What a bundle of energy the English Springer Spaniel is! The word 'springer' in their name says it all. English Springer Spaniels don't just walk, they sprint and jump through the air to get from A to B. Some people get overwhelmed by all this energy and may wish there was a 'stop' button.
They prefer to let out all their energy during walks or at any dog sport you decide to do with them.
When resting peacefully at home, Springers just love to feel cozy next to their owners. They are very eager to please and will learn anything just to get complimented on their behavior. Their sad brown eyes and long floppy ears are sure to lure a lot of treats out of your hand. But don't fall for it because their appetite can be big and it is not healthy for a Springer Spaniel to be overweight, leading to joint problems later on.
Springers choose their friends carefully. People who they like will be showered with affection, but those who aren't on their list of friends will be ignored and even bribery won't work.
The English Springer Spaniel is a great family dog that needs a job to be happy. Daily exercise is a must but we also recommend teaching them new things and enrolling in agility training to keep them content.
