Spaniel' was a broad description for a dog that did spanielly things – flushing birds on hunts. It wasn't until the advent of dog shows that spaniels were carved out into different breeds according to size and coat. The Field Spaniel name was given to the group of solid-coloured, large land spaniels.
Active, outdoorsy types that like romping about in the countryside for hours each day, and who want a loving, family pet to relax with in the evening.
People who don't like repeating themselves. Get used to explaining that, no, your dog isn't a Cocker Spaniel – you'll be doing this on walks for the dog's lifetime!
Average size - could pick up if you had to in an emergency
High (Two hours or more)
Without sufficient mental and physical exercise will probably do the wall of death around the living room!
Jacket and skinny trousers
Any feathering can get knotty. Some coats self-clean by depositing mud all over the kitchen floor.
All canines drop some hair, think of it as dog glitter!
