A relatively new breed, the Boykin Spaniel is a skilled and intelligent hunting dog. This medium-sized spaniel originates in the United States, where it was (and continues to be) used as a hunting dog in the lakes and swamps of South Carolina. The Boykin is typically a rich brown or liver color, and has beautiful amber eyes. The Boykin is also a strong swimmer, a loveable, loyal companion, and a quick learner. They form strong attachments to their owners and excel at anything from therapy to field trials and obedience.

Clumber Spaniel’s origin has a romantic story. During the French Revolution in 1788, the French Duc de Noailles shipped his entire kennel of Spaniels to the Duke of Newcastle in England in order to save his dogs. The Clumber’s name comes from the Duke’s estate, Clumber Park in Nottingham. Clumbers are sweet, gentle, and love everyone around them. This breed is not a barker; most of the time, they tend to be quiet at home. They will alert you if they feel danger, but they are not good watchdogs. Clumbers and small children get along well like ice cream and cake. They love kids, especially those who play fetch with them. They also love to steal food from small kids, so proper training is required. Clumbers get along well with other animals too, especially if they were raised together. Clumber has a moderate energy level; daily walks are required. The size of the Clumber Spaniel is about 1 foot 5 inches to 1 foot 8 inches, and the weight is about 55 to 85 pounds.
Cocker Spaniels come from Spain, and were originally bred to hunt gamebirds. These dogs have beautiful, silky hair and a happy, sweet disposition that makes them excellent family dogs. Cocker Spaniels are incredibly gentle, and are a perfect mix of docile and playful. Medium-small in size, the long, fluffy ears and large, kind eyes of a Cocker Spaniel give it an adorable, warm look. These dogs would do well in an apartment or in a larger home.
English Springer Spaniels have long been considered a quintessential hunting dog. The oldest spaniel breed, Springer Spaniels were used to “spring” game out of its hiding spots when hunting. These dogs are driven and hard-working, love to swim and are loving, affectionate pets. Springers are cheerful, loyal dogs, wonderful with children and highly trainable and intelligent.
English Cocker was originally bred to find, flush, and retrieve game birds during hunting time. The English Cocker Spaniel is slightly taller than long. This breed has still kept his hunting instinct, so they require lots of daily exercise. Cocker Spaniel is loyal, cheerful, devoted, and sensitive. They like to stay close to their human family. They are perfect for young children and adventurous for adults. English Cocker is very friendly with other pets and even with strangers. They make very good watchdogs, but they are not a good choice for protection dogs. Their coat needs to be brushed two-three times a week. The English Cocker’s size is 14 to 17 inches, and their weight is 26 to 32 pounds.
