Overview
This is an older breed that is considered to be the founding ancestor of modern Spaniels. The English Springer Spaniel is the largest of the Spaniel breeds. They were quite popular during the Renaissance period as they were ideal companions for the European hunter. This breed became popular in America in 1700. Currently, there are two distinct "types" of the English Springer Spaniel. Those bred for the conformation ring are referred to as "bench bred". Those that are bred for hunting and/or field trials are referred to as "field bred".
Character
The English Springer Spaniel excels not only in hunting on both land and water, but is an ideal family pet as well. They are a compact and medium sized breed, and are extremely athletic. Their expression is trusting, kind, and alert. This breed is hardy, sturdy, more quick and powerful than all other Spaniels.

Does your English Springer Spaniel bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
English Springer Spaniels are sociable, gregarious, and gentle. They are also courageous, highly intelligent, and sincere. They are excellent with children and love everyone. The English Springer Spaniel thrives on human interaction and must be with their family as much as possible. If they are left alone for extended periods of time they will become destructive and are prone to excessive barking. They are good with other pets, but may not tolerate same sex dogs. They are not suitable for homes with pet birds.
Care
This breed requires regular grooming with a stiff bristle brush. Bathing or dry shampooing should only be done when necessary. Their ears must be cleaned and checked on a consistent basis. It is important to keep the hair on the feet trimmed to prevent burrs or other objects from becoming imbedded. They are prone to hip dysplasia, PRA, PFK, and epilepsy. This breed tends to gain weight easily and must not be overfed. The English Springer Spaniel has recently become afflicted with a serious personality disorder called "Rage Syndrome". A rare disorder, this syndrome will cause an otherwise normal dog to go into a sudden rage and viciously attack. Should this occur, the English Springer Spaniel will not respond to any commands. This condition has been found to be a form of epilepsy and is treatable.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The English Springer Spaniel has a coat that is of moderate length. It is weather-resistant, straight, lies close to the body, and is glossy. There is feathering on the brisket, chest, ears, and legs. The coat color comes in black and white, liver and white, and there may be tan markings. English Springer Spaniels are average shedders.
Training
The English Springer Spaniel benefits from early intensive socialization and obedience. They must have firmness, fairness, praise, and consistency. This breed enjoys and excels in agility, fly-ball, tracking, retrieving, obedience, and, of course, hunting. They are also capable of making wonderful therapy dogs. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new English Springer Spaniel puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
This breed is energetic and requires daily exercise. They have the ability to thrive in the country as well as the city. They enjoy brisk walks, bicycling, ball chasing, and swimming. They will do well in an apartment dwelling provided they are sufficiently exercised and given a safe space to run. It is important to remember that the English Springer Spaniel be given plenty of attention and stimulation. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

We have big dogs next door. I have a park and sidewalk I can take my English Springer Spaniel too, but should I worry about her being frightened in her own backyard?

If the dogs next door are aggressive then I would worry about the negative effects on my dog, whether my dog copies the other dogs behavior and acts territorial as well; or that my dog would become scared of other dogs. However, with proper training and socialization, your dog should be perfectly fine. But you must not be frightened of the dogs next door, if you are, your dog will pick up on that fear and either become aggressive to protect you or become frightened as well. So you must stay calm and show your dog that there is nothing to fear.

No, they are not prone to dry skin, but like any person, any dog can get it. A grain-free, high quality dog food can keep your dogs skin moisturized but the changing of seasons can make your dog's skin dry anyway. Using Head and Shoulder's Shampoo works wonder's for dogs with dry/itchy and even oily skin.

A pup's weight all depends on the dam, how much milk the pup gets and how big the litter is. Your breeder and vet will be able to tell you if your pup is at the right weight.
