The Welsh Springer Spaniel is a very sociable, cheerful, and friendly creature. This is a dog that makes for a great family pet and companion, suiting both the experienced and the inexperienced dog owner. These dogs are highly intelligent, quick to learn, responsive, and eager to please, all of which adds up to easier training. They are good natured dogs, with plenty of loyalty, affection, and love to give. The Welsh Springer Spaniel loves to be around his family, and enjoys interactive play and activity. He is a tactile dog, and is fully of sloppy licks and kisses for his loved ones. This is not a dog for those that want an aloof pet, or for those with little time to dedicate to their pet. The Welsh Springer Spaniel is very attentive, but also very sensitive, so training methods must always be calm and positive.

The Welsh Springer Spaniel does not like to be handled roughly, and although he gets along well with kids care should be taken with smaller, boisterous children. Some younger Welsh Springer Spaniels can wet themselves from excitement, stress, or nerves. These dogs are reserved when it comes to strangers, and will generally bark to raise the alarm if anything seems amiss, making them effective watchdogs. The Welsh Springer Spaniel gets along well with other pets. In order to instill confidence early socialization is recommended with the Welsh Springer Spaniel. This is the perfect pet for an active person or family, with plenty of love and devotion to give back to their pet.
