Field Spaniel Dog Temperament

The field spaniel is happiest when he has a job to do. Although independent in nature, he is devoted, sensitive and willing to please. Always cheerful and affectionate, he is an excellent family companion as long as he is given regular exercise. The field spaniel is especially known for his tractable nature. It is typical for a field spaniel to be somewhat reserved with strangers.

Field Spaniel Dog Care

The field spaniel needs daily exercise, and even though he is happiest when given the chance to run and explore, his needs can be met with a long walk on leash. He does best when allowed to divide his time between house and yard. He thrives on human companionship and should not be deprived of his family. His coat needs brushing and combing once or twice weekly. Straggling hairs should be scissored every few months. The ears should be checked and cleaned regularly. Some can be somewhat sloppy, and some snore.
