English Springer Spaniels are a highly intelligent breed of dogs. The English Springer Spaniel is not only incredibly smart, but these Gundogs respond excessively well to obedience training. The only downfall to the English Springer Spaniel's intelligence is that if English Springer Spaniels are left alone without any company or mental stimulation for long frequent periods of time, they may actually become quite destructive canines. On average though, the English Springer Spaniel is a loving gentle dog breed that can make a wonderful family pet and are good dogs with children.
The English Springer Spaniel requires considerable amounts of exercise on pretty much a daily basis. This is definitely not a dog breed for someone who tends to lead a lazy lifestyle. If you're one who loves the outdoors, going for daily jogs, or daily walks around the park, the English Springer Spaniels could possibly suite your lifestyle and living needs really well. These English Gundogs love to go out for a good game of catch and can even play ball for hours due to their high levels of stamina.
