With his long silky ears and soulful eyes, the Field Spaniel is hard to resist, especially combined with his docile temperament. This sporting dog moves with effortless grace and loves nothing more than to join in on family activities, including playtime and a good romp. He tends to stick close to his family, but has just enough of an independent streak to keep things interesting. As sensitive as he is, your Field Spaniel puppy responds best to positive training. He's a real people-pleaser and a fun-loving companion.

History & Job

Origin: England

Year Recognized: 1894

Breed History & Job Description: The Field Spaniel’s rise and fall and rise-again is a cautionary tale in three acts. Act I: In the early 1800s, Field Spaniels are able, dependable hunting dogs. Act II: With the advent of dog shows after mid-century, breeders produce a showy Field Spaniel, exaggerating its long, low shape to extremes and negating its worth as a gundog. Act III: In the late 1960s, enthusiasts revive the breed by getting back to basics and rebuilding the dog along its original working lines.
