More details about the Field Spaniel

Field Spaniel: Origins and history

The Field Spaniel was originally bred as a working dog. However, they soon became unpopular with hunters and farmers. The Field Spaniel's dark coat meant they were difficult to track during hunts. As a result, breeders began selecting these Spaniels for their long, glossy coats and they soon became a common sight at dog shows throughout the early 20th century. In 2009, they were only 51 Field Spaniels registered in the UK. 

FCI classification of the Field Spaniel
