Field Spaniel - Care and Grooming

The Field Spaniel is 17–19 inches (43–48 cm) tall at the withers. Its long, silky coat comes in solid colours of liver and black. Tan points are allowed as is Roan, which is defined as a blend of both dark and white hairs without large patches of either colour. The Field Spaniel is somewhat longer than taller to a ratio of 7:8. The UK Kennel Club Breed Standard states Field Spaniels should weigh 18–25 kg (40–55 lb).

While the breed standard gives specific limits to the size of the dog, it seems that there is a vast difference between the European preference of size to the one in United States. While in US the idea is more or less "the smaller the better" in Europe, specially in the Northern Europe, the idea is "the bigger the better". However, the size difference between a male and female in Europe can be rather big. It remains the breeders and buyers consideration to decide which they like - or would they rather stay in the golden middle

 


Field Spaniel Temperament

A noble, docile, and graceful dog, the Field Spaniel is a breed that is responsive, intelligent, and affectionate. These dogs have a gentle nature and are eager to please, keen, and enthusiastic, with plenty to offer as family pets. A very active and energetic breed, the Field Spaniel loves to play, exercise, and join in with all sorts of activities, such as running, hiking, biking, and more. He is the ideal exercise companion as well as a good family pet, although his love of play means that he may be prone to getting himself messy and then traipsing mud and mess through the house! A very sociable and friendly breed, the Field Spaniel is well suited to the more inexperienced dog owner as well as the experienced.

Field Spaniels love people, and will get on well with children, especially when raised with them - although he does not like to handled roughly so care should be taken around younger, more boisterous children. He will also get along well with other pets, and should be fine around strangers. Some Field Spaniels can be very independent, so confidence and assertiveness is needed in training. However, training should be fairly easy with this breed, as these dogs are intelligent, eager to learn, and obedient. The Field Spaniel is well suited to family life, and makes for a good family pet with a stable and well balanced nature.

Field Spaniel Appearance

A medium sized dog, the Field Spaniel is a sturdy build, and is a handsome dog with an intelligent and eager expression. The coat of the Field Spaniel is long, flat, and glossy, with a beautiful, silky appearance and texture. As with other spaniels, his long silky ears hang to the side of his head, framing his face perfectly. The coloring of the Field Spaniel can vary and includes liver, black, and speckled roan, and some may have tan markings. The weight of the Field Spaniel is around 35-50 pounds, and the height is around 17 inches for females and 18 inches for males.

Field Spaniel Grooming

The Field Spaniel is a medium to heavy shedder, and is therefore not really suited to allergy sufferers. The grooming requirements for the breed can vary, and during heavier shedding periods grooming will need to be more frequent. At other times of the year his coat should be brushed every other day, and you should keep an eye on straggly hairs that may need to be trimmed. You should check his ears are clean and dry for hygiene reasons and to reduce the chances of infections.

Field Spaniel Health Problems and Life Expectancy

The life expectancy of the Field Spaniel is around 10-12 years, and there are a number of health issues relating to this breed, although Field Spaniels are largely a healthy and hardy breed. Some of the health problems to look out for include cataracts, thyroid problems, PRA, and HD. Parents of the Field Spaniel puppy should have OFA and CERF certificates.

Field Spaniel History

The Field Spaniel was developed in England. These dogs were bred to hunt out birds from wherever they were hiding, and once the bird had been shot by the hunter to go and retrieve it.
