The English Springer Spaniel is one of America's best-loved dogs. This exciting edition of the breed classic is for all friends of show field-bred, and pet Springers alike. This description may be from another edition of this product.
This book makes anyone proud to be owned by an ESS. The late Mrs. Gasow was a true conniseur of Springers. She was, after all, "related" to Robert, Ch. Salilyn's Condor, who blew away competition at any dog show he ever entered, as did his granddaughter, Samantha. I am extremely proud to say that our Springer has Salilyn lines. The pictures alone make the book a worthwhile purchase!
A Valuable Breed Information Book
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 23 years ago
In my opinion, this book is a wonderful resource of information on English Springer Spaniels. Many people are not aware that there are 2 types of Springers, field and bench. This book clearly details and illustrates the differences between the 2 lines, therefore allowing people to determine which type of Springer best suits their life. The only information I found missing was a section on health concerns related to Springers. I would recommend this book for potential Springer owners and current owners alike.
excellent book; full of pedigree information

Lots of pedigree information; excellent to trace lines of "good" spaniels; good information on field dogs; about half the book on field and half on show dogs;
Great section on field springers, kennels, training

Great book for someone interested in researching field springers. Bench, obedience sections are weak.
