Spaniels are flushing breeds and their primary purpose
is to hunt, find, flush and return birds to hand as quickly as possible in a pleasing and obedient manner.
Judges evaluate the performance of each spaniel entered according to a specific scoring system based on their natural ability to hunt, find game, flush, and retrieve.
Judges also score a spaniel’s work in the field based on their learned abilities – range, pattern, gun response and response to commands.
Spaniels can be tested at three different levels: Junior, Senior and Master.
