A medium-sized sporting dog with a compact body and docked tail, the ESS is well-proportioned and free from exageration. His coat is of medium-length with a glossy appearance and sufficiently dense to be waterproof and weatherproof. He has some feathering on the ears, chest, legs and belly. His coat may be liver or black with white markings, liver and white with tan markings, black and white with tan markings, blue or liver roan, or predominantly white with tan, black or liver markings. His pendulous ears, soft gentle expression, sturdy build and friendliness make him an unmistakable member of the family of spaniels.

Active, intelligent, and eager to please, the English Springer Spaniel is a dog that loves the companionship and affection of his family, and is a real people person with strong social skills when properly socialized. He is a quick learner which makes him easy to obedience train. The English Springer Spaniel has plenty of energy and spirit, and loves to play and exercise. Some English Springer Spaniel can be overly boisterous at times, and others can be overly dependant to the point where they become clingy, so early training is essential as is the need to teach the dog to be independent. These dogs do not like being neglected, and being left along for long periods can result in destructive behavior and anxiety, so this is not the right dog for those that are away for long periods and do not have the time to commit to a pet.

The English Springer Spaniel gets along well with children, particularly when raised with them, and is also good with other pets. He is a sociable dog and will get along well with most strangers, although some English Springer Spaniels may be more reserved around strangers than others. These dogs are faithful, devoted, and loyal, and they do have a protective streak that means they will make noise to alert his owners to possible danger, making him an effective watchdog. The sweet nature and high intelligence of the English Springer Spaniel makes him well suited to the more inexperienced dog owner as well as the experienced.

The English Springer Spaniel is one of the oldest spaniel variations around, and originates from England. They were bred to spring game, such as pheasants, into the air for hunters, thus gaining the name Springer Spaniel. The breed was registered with the AKC in 1910.
The lifespan of the English Springer Spaniel is around 12 years, and there are a number of health problems that may be associated with this breed. This includes ectropion, glaucoma, retinal problems, vWD, SAS, HD, PRA, and epilepsy. Thyroid problems, allergies, and skin conditions can also affect the breed. Parents of the English Springer Spaniel puppy should have OFA and CERF certificates.
