English Springer Spaniel Facts:
English Springer Spaniel Physical Characteristics:Lifespan: 12 years
Weight: 25kg (55lbs)
The Springer is an affectionate and easy-going family dog, and its alertness and attentiveness make it the ideal hunting companion. An intelligent dog, active and eager to please, an English Springer is easily incorporated into a family setting.
Although good with children, it tends to have a moderate energy level. Its long-legged build makes it among the fastest of the spaniels. It has exceptional stamina and needs moderate amounts of activity, to focus its mind and to provide exercise, although this is different for each dog.
English Springers need plenty of exercise in order to run off their excess energy. These dogs can be slightly skitty or over excitable but adequate walking can prevent this.
