English Springer Spaniel Temperament
English Springer Spaniels are known to be a cheerful, loyal and energetic breed. The English Springer Spaniel is an intelligent dog and loves to be part of the action.
They are a very affectionate, outgoing and playful breed, making them great for families with children and they generally get along well with other dogs, given they have been well socialised as a puppy. They are eager to please, quick to learn and willing to obey, making them a fairly easy dog to train, and training is best undertaken with small treat rewards.
English Springer Spaniel Health Issues
Hip Dysplasia: A common disease where a malformation in the hip joint results in the joint rubbing and grinding. This can lead to irritation, pain and impaired walking ability.
Ear Infections: Dogs have a vertical ear canal (unlike humans which are horizontal) so it is easy for moisture and debris to be retained within the ear canal, causing irritation. It is seen most in floppy eared breeds, so it is important that ears be dried properly after a bath or swim and ensure they are cleaned regularly.
Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA): A group of retinal degeneration diseases that worsens over time and can lead to impaired vision or even blindness.
