English Springer Spaniel Gifts

English Springer Spaniel -  The Spaniel was thought to be originally brought from Spain probably by Ceasar's conquering armies.

Dr. Caius in 1570 uses the term "Springers" 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 standard of the English Springer Spaniel that we know today.

Recognised by the Kennel Club in 1902
