The English Springer Spaniel is a remarkable breed. However, to best insure a satisfying and long-term relationship (for both you and the dog), we recommend you thoroughly research each breed that interests you.

Versatility

Hunting – Field Trials – Hunt Tests – Tracking – Contraband Detection – Search & Rescue – Obedience – Agility – Conformation – Therapy & Visitation – Assistance – Hiking – Camping – Skijoring – Playing & more!

Few breeds can lay claim to the versatility exhibited by English Springer Spaniels. But, perhaps, most importantly, one would be hard pressed to find a better companion than a responsibly bred English Springer Spaniel!
