The Appearance of The Field Spaniel

Despite Field Spaniels being as unpopular of a dog breed as they are, the Field Spaniel is a truly unique Gundog with many great and beautiful qualities to it. One of the many standout qualities of the Field Spaniels is its long, flat, wavy, glossy coat. If any Spaniel has an amazing coat it's definitely the Field Spaniel. Their coats come in color variations of deep chocolate browns, jet black, liver, black, roan with beige markings, and white.

Field Spaniel dogs have average withers of about 18 and a half inches while bitch Field Spaniels have average withers of about 17 to 17 and a half inches. Field Spaniels vary considerably great in weight. In general healthy Field Spaniels weigh from 34 to 56 pounds. Although these Gundogs can weigh more or less if they are over fed or under fed.

Field Spaniels have soft gentle facial characteristics. The Field Spaniel has somewhat wide set eyes that are almost always either solid dark brown or medium brown. Field Spaniels have noticeably droopy long floppy ears that manage to add an extra bit of elegance to this dog breed. Generally, Field Spaniels have their tales docked, but naturally Field Spaniels have medium length tails. These Gundogs have proportionately long bodies and somewhat short legs when compared to other Spaniels.
