Welsh Springer Spaniel - Breed and Grooming Tips

A compact dog built for hard work, the Welsh Springer Spaniel is a distinct breed, not a variety of the English Springer Spaniel. With his excellent nose and slightly webbed feet, the breed is a versatile hunter, water dog and retriever. Their trademark coat is a striking red and white in color. The beautiful coat isn’t just ornamental—it’s a waterproof, weatherproof, and thornproof suit that enables Welshies to show off their renowned versatility in all climates and on all terrains



A Look Back: The history of the Welsh Springer begins as far back as 7000 BC, when the first hunting dogs were employed by man. However, a trend in selective breeding, spurred on by the newly popularized Darwinian theory, eventually brought back the breed to Victorian England, and the breed competed in the same class with the English Springer, the only difference at that time being color.



Right breed for you? Welshies are loyal, hardworking hunters famous for persistence, stamina, and an uncanny nose for birds. Energetic Welshies train well and need lots of exercise and human contact to reach their full potential. The Welsh authority John Phillips wrote about his breed, “A sense of humor, expressed as a love of games of all sorts, is an endearing feature of the breed. … Though he seems dignified and even aloof at times, with his spaniel-sad face, he is never really gloomy, and delights in fun and frolic.”
