The ones i’ve met, are bonkers, but all spaniels are!,
We’ve a working cocker, people comment how chilled he is, but I think it’s more to do with how you treat/act around then. He is our first dog.
Expose them to as much as possible, going out into town, other dogs, weekends away and they soon work out when they can go nuts!
Spaniels are ace! 😀Posted 4 years agoRusty SpannerSubscriber
Youngest daughter has just got one, a friend has two.
Not mad at all – highly intelligent, well behaved dogs, but they do take quite a bit of training to get them that way.
If you want one, why not get one?
Need a hell of a lot of walking and if either parent is a working dog, even more then that. 😀
Cockers and Springers were originally the same breed, so no inherent problems with the cross.Posted 4 years agomoonsaballoonMember
We have a springer lab cross who is brilliant . My mate has a springer and ours is jut a little bit calmer i think . Ours gets on average an hours walk a day ( 1 big one or 2 smaller ones )but she is also happy with a day with the back door open and pottering around but she has that spaniel part which just runs and runs .

Not all spaniels are mental. Most of the stringers I know are perfectly calm. Can be manic but theyre mostly chilled. A friend of ours has a sprocker and its asleep most of the time. Until you get out then its all go. Same as my springer to be honest. I think it’s all down to their training. If you don’t do any they can get a bit unruly.Posted 4 years ago
I know lots of other dogs of lots of breeds all of which are significantly more mental than my springer is. She hangs around my shop with me for most of the day and you’d barely know she was there.graham of redmarleyMember
Had spaniels now for nigh on 25 yearsPosted 4 years ago
Current pair Welsh Springers.
Cracking dogs great with the kids, are fine as long as they aren’t bored.
Train them well to whistle & hand signals & should be OK. Just don’t let them run riot from an early age & avoid running uo & down stairs early on in life.
