The springer spaniel was bred for hunting. They had to make game spring from their hiding places. Spaniels enjoy splashing through the reeds, hunting for waterfowl and can be trained to retrieve it. The names are sometime abbreviated, for example, ESS = English Springer Spaniel.

Showdogs have such poise! Their owners show them with confidence, knowing the dogs are up to standard. We humans sometimes lack poise and have sense of not being up to standard. Indeed, the Bible says none of us are up to God's standard! "All have sinned and come short of the glory of God" ... but God has made a way for us to clean up our act through faith in Jesus Christ. Romans 3, 23 - 26

Spaniels love water so a commitment to grooming is required, else the coat will matt. A spaniel puppy's first grooming session should be kept short as they have little attention span and like to wriggle around. With patience, puppies get used to a brush.
