Anonymous asked:
I have bad allergies, especially with dust, dandruff, do you think the English Toy Spaniel breed will be a good choice? Also, what are the main issues that English Spaniels have, on average with every dog? Thanks!!!

1 Comment


The English Toy Spaniel is not considered a hypoallergenic breed of dog. However, since you are allergic to dust and dandruff, I would insist that you get a scratch test for dogs as well. As you may just be allergic to what is on the dog, not the dog itself. In which case, you can make sure that with regular grooming, the dog doesn't effect your allergies. As for the English Toy Spaniel, their main health issues include Patellar Luxation, Patent Ductus Arteriosis (PDA) - a common heart defect, Mitral Valve Insufficiency - another heart defect, Cleft Palate, Cryptorchidism, Seborrhea, Retinal Dysplasia, Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease, Hydrocephalus, Umbilical Hernia, Open Fontanel, and Fused Toes. Unfortunately, the English Toy Spaniel has a lot of health problems that plague the breed.

Anonymous asked:
Would English Toy Spaniels do good if left alone during the day?



If you plan on leaving your dog for the day while you are at work, please understand that your dog has to hold his/her bladder all day long then. That is very hard on a dog and can cause issues. Make sure you can come back at lunch time, hire a dog walker or pay a neighbor, family member or fiend to come over in the afternoon and let your dog out to use the bathroom.


Then too, you could always create a place to set up a piddle pad.

Do English toy spaniels like to sit on your lap? On a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being the most stubborn and independent and 10 being the most willing to please, how would you rate the English toy?

1 Comment


Every dog is different, as some English Toy Spaniels like to sit in their owner's laps, while other's don't. They are an affectionate breed of dog normally and are about a 5 on the intelligence scale for training.

Anonymous asked:
How many times do you have to walk a English Toy Spaniel a day and do they shed hair?



English toy spaniels do shed but not a whole ton. They don`t need tons of excercise but a daily 20-30 minute walk should be fine. A dog that does not shed, is affectionate and doesnt need much excersise would be something like a bichon frise, poodle toy or mini, maltese ,affenpinscher,bolognese,chinese crested,havanese, shih tzu, yorkshire terrier,mexican hairless terrier toy or mini,american hairless terrier,mini schnauzers, silky terrier,skye terrier or a papillon which may shed a little. most of the terriers that i put here probably need a bit more excersise than the other small breeds. hope this helps.


Every dog needs exercise. If you don't want to exercise an animal, then get a cat or a fish. The English Toy Spaniel needs about an hour of exercise a day. And yes, the E.T.S does shed, quite a bit actually.
