The History of the Field Spaniel

The Field Spaniel is a relatively medium sized dog breed that is closely related to Cocker Spaniels. The Field Spaniel is in fact such a close relative to Cocker Spaniels, many people consider to this dog breed to be simply just a large version of Cocker Spaniels.

Field Spaniels originated in England back in the eighteen and nineteen hundreds. Over the years the Field Spaniel has changed in ways with its appearance, and up until 1948 Field Spaniels actually had much longer and more disproportionate bodies than what they do today. Now, the Field Spaniel has been selectively bred into a more evenly figured dog breed in hopes of increasing the popularity of the Field Spaniel. Sadly, Field Spaniels are still a very unknown dog breed, even within the Dog Community; in the Field Spaniels home country of England they are relatively an unheard of dog. Here in the United States though, surprisingly enough this actually a recognized breed somehow.

If you like Field Spaniels or just Spaniels in general, I highly recommend that you check out my other blog.
