 1994.
The English Springer Spaniel retains its unique type: moderate size, substance and balance, with a beautiful chiseled head, an endearing expression and endless devotion to its people.
