Did You Know?

In the early 1880's when Cocker Spaniels were introduced into America and until 1901 the sole distinction between the Cockers and the Field Spaniels for show purposes was one of size.

Considerable difficulty was encountered in establishing the Field Spaniel in the United States due to the necessity for introducing Springer and Cocker crosses in order to eliminate the exaggerations. This rendered many dogs ineligible for registration with the AKC.

The Field Spaniel is known for his level-headedness and perseverance.

Phineas Bullock of England is credited with perpetuating a dog of tremendous body length and lowness to the ground, together with phenomenal bone, which culminated for a time in a grotesque caricature of a spaniel instead of the Field Spaniel we know today.

Although the standard acknowledges initial reserve in the temperament of the Field Spaniel upon initially meeting someone for the first time, any display of shyness, aggression, or fear is considered extremely undesirable.
