Boykin Spaniels are known for their hunting abilities, but they are as good companions for families as they are for hunters, thanks to their intelligence and friendly confidence. However, the family must be active; this dog needs plenty of exercise. Although these are purebred dogs, you may find them in the care of shelters or rescue groups. Remember to adopt. Don’t go shopping if you want to take a dog home. These intelligent pups love the human members of their families, including children. They can even get along with other dogs in the house with proper socialization. However, their high energy may not make them a good choice for apartment dwellers. Intelligent and playful, these dogs need a lot of physical and mental stimulation to be happy. If you can keep up with an active puppy, this may be the breed for you.
Bred by South Carolinians to hunt turkey and waterfowl in the state’s marshes, the medium-sized brown dog encompasses the best of the spaniel’s talents and personality: The ability to flush and retrieve, a willingness to work, attractive floppy ears, and a friendly tail wag. In addition to being a great hunting dog in a convenient size, he is alert, confident and intelligent, all of which also make him an excellent family companion. He gets along well with other dogs and children and adapts to training like a duck to a June bug.
