English Springer Spaniel Attractive features:
These are energetic dogs, distinguished by obedience and a penchant for sports (frisbee, etc.). They are not only good companions, but also talented hunters. They need daily exercise. Springer spaniels are great with children. For the protection of the territory and the pursuit of these dogs are not suitable. Careful examination of the puppy’s parents will allow you to conclude exactly what qualities your potential pet may later manifest.
Well-trained and trained dogs of this breed are great for living in sports families. English Springer Spaniels are gentle, intelligent, and grateful dogs. Obedience is peculiar to them. They will be committed to you and your family members, but keep in mind: such a “multi-power” with mutually exclusive teams can adversely affect a dog’s nervous system.
The most common diseases of the Springer Spaniels are abnormal development of the eyelids and iris, hip dysplasia, skin lesions and ear infections.
Sometimes they have the so-called rage syndrome. It does not have any characteristic neurological or behavioral symptoms. Rage syndrome occurs when a dog with foggy, unseeing eyes throws at people with absolutely no motivation. Such episodes last only a few seconds – after the attack ends, the dog behaves as before, as if nothing had happened: he was having fun, wagging his tail, and so on. More recently, the Springer spaniels were reported to have a deficiency of phospho-fructokinase, which was expressed as blanching. th gum, fever, loss of appetite and darkening of urine.
These dogs live 12-15 years.
