English Springer Spaniels are highly intelligent, happy, and people-oriented, making the Springer an ideal companion for people in urban to rural settings. Springers are extremely affectionate, loyal dogs and require daily love and attention from their human companions.
As a hunting breed, they are quite intelligent and alert. While quite energetic as younger dogs, older Springers are usually happy to just share time and space with their owner. They are less demanding in terms of daily exercise and are great "people dogs."
