American Water Spaniel

Must Try

Matilda double majored in zoology and animal behavior at the University of Hawaii. She’s been an animal lover from a young age and knew she wanted to study them even more for her career. She’s always looking for ways to spread her animal knowledge.

If you are looking into getting a pet for your household, an American Water Spaniel would be an excellent choice. If you don’t know anything about it, then now is a perfect time to become more familiar with this particular type of animal. Once you have learned a little more about these animals, then you can make the decision on if it’s right for your family.

What They Like to Do and Eat

The American Water Spaniel is a type of dog, and there are certain things they love to do and eat.

  • Bananas: It may seem odd, but bananas are the perfect go-to treat for this kind of dog. You probably shouldn’t feed them too many bananas because all American water spaniels are different.
  • Swim: Most dogs hate the water, but these types of dogs are very good swimmers and will happily rescue you if you need help.
  • Hunting: They love to hunt with their owners. They have amazing scents and can pick up on almost anything once they are trained to do so. They are very good at being able to tell where birds are.

Not only are American Water Spaniels good hunting and swimming dogs, but they are also pretty stubborn as well, and they love the outdoors. They are known as very energetic dogs. They can live anywhere from 13-15 years and usually stay pretty small. Their average height is between 15 and 18 inches. They adore people and are very friendly towards anyone. This would be the perfect dog for your family.

  1. Is it possible to learn about the health records of a Water Spaniel’s parents? Love its floppy ears and curly fur. Purchased two cocker spaniels back in 2004, brothers from the same liter. One died at age four from Hepitis, the smaller of the two, had frequent ear infections and ear surgery (separately) on each ear in January 2010. In 2014, he suffered from an auto-immune disease. Fortunately, he survived, but there were frequent medical appointments. He passed at age 14 in 2018. Although we have had a total of four cocker spaniels over a long period of time, we are hesitant to continue with floppy ear dogs.
    I admire the American Water Spaniel, but don’t think we can accommodate the hunting and swimming needs. He sounds like a wonderful dog.
