English Springer Spaniel personality
The English Springer Spaniel breed was developed to create a gun dog that could flush out wild birds for hunters to shoot. Although they're still popular dogs for people wanting to use them as working dogs, Springers are also popular companion dogs too. They're athletic, intelligent and extremely happy to take part in agility, tracking and obedience tests. A word of warning - although springer spaniels love people, they need to be socialised well as puppies. Springers can have short tempers when meeting other dogs.
Saying that, English Springer Spaniels are generally good with other pets in the household, even small ones like hamsters or guinea pigs. English Springer Spaniels will bark if strangers come to your house, but if you're looking for a guard dog, keep looking. They are loving, gentle dogs who expect even strangers to give them attention.
