Bred to be a premier hunting dog, springer spaniels have most definitely earned their name. Their primary purpose was to “spring” game, meaning they would make the birds go into flight so that the hunters could see them. These dogs also have an incredibly close relation, the Cocker Spaniel. These dogs used to be the same breed with a litter of puppies being designated to a hunting task based on size. It was in the 20th century that these dogs were officially categorised as different breeds.
If you love these dogs, you’re in good company; the famous Scot William Wallace had a pet Spaniel called Merlin.
