Welsh Springer Spaniel General Appearance:

The Welsh Springer Spaniel is a muscular working dog with a compact, well-balanced build. They have dark, oval eyes which give them a kind expression, true to their temperament. Their lightly-feathered ears are held at eye level, and their muzzle is as long as the slightly-domed skull. Welsh Springer Spaniels have docked tails which can slightly elevate when they’re excited. The coat is naturally straight, flat, and soft to the touch — but it is thick enough to protect the dog against water, heavy brush, and harsh weather while hunting. The chest, belly, tail, and backs of the legs are lightly feathered, and a Welsh Springer Spaniel’s coat can be any pattern with red and white coloring.

Welsh Springer Spaniel Temperament:

The Welsh Springer Spaniel is an energetic, upbeat, and affectionate dog. The Welsh Springer Spaniel breed may have been bred for hunting, but their friendly demeanor and loyalty make them a perfect family pet.

They are affectionate and playful with family members, especially children and even other household pets. This breed can be suspicious of strangers, particularly on their home territory, but socializing Welsh Springer Spaniel puppies early on can help ensure an open and friendly pup.

As a sporting dog bred for working, the Welsh Springer Spaniel needs regular exercise to stay happy and healthy. Without enough active time per day, they may become hyper or act out.

Welsh Springer Spaniel Fun Fact:

The Welsh Springer Spaniel is nicknamed a “Velcro dog” breed because of their desire to be as close to their owner as possible. Because of this hunger for your attention, make sure you don’t leave your Welshie home alone for too long, as they are prone to suffering from separation anxiety.
