American Water Spaniel Information
This eager, charming dog is both an excellent retriever, especially in water, and a wonderful companion. Its distinctive coat ranges from wavy to tightly curled and can be liver, brown or dark chocolate in color. While many dogs have long and well-document histories, the American Water Spaniel is a bit of a mystery. Experts speculate that it is descended from the Irish Water Spaniel, Curly-Coated Retriever, Field Spaniel and the now-extinct Old English Water Spaniel.
Very active and easy to train, this breed is a faithful companion, although it can be stubborn at times and aloof toward strangers. Fun fact: The American Water Spaniel is the official State Dog of Wisconsin. This is perfect considering all the lakes in the area and how much this breed loves to swim!
