Field Spaniels are well balanced, noble, upstanding hunting dogs that are built for endurance. They are well known for being exceptionally docile, active, sensitive and independent, but they express their love of life – as well as their sparkling, mischievous side – in close regular contact with their master or mistress.
Conveys the impression of high breeding, character and nobility.
Strong, straight, muscular back and loins, deep, well developed chest with moderately well-sprung ribs.
Black, liver or roan, or any of these with tan markings.
Moderately long and broad, set low and well feathered.
Set low and never carried above the topline, nicely feathered, lively action, reaches to around the hock.
Long, flat, glossy and silky, never curly, short or wiry, but dense and weatherproof.
Closest of all the spaniels to the Cocker, but bigger and more powerful, Field Spaniels are probably descended from the Black and Tan Spaniel crossed with other breeds. These natural retrievers with a very good nose pull out all the stops, even on difficult terrain, making the most of their intelligence and versatility.
