Windsor the Field Spaniel

House dogs, working dogs and working dogs which make perfect house dogs at Facebook and at our regular website

Here is Windsor the Field Spaniel in the company of his human and his vaccinating vet. The Springer Spaniel breeds are a branch of the Spaniels used for flushing and retrieving game (springing fowl into the air). Within the breed there are two distinct blood lines. The shorter, heavy boned, heavy coated and long eared show line (also referred to as the Bench Spaniel) and the taller, finer boned and light coated working line which is a separate breed known as Field Spaniel. Though they were originally the same breed. the two types are completely segregated from each other when it comes to purpose. They are both good natured, intelligent and obedient and make good pets. The field-working type has a slightly more stable and independent personality than the show type as the show Bench Spaniels have some previous history of erratic personality traits. All the Spaniels have the same potential for ear infections which result from the long hair and long ears.
