English Springer Spaniel Characteristics
The English Springer Spaniel is a kind, lovable bird dog that has an abundance of energy and love to give. They're just as apt to chase down birds while hunting as they are to play with children in the backyard. These medium-sized dogs have a long, rich heritage that makes them an all-around popular breed.
Spaniel-type dogs are thought to have originated in Spain — hence their name. Spaniels have been used for centuries to flush birds and game out of bushes so they could be captured by nets or hunting hawks. This breed was dubbed the "Springer" Spaniel due to the way it jumps into the bush when chasing prey.
The English Springer Spaniel has an iconic profile and typically stands around 19-20 inches tall at the shoulder. Its double coat comes in black or white and requires regular grooming and frequent brushing. Bred to work well with humans, Springer Spaniels are highly trainable and loving creatures that want nothing more than to please the humans in their life.
This breed was developed to have great stamina and energy. Be sure that you can provide your dog with adequate exercise or he may become nervous and destructive. That said, their compact size makes them suitable apartment companions as long as you walk them frequently. Due to their breeding, a leash is necessary at all times; otherwise, they may be overcome with their desire to chase birds and small game.
Springer Spaniels are considered generally healthy dogs, but Spaniel ears are unique and require frequent inspection in order to prevent or contain ear infections.
How dog-friendly is Idaho?
We have to be honest that Idaho has some areas to improve in its dog-friendly status. But not to worry, the state does have some great highlights! It’s a stellar travel destination for people who travel with their pets and has some very dog-friendly cities.
Overall, the two leading studies rank Idaho as 36th and 47th for pet-friendliness. Since there are only 50 states, this isn’t the best. The studies compare states by their adherence to important factors like pet-friendly accommodations, access to pet services, animal cruelty laws, and even pet-friendly outdoor space.
Pawsafe, an animal welfare site, ranks Idaho 47th. Idaho lags behind other states mainly because of its lax animal cruelty laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.
Safewise, a safety review site, ranked Idaho a little bit higher as the 36th most pet-friendly state in the country. Combining these two studies together puts Idaho towards the middle of the pack of pet-friendly states.
