The field spaniel resulted from crossing the Springer Spaniel and Cocker Spaniel. This was done to restore the breed to its former type. The Field Spaniel is fun loving, independent and intelligent with an easygoing attitude. It has a great affinity for human companionship.
The Field Spaniel is fairly active and playful. Fanciers claim he makes a fine family pet for suburban or country living.
Size: The Field Spaniel stands around 18 in, 46 cm and weighs from 35-50 lb. Coat: The medium-length coat is flat or slightly waved and sufficiently dense to resist weather. It is silky in texture with a good gloss.
Appearance: On the chest, belly and behind the legs there is setter-like feathering.
Grooming: Frequent brushing to remove dead hair will keep the coat shiny. Some tidy-up trimming on the head, throat and feet is required.
