The Irish Water Spaniel is a strong, intelligent dual-purpose hunting dog with a natural instinct to please. An active and energetic companion, the Irish Water Spaniel may be reserved with strangers but is loyal to those he knows. The breed requires regular exercise, and his hypoallergenic coat looks best with occasional brushing and trimming.
The Irish Water Spaniel has webbed feet, which help him to excel at swimming.
