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.

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.

Field Spaniels love wide open spaces, so urban life is not for them, but they are wonderful companions in the countryside. They are also ideal hunting dogs, with great flushing and retrieving skills.
