The English Springer Spaniel, or Springer is a medium-sized dog with a big heart. Their floppy ears and big, dark hazel eyes will make you melt, and gave rise to the phrase 'Spaniel Eyes'. The Springer is a well balanced dog that moves quickly and gracefully, it's silky feathered belly, legs and chest flowing in the breeze.
The young Springer tends to be a greedy eater and can be prone to obesity during the formative months. Owners should ensure that their English Springer Spaniel's stick to a strict dietary regime monitoring serving size and nutritional value.
The English Springer Spaniel has a luxurious coat of a medium length. The coat is waterproof, weather proof and even thorn proof. Some trimming may be required around the feathers, and regular grooming is essential. If you've been out and about you will need to check the coat for twigs, matts and grass which can become caught in the coat.
