Welsh Springer Spaniel (Sporting Group)

A compact dog built for hard work, the Welsh Springer Spaniel is a distinct breed, not a variety of the English Springer Spaniel. With his excellent nose and slightly webbed feet, the breed is a versatile hunter, water dog and retriever. Their trademark coat is a striking red and white in color.

A Look Back

During the Renaissance, the “Land Spaniel,” a Welsh Springer-type dog with red and white markings, was used for retrieving, and tapestries of the time depict a dog very similar to the Welsh. Originally, he was bred to spring game toward a net or into the air prior to the invention and common use of the gun. Although the breed was fashionable with the nobility in the 1700’s, the English Springer Spaniel soon replaced it in popularity. A small group of breeders kept the breed from becoming extinct.

Temperament

Active, loyal and possessing an even disposition, the Welsh Springer Spaniel is an excellent companion for families and hunters alike. The breed is a “velcro” dog and prefers to be with its people. Welsh Springers possess a stubborn streak, but respond well to training if it starts early. The Welsh Springer Spaniel is an active dog displaying a loyal and affectionate disposition. Although reserved with strangers, he is not timid, shy nor unfriendly. To this day he remains a devoted family member and hunting companion. (AKC)
