Welsh Springer Spaniel
The Welsh Springer Spaniel dates to the 1600's in Wales. The "Springer" Spaniel is so named because of their hunting style which is to "spring" hidden game. It can hunt tirelessly for hours over difficult terrain and is resistant to poor weather as well as being unafraid to jump into very cold water. Happy willing and independent, Welsh springer spaniels are outdoor dogs and love to run, hunt, swim and chase. The Welsh springer spaniel is equipped for both hot and cold weather. Welsh springer spaniels make excellent family dogs and get along well with children.
