A little about Welsh Springer Spaniels

The Welsh Springer Spaniel is devoted and affectionate to their family but can be reserved with strangers. They are energetic and prone to wander, so exercise and training from an early age is crucial. 



The Welsh Springer Spaniel is generally a healthy breed. Like many spaniels, they are prone to ear infections (Otitis Externa) and are predisposed to Canine Hip (and sometimes Elbow) Dysplasia. Less commonly they can develop Cataracts, Glaucoma, Epilepsy and Hypothyroidism.
