About Springer Spaniels

When I talk to Springer Spaniel owners about their dogs, the most frequent word that they use to describe them is ‘mad’! The next thing they talk about is how they just love to be with you, whatever you are doing and wherever you are going. The phrase ‘Velcro Dog’ (as in ‘sticks to you like Velcro’) also cropped up quite frequently.

Completely devoted to their owners, it isn’t hard to imagine how the phrase to “follow one around like a spaniel” came into being.

Like the Cockers favoured by the Kennedys and Nixon, Springers are also the choice of American Presidents - this time the Bush family.

The spaniel is widely assumed to have originated in Spain, with the word “spaniel” thought to be derived from the old French word “Espaignol” meaning “Spanish”. It may have been the Romans who were responsible for bringing these ‘Dogs of Spain’ to other parts of Europe.

However another theory suggests that the name “spaniel” may come from the French verb “espanir” meaning “to crouch or flatten” (which describes a style of hunting involving crouching and springing).

They are extraordinary sniffer dogs and have been credited with saving countless lives in service due to their ability to detect bombs, explosives and weapons. They can also sniff out drugs, contraband mobile phones in prisons, bumble bee nests or illegal immigrants!
