The American Water Spaniel is a bright, easily trainable dog that loves to help out. A great bird hunting dog, the American Water Spaniel can also be an effective guard dog as well as a great all around companion. Friendly and loving to play with, these dogs are great with kids and make for a stellar family dog. They should be socialized early to prevent timidity, but that aside, these dogs are exceedingly pleasant.
The American Water Spaniel is either liver or chocolate in color with or without small white patches on the chest and white on the toes.
