Field Spaniel

Sporting Breed

Shawn and Sky from Calico Field Spaniels

The mild-mannered Field Spaniel makes a great pet for the active family.  A very friendly dog when socialized during puppyhood.  They love to play with children but do not enjoy roughhousing.  They can become devoted to a single family member.  They enjoy working and a challenge (fetch, hide and seek, doggy games, etc.), and need to be fully exercised.  The Field Spaniel will go for long walks but enjoys to run.  Best suited for rural life with a large fenced yard.  It should be brushed regularly, especially after an outside romp or stroll in the woods.

We STRONGLY recommend that you get your dog from a respectable breeder or rescue organization.  Pet store puppies may get their dogs from Puppy Mills that normally breed only for profit, not quality or concern for the puppy or its eventual owner.

If you would like help locating a breeder or rescue agency near you please E-Mail PGAA (, and let us know your city/state and the type of dog you are looking for.  Do not assume that PGAA has qualified all of the breeders or rescues on this site.  Do your own check of each breeder or rescue — be sure that you are comfortable with the organization before you buy, adopt or turn-over a dog.
