The Welsh Springer Spaniel is an excellent water dog, adapted to long and hard work in any, requiring great endurance, showing great excitement and passion in work.

Suitable as a companion dog, it is larger and stronger in size than a Cocker Spaniel, but smaller than an English Springer Spaniel.

The Welsh Springer Spaniel is another representative of the spaniel breed. It got its name from the way of hunting. The coat should not be so long as to impede work, yet thick enough to protect against adverse terrain and weather conditions. The Welsh Springer Spaniel is an active dog with a loyal and affectionate disposition. He always remains a friend and assistant in the hunt and a devoted member of the family. Although he treats strangers with restraint, he is not cowardly, timid, or aggressive.
