English Springer Spaniel is a breed of gun dog in the Spaniel family traditionally used for flushing and retrieving game. It is an affectionate, excitable breed with a typical lifespan of twelve to fourteen years. They are very similar to the Welsh Springer Spaniel.
The English springer spaniel is often considered a great hunting breed for first-time bird dog owners. A springer with basic obedience training and some introductory field training will be able to fulfill most hunters’ desires.
Additionally, springers are regarded as the prime choice for pheasant hunting. With an incredible nose, they remain within gun range while tirelessly working the field, never hesitating to dive into thick cover. Springer spaniel skills include multi-tasking, drive, pace and style. A springer’s style afield is described as a “windshield-wiper pattern,” as they zip from one side of the field to the other and back again. It is important to remember that the more time you dedicate to training, the more complete hunting experience you will have with your springer.
As a family pet, English Springer Spaniels are friendly, gregarious, and eager to please. They are quick learners and are known to be easy to train. They are great family dogs and do well both with children and other dogs—though they may not do as well with cats. English Springers enjoy lots of human contact and tend to get bored (and can sometimes be destructive) if left alone for extended periods. Be sure to take socialization seriously and work with a reputable breeder to avoid any issues.
