Welsh Springer Spaniel

Welsh Springer Spaniel The Welsh Springer Spaniel breed is an active and friendly dog. It is a member of the spaniel family, bred to be gun dogs and help in bird hunting by flushing them out and retrieving them. Welsh Springer Spaniels make very good housepets and companions for children and other animals because of their gentle disposition. The Welsh Springer Spaniel's Behavior Source: Wikipedia. Recommended for: pet, working dog The Welsh Springer Spaniel dog breed is a loyal, active and affectionate breed. It is reserved with strangers without being timid or shy and is affectionate to members of the family, especially children, and accepts other housepets with a playful attitude. Weimaraners are often considered quick learners. But it can be difficult to hold their attention if they find something more stimulating around them. Once trained, they make very obedient companions. They are bred for work and as such require lots of exercise to avoid any destructive behavior such as looking for entertainment by chewing furniture or other materials. Remember that breed only provides a general clue as to any individual dog's actual behavior. Make sure to get to know dogs well before bringing them into your home.
