The Field Spaniel’s ancestry can be traced to the English Cocker Spaniel. This breed originated in England. Due to some poor breeding, this breed was almost ruined; however, by 1920, breeders saved this breed by choosing selective breeding techniques. However, the popularity of the Cocker and Springer Spaniels have somewhat overshadowed the Field Spaniel.
The Field Spaniel is a bit on the heavier side when compared to the Cocker Spaniel. This breed also has a longer body when compared to the Cocker. They have very large nose, and eyes that are almond shaped. They have a muscular neck. The coat is silky and comes in liver or black colors. The tail is customarily docked. Usually, an adult Field Spaniel will grow up to a height of 18 inches, and weigh around 35-50 pounds.

This breed is quite independent in nature. It is very smart and playful, hence regular exercise is necessary to subdue its active nature. This breed of dog is quite well-known for its obedient nature. They are known to be timid, hence socialize this breed with other dog breeds from the puppy stage itself. Socializing is an important task, as some have been known to be reserved with strangers. They are good with children; however, slightly older children should only be allowed to play with them. They are easily trainable, but should be trained in a consistent manner.
The Field Spaniel is susceptible to hip dysplasia and ear infections.
