Appearance
A medium sized dog, the Field Spaniel is a sturdy build, and is a handsome dog with an intelligent and eager expression. The coat of the Field Spaniel is long, flat, and glossy, with a beautiful, silky appearance and texture. As with other spaniels, his long silky ears hang to the side of his head, framing his face perfectly. The coloring of the Field Spaniel can vary and includes liver, black, and speckled roan, and some may have tan markings. The weight of the Field Spaniel is around 35-50 pounds, and the height is around 17 inches for females and 18 inches for males
 

Temperament
A noble, docile, and graceful dog, the Field Spaniel is a breed that is responsive, intelligent, and affectionate. These dogs have a gentle nature and are eager to please, keen, and enthusiastic, with plenty to offer as family pets. A very active and energetic breed, the Field Spaniel loves to play, exercise, and join in with all sorts of activities, such as running, hiking, biking, and more. He is the ideal exercise companion as well as a good family pet, although his love of play means that he may be prone to getting himself messy and then traipsing mud and mess through the house! A very sociable and friendly breed, the Field Spaniel is well suited to the more inexperienced dog owner as well as the experienced.

Field Spaniels love people, and will get on well with children, especially when raised with them - although he does not like to handled roughly so care should be taken around younger, more boisterous children. He will also get along well with other pets, and should be fine around strangers. Some Field Spaniels can be very independent, so confidence and assertiveness is needed in training. However, training should be fairly easy with this breed, as these dogs are intelligent, eager to learn, and obedient. The Field Spaniel is well suited to family life, and makes for a good family pet with a stable and well balanced nature.

 
History
Until 1892, both the English Cocker and the Field Spaniel were classified as "Field Spaniels," divided by weight. Field Spaniels under 25 lbs were considered Cockers and Field Spaniels over 25 lbs were considered Field. In 1892, the two became distinct breeds under their present names.
 
Health
The life expectancy of the Field Spaniel is around 10-12 years, and there are a number of health issues relating to this breed, although Field Spaniels are largely a healthy and hardy breed. Some of the health problems to look out for include cataracts, thyroid problems, PRA, and HD. Parents of the Field Spaniel puppy should have OFA and CERF certificates.
