The Spaniel was thought to be originally brought from Spain probably by Caesar's conquering armies.

Dr. Caius in 1570 uses the term "Springer" for the land Spaniels and this is probably the first time that the actual name "Springer" was used.

After the discovery of gunpowder and the development of the gun for sporting use, there was a need for a Spaniel that could work in front of the hunter to flush out game.

In the nineteenth century the Boughey family of Shropshire developed a special strain of Spaniel through selective breeding that was to set the standards of the English Springer Spaniel that we know today.

Right, that's the history over with.

More realistically the Springer Spaniel is a lively energetic dog, that in the right surroundings can give a lot of love and affection.
