English Springer Spaniels are members of a breed of old and pure origins from which all other British spaniels are said to be descended. They were originally used to find and spring game for net, falcon or greyhound, but nowadays they are employed to find, flush and retrieve. They are highly appreciated in many countries as their physique allows them to easily infiltrate marshes and bushes.

Did you know ?

English Springer Spaniels have a gait all of their own. They swing their forelegs forward straight from the shoulder, so the feet are thrown forward in an easy, free way. The hocks should drive well under the body, following the line of the forelegs. When moving at a slower tempo they may pace, which is typical of the breed.
