Additional information (Wiki):The French Spaniel is an intelligent dog that looks to please its owner. It does not take to a harsh handler. It responds well to positive treatment and repetitive lessons. As they mature, they become calm loving hunting companions and makes a wonderful house dog. As puppies and young dogs French Spaniels are like every other spaniel... High energy and exuberant. They need a place to run and exercise regularly and are not well adapted to small living quarters such as apartments.

The French Spaniel is a true versatile or multipurpose hunting dog that will pursue, point, track and retrieve game on land or water but like most pointing breeds the French Spaniel's true strength is hunting in the fields and forests. The French Spaniel is a medium to close working pointing dog that works at a very comfortable pace and distance. The gait is considered easy, supple, regular and energetic while remaining elegant. They are a tough, determined dog that can adapt to all types of terrain.

The French Spaniel was known in the 14th century, when is was used for net hunting and falconry. For net hunting the dog would point with a low elongated, setting style which would make it easier for the hunter to throw the net over the dog.

There was a time in the 19th century when the French Spaniel was on the verge of extinction. However, a French priest gathered the remaining French Spaniels in his kennels. There he built the lineages that are representatives of those we now have. The French Spaniel is thought to be related to a number of other hunting breeds. There is some speculation that outcrosses of the French Spaniel make it the cousin of the Small Munsterlander and the Drentse Patrijshond. Also, the Brittany Spaniel is said to be the progeny of pairings with English Setters and French Spaniels.
