American Water Spaniel
Not only is this dog a versatile hunter, it can also be a loving family pet. The American water spaniel is a sensitive breed that likes to please its owner. It is quite good with children and gets along well with most other family pets, including other dogs. At times it may be aggressive towards strange dogs. This dog does tend to bark, and some can whine or drool as well. Calm, persuasive training is important to this sensitive breed. It is important to socialize this dog with animals and people from the beginning to help prevent timidity later on. Because of its tendency to roam, it is important to let this breed off the lead in safe areas only.
