Welsh Springer Spaniel Information

Welsh Springer SpanielThis happy, upbeat pup adds a spark of life wherever he goes. The Welsh Springer Spaniels are known as cheerful dogs who love to work hard and play hard. With this attitude, they make excellent family dogs!

Fascinatingly, the Welsh Springer Spaniel’s history dates back as far back as 7,000 B.C. to the time when hunting dogs were first used by man. So, you could say he is old hat at hunting. His body is strong and ready to work, and when combined with his excellent nose and webbed feet, this versatile guy can serve as a hunter, retriever and water dog. His trademark red and white coat isn’t just for looks, either; it is waterproof and designed to protect him from the elements.
