Recognized for his endurance and intelligence, the Field Spaniel is a medium-sized dog that finds, flushes and retrieves birds on land and in water. The Field Spaniel’s gentle affectionate personality makes him a fun-loving companion that likes to be involved in family activities. The Field Spaniel should be brushed weekly and needs occasional trimming.
The Field Spaniel is a rare breed in the U.S., especially compared to the more popular spaniel breeds, the Cocker Spaniel and English Springer Spaniel. Poor breeding practices during the late 1800s nearly caused the breed to become extinct. Mortimer Smith is credited with reviving the breed.
