About the French Spaniel

Balanced, frank, calm and docile, French Spaniels are enthusiastic when it comes to hunting, sociable with other dogs and ideal companions in all circumstances.

Dogs of this medium-sized breed are elegant and muscular, with well-proportioned bodies that exude the appropriate energy and hardiness. Strong-boned without being heavy.
