The Welsh Springer Spaniel is an ancient breed and one that has been depicted in works of art that date back to the 16th century. They were originally bred to hunt game and were commonly seen in Wales as well as in the west of England where they were also used to drive cattle and to herd flocks of sheep. However, centuries later these hardworking, loyal dogs became popular in other regions of the country and soon became highly prized gundogs. There are some people who believe Welsh Springer Spaniels were crossed with Corgis at some point in time.

Welsh Springer Spaniels proved to be extremely versatile dogs that boasted a strong hunting instinct when asked to "spring or start" game. By the 19th and 20th centuries, they became popular in other countries of the world which included America, Australia and India. They were originally called Welsh Cockers, but when the breed was recognised by The Kennel Club in 1902, their name was changed to Welsh Springer Spaniel.

Today, these charming dogs are gaining popularity with people who are looking to share their homes with an energetic, loyal and intelligent companion and one that enjoys being in the great outdoors with their owners whenever they can.
