    Four Categories of Springers

  • "There is the natural hunter and almost instinctive quarterer which will hunt the ground regardless of whether there is any scent of game thereon."
  • "The second category lacks the instinctive natural quartering of the former group".
  • "There is a third group of spaniels which initially has no desire to hunt at all."
  • "The fourth group is quite the most difficult of all. A Springer of this persuasion,
    upon being let off the lead, bolts off in a straight line until it reaches the far
    boundary of the field, the proceeds to self-hunt up and down the boundary fence."
