History of The Welsh Springer Spaniel

The Welsh Springer Spaniel was originated from the English springer/cocker speniel. Eventually, Renaissance hunters began to seperate the water spaniels from the land spaniels and by the late 1800s the Welsh speniel was a seperate breed from the other spaniels. Today the spaniels are still used as hunting dogs that find and spring at game. They also make good companion dogs if well trained.
