Easy going by nature these Spaniels genuinely enjoy each other?s company when in a group. Trainability is high and drive to please is strong, making this dog a excellent family pet, however due to their small population may be difficult to acquire.Said to be the larger version of the English Cocker Spaniel, this breed was redeveloped in the mid 20th century by crossing it with English Springers and Cocker Spaniels. Primarily an upland game dog, but because of its size it can also be used for woodcock as well.AVERAGE LITTER SIZE:8 puppies

HEIGHT: MALE : 18 in (46cm) - FEMALE : 17 in (44cm)WEIGHT: MALE : 50lbs (23kg) - FEMALE : 35lbs (16kg)
Grooming: 

Double coated with the topcoat medium in length, flat with a slight wave. Feathering on undercarriage ears and legs shouldn?t be too long. Moderate downy undercoat that needs moderate clipping and brushing.

They are good with children and get along well with other dogs and animals.

Trivia: 
Considerable difficulty was encountered in establishing the Field Spaniel in the United States due to the necessity for introducing Springer and Cocker crosses in order to eliminate the exaggerations. This rendered many dogs ineligible for registration with the AKC. (Credit:ÿ<a href="http://www.akc.org/">AKC.org</a>)
