20 Things Only Springer Spaniel Owners Would Understand

One of the oldest breeds of dog that is still around today is the English Springer Spaniel. This type of dog has been known for centuries in Great Britain, and were likely introduced by the Roman legions during Julius Caesar’s invasion of the island. Though this is speculation, there is some hard evidence of the Spaniel’s existence from as early as 300 AD. The breed was mentioned by name in an old Welsh law. As time passed, the Spaniel began to branch off into distinct breeds. The earliest depictions of the Springer Spaniel can be found in some 16th and 17th century artwork. Most of these paintings and prints showed the Springer Spaniel in their natural role – hunting.

Later in the breed’s history, the pups in a Spaniel litter would be divided by size. The smaller dogs would be used in the hunting of birds (particularly woodcock) and were called Cocker Spaniels. The larger dogs would be used to “spring” (flush) game and were thus called Springers. The breed was officially recognized by the The Kennel Club of Britain in 1902. Just over a decade later, the American Kennel Club also recognized the English Springer Spaniel as a distinct breed. The popularity of the breed soared, and many Springer Spaniels were purchased by Americans for different types of jobs and roles. They remain incredibly popular to this day, and represent one of the best breeds in the world.

If you own a Springer Spaniel, you know that they are a unique breed. They have a lot of characteristics or traits that need to be considered as a Spaniel owner.
