A brief history of the Breed
The French Spaniel has been derived from Spanish hunting dogs from the Middle Ages. They developed in France, to be used for hunting in the 14th century.

French Spaniels became popular with royalty in the Middle Ages. They were commonly used as a hunting dog, but by the 20th century had almost become extinct. Father Fournier, a French priest, saved the breed.

The French Spaniel was then imported to Canada in the 1970s, where it was used for hunting and later made its way to America in the 90s. Today French Spaniels are a relatively rare breed, even in their native France.

The Appearance of the Breed
The French Spaniel has a thick coat of brown and white fur. They are available in different shades of brown, from cinnamon to dark liver, and are always mottled with white. Their markings vary widely; some dogs are even completely brown or white.

French Spaniels have feathering on the backs of their legs, as well as on their belly, tail, and ears. They have shorter fur on their head. The breed isn’t thought to be allergy-friendly and does shed some fur regularly. These dogs are easy to groom because they are calm and gentle. They should be washed and groomed periodically and need to have their teeth cleaned as they can be prone to teeth and gum problems.

The French Spaniel’s thick fur is slightly water-resistant, and this helps to keep them warm even in cold and damp conditions. For this reason, they would make great hunting companions. They are loyal dogs who are eager to please and easy to train. They can retrieve waterfowl and can work on a variety of terrains. They are active and good swimmers.

French Spaniels also make great pets as they are gentle, but aren’t as affectionate as other breeds and won’t tolerate too many cuddles. They are good with kids, as they are calm and gentle.

The French Spaniel is considered a rare breed but was known as a designer breed that people wanted as pets fairly recently. For this reason they are many French Spaniels in rescue centers who need forever homes.
