Gifts For Springer Spaniel Owners
The English Springer Spaniel is a breed of gun dog, traditionally used for flushing and retrieving game. It is a medium sized compact dog and an affectionate and excitable breed. It is closely related with the English Cocker Spaniel, less than a century ago, springers and cockers would come from the same litter. The smaller "cockers" hunted woodcock while the larger littermates were used to flush, or "spring" the game birds into the air. There is a great difference between show-bred and field-bred dogs and they almost appear to be different breeds. The show-bred dogs have longer fur, more pendant ears and are generally more thickly boned and heavier than field-bred dogs. Field-bred dogs tend to have coarser, shorter coats with less pendulous ears and are selected for nose, hunting ability and response to training.
Typically friendly, eager to please, quick to learn and willing to obey they make good family pets. Like children though, if left alone too long they can become mischievous and destructive through boredom. They love water and tend to get wet whenever the opportunity arises. Again much like children.Mugs | iPhone Covers | Bags |
