Land Spaniels (Sporting)
Cocker SpanielSpaniels historically flushed the game so the huntsmen could shoot it, working ahead of the huntsmen. As described in the History of Spaniels, they were descended from dogs used for 'Fowling'. Then with the advent of the gun, the many different breeds we know today began to emerge. Today, the different breeds of spaniels make excellent family companions as they are medium sized, require only moderate exercise and are easy to train.
