English Springer Spaniel Character
The Springer breeding line has almost split into working and show dog strains. A working dog purely as a pet will be hard going... they need a job to do and they'll do that job with boundless energy, intelligence and enthusiasm. A calmer breed line is needed for a pet and given the right character; they are excellent dogs for all ages, especially children, and fit into most households. Lovely temperaments... basically an all round classic dog.
