Field Spaniel K9 Obedience Dog Breed Summary:

The Field Spaniel is an active, sporting dog that unlike most of the other gundogs, loves to be indoors as much as he does outside.

They are sociable, friendly and good with children although they can form strong bonds with one person.

The Field Spaniel can make a lot of noise so they need early training to stop barking on command.

Overall the Field Spaniel is a cheerful active dog for anyone that appreciates the fresh air and the outdoor country life.
