    just trying to list all of the worlds Spaniels
    -in no particular order

    Clumber
    Field
    Sussex
    Epagneul Breton
    English Springer
    Welsh Springer
    English Cocker
    American Cocker
    Tibetan
    French
    Pont Audemer
    Picardy
    Blue Picardy
    Epagneul de St. Usuge
    Cav. King Charles
    King Charles
    Irish Water
    American Water
    Boykin

    possibles:
    Kooikerhondje
    American Brittany

    Just wondering because a man at the quarry today asked about Sadie and after telling him he said “oh that makes 8 Spaniels then, we were just listing them all the other day”  😉

    the brittany used to be called the brittany spaniel – i don’t know if that still counts as its full name?

    Ya, I’m not sure about that. That’s why i listed it under possibles. I think in America they’ve dropped the ‘spaniel’

    The Kooiker is also known as the Dutch Decoy Spaniel but I don’t know if that makes it officially a spaniel  ???

    this says six of the eight SPORTING spaniel breeds originated in britain. so maybe that was the eight.

    cos the bluepic and brittany are called spaniels but are HPRs aren’t they? and the cav etc are toys.

    i am presuming the british sporting ones are cocker, eng springer, welsh springer, clumber, sussex and field, and that the irish water is counted as another – from ireland. not sure about 8th though. american water???

    Very true Suz, but I think when most people think spaniel they think Cocker, so there are a lot of dogs on that list that don’t look like spaniels.  Almost everyone thinks Sadie is some sort of Setter.

    dont have a problem with sadie being a spaniel – nor most of the others, but tibetan – i do lol!

    The functional designation of each dog doesn’t matter, a spaniel can be a flusher, a pointer, an HPR, a toy etc
    I think they list the American Cocker as the 8th. If the American Cocker is a sporting dog then I’m a Tour de France winner  😉

    well exactly – assuming you haven’t won the tour de france.  😀

    that’s why i thought maybe american water. :-\ i know the am cocker is in the gundog group here but to me it’s a toy – surely they would get hung up in brambles and bracken with that coat.  :-\

    Hmm, not sure about that one either. I’ll put it in the possibles.  Good one Foxy! Thanks!  8)

    quote :

    The Germans classify the Wachtelhund as a Stoberhund, hund meaning — dog. In English stober translates to — to rummage about (if you think about it most dogs started hunting in this manner.) The Germans classify all other flushers as Spaniels and separate from the Stober dog category.

    The Wachtelhund is the last of the Stobers
