This website is devoted to hunting dogs, and a main part of that will be categorizing the place of each of the breeds within the hunting dog types.
GUN DOGS (sporting dogs) are classified into the following FIVE GROUPS.
- Flushing Spaniels
- Water dogs
The previous blackdogoutfitters article discusses many of the wonderful characteristics of the spaniel. This article is mostly about defining the breeds that make up this unique hunting group.
You will notice that the majority of the group were created in England and France ELEVEN out of the total of TWENTY TWO spaniel dogs.
There are many theories about the evolution of the spaniel suffice to say that at least the development of them was strongly practiced for hunting in England and France and that America only has three AKC recognized spaniels that are much newer than their European counter parts.
