Category Irish Water Spaniel

The Irish Water Spaniel is a unique and playful breed, known for its curly, waterproof coat and distinct “rat tail.” It’s the tallest member of the spaniel family, often standing up to 24 inches high at the shoulder. This breed originated in Ireland and was primarily used as a hunting and retrieving dog. They are highly intelligent, agile, energetic pets that require regular exercise. Despite their fun-loving personality, they can be somewhat reserved and do well with early socialization.
