RUSSIAN SPANIEL

History

Russian Spaniel is a type of Spaniel developed and standardized in the year 1951 by USSR during the Second World War. They are the result of breeding different Spaniel breeds in that period. Russian Spaniels do resemble the Cocker Spaniel but instead, have a tight and compact body. Extremely popular in the Russian subcontinent, this breed internationally became famous in the 1990s.

Temperament & Personality

The devotion and dedication which the Russian Spaniel disposes towards its owner are amazing. These dogs also make an excellent house pet despite them initially bred as a farm dog. They are great with small children and even a reliable watchdog. This breed does fine in apartment life, provided they get an open space. Considered occasional barkers, they can become wary if they come across unfamiliar faces suddenly.

Care

Exercise

With strong stamina, these dogs need regular exercises to keep mentally and physically fit. Daily walks or a playtime session with other dogs will add to keep the dog healthy. A game of hunting in the wild will satisfy their need for physical activity.

Grooming

Considered a low shedder, these dogs need minimal grooming and maintenance. Brushing once every two weeks will keep the coat matt-free and clean.

Health Problems

Other than some common health issues, these dogs are considered to be a healthy breed. A thing to be kept in mind is that these dogs are prone to get food allergies.

Training

Since they are devotional and obedient pets, the trainer can use this trait of them to make the overall training session much more comfortable for the trainer. Leash training is an excellent option to prevent the dog from chasing small animals and birds. Commands like fetch, come and stop should be used during the Obedience training.

Feeding

As the Russian Spaniels are prone to get obese easily, the diet should be full of other nutrients and less of fats and carbohydrates.
