English Springer Spaniel
Gentle Pin Brush
Living With the SpringerThe English Springer Spaniel is cheerful, playful and gentle and shows his happy demeanor by constantly wagging his tail. He is enjoyed by many as a great family dog.
He is a loyal and attentive companion and does a good job as a guard dog.
The Springer is well behaved, quick to learn and adapts easily to either urban or rural settings. He is very much a dog that enjoys the company of people and does best in a home where someone is around all the time and he is not left alone.
Known for his intelligence, he is eager to please and willing to be obedient. This can be an advantage when training your Springer as long as you keep the training sessions short as well as varied and challenging.
Just How Active Is the English Springer Spaniel?The English Springer Spaniel is a strong and active dog with stamina to spare. He needs plenty of regular exercise to stay fit and mentally contented.
Agility is a good way to channel his energy and is a competitive sporting event in which the breed does well and seems to enjoy. Just be sure to wait until his full bone growth is completed before starting to train. Classes are often available in urban areas.
These spaniels also love the water and games of retrieval.
What Is The Ideal Living Space?Can do well in apartment if sufficiently exercised. A home with a back yard where he can run freely is always the most appreciated and the ideal setting. Make sure his surroundings are secure with no "escape" hatches! Without a yard, if there is a fenced dog park in your neck of the woods, that would be another good choice for off-leash exercise.
Is The ESS Good For Children?The well-socialized English Springer Spaniel has a good reputation with children and is generally thought of as an excellent and fun family companion.
However, he is a strong and energetic spaniel with working dog beginnings that requires training and socialization. With that in mind, the caution remains that an adult should always supervise interaction with children.
A Companion For Seniors?Not all seniors are sedentary, so it depends! They may be just right for some.
But, in general, the Springer is too energetic for a less active family or elderly owners. Best for families that like to be on the go with their dogs.
