A working spaniel is a type of spaniel that has been bred and trained for various types of work, typically in the context of hunting or field trials. Spaniels, in general, are a type of dog breed that has been historically used for hunting game birds. Working spaniels, including breeds like the English Springer Spaniel, Cocker Spaniel, and others, are valued for their intelligence, agility, and keen sense of smell.
While many working spaniels have a strong work ethic, they often make excellent family companions. They are known for their friendly and sociable nature, making them good pets in addition to their working roles.
