The Welsh Springer is a compact, strong and symmetrical dog with a silky coat that is straight, thick and of medium length with moderate feathering on the legs, chest and underside of the body. His coat is rich red and white in colour.

The Welsh Springer Spaniel is a very sociable, cheerful, and friendly creature. This is a dog that makes for a great family pet and companion, suiting both the experienced and the inexperienced dog owner. These dogs are highly intelligent, quick to learn, responsive, and eager to please, all of which adds up to easier training. They are good natured dogs, with plenty of loyalty, affection, and love to give. The Welsh Springer Spaniel loves to be around his family, and enjoys interactive play and activity. He is a tactile dog, and is fully of sloppy licks and kisses for his loved ones. This is not a dog for those that want an aloof pet, or for those with little time to dedicate to their pet. The Welsh Springer Spaniel is very attentive, but also very sensitive, so training methods must always be calm and positive.

He is a loyal, devoted and affectionate family member. Gentle with children and other animals, he also makes a good watchdog who always announces visitors. Originally bred as a flushing spaniel to hunt rabbits, birds and other small game, he is built for endurance and has an active nature.

The Welsh Springer Spaniel was originally called the Welsh Cocker and was renamed in 1902. The Welsh Springer and English Springer Spaniel are entirely different breeds and not "varieties" of a Springer Spaniel. The Welsh Springer's history dates back as far as 7000 BC, when the first hunting dogs were used by man. These were likely the ancestors of most of today's domestic hunting dogs. Tapestries from the Renaissance era depict a dog very similar to the Welsh Springer. The breed was first imported into North America in the late 1800s and was recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1906.
If you are considering a Welsh Springer Spaniel puppy, or any breed, it is very important to be selective in choosing a responsible and reputable breeder. Ensure that the prospective puppy's parents have all health clearances. Breeding of any dog should not be done until after they have been proven to be free of evidence of significant hereditary diseases.
