About the German Spaniel

German Spaniels are lively and very enthusiastic hunters. Friendly and self-assured in their natural environment, biddable and highly adaptable, they are never timid or aggressive, keeping close to the trail over long distances, especially when trained and handled appropriately.

German Spaniels are medium-sized, long-haired flushing dogs with very well-developed muscles, solid bones and a noble head.
