The American Water Spaniel is a purebred dog part of the sporting group. Also known as the Brown Water Spaniel, this doggo comes from the United States in the 1800s. Initially bred for bird flushing and retrieving, this pup is a great companion dog today. For instance, they’re eager, happy, and charming.

Where to get American Water Spaniel Puppies

As with all dogs, you can get this breed just about anywhere. First, however, you need to do your research.

If you decide to go through a reputable breeder, then you’ll be able to find ethical ones on the AKC Marketplace. In addition, you’ll be able to tell the good breeders from the rest because they’ll do the following:

  • Health screen and genetically test the parents to ensure it’s safe and healthy to breed them (and then get the puppies tested)
  • Have health documents and family tree history to give you to bring home upon adoption
  • Ensure the puppies are up to date on all of their vaccinations
  • Socialize and train the puppies as early as possible
  • Want to meet with you in person, allowing you to meet the dogs and get to know them as a breeder

In addition, the breeder will be open and honest. They’ll be able to answer all of your questions about the litter, the adoption process, the breeding process, the breed as a whole, and more. Kjaneb1…

If you come across a breeder that does not do the above, then you’ll want to avoid them. For example, they might be a backyard breeder or a puppy mill, so they don’t breed the dogs in healthy or safe conditions. Also, they’re most likely interested in making a profit rather than finding the puppies good homes.

Alternatively, you can call your local animal shelter or breed rescue organization. They might have American Water Spaniel puppies, adults, or seniors available for adoption. But, of course, it’s always a good idea to check here first to adopt and not shop.

The Cost

The average cost of American Water Spaniel puppies is between $1,200 to $1,800. However, the price may vary depending on the time of year, the breeder’s location or reputation, and the breed’s popularity. 

Appearance

American Water Spaniels are medium-sized dogs where females are slightly lighter than males. For example, they can grow between 15 to 18 inches tall. In addition, females should weigh between 25 and 40 pounds, while males should weigh between 30 and 45 pounds.

In addition, they have a curly, medium double coat. They typically have no markings on their coat but can have a brown, chocolate, or liver coat color. Eagle_outdoor…

Temperament

Even though American Water Spaniel puppies aren’t the most cuddly breeds, they are great family companion dogs. For example, they’re loyal and affectionate (on their terms) with their family members. In addition, they’re okay around young children, other dogs, and meeting new people. 

As with all dog breeds, this pup needs early socialization and training. Luckily, this dog breed is easy to train. They’re a great watchdog and will mostly only bark to alert you of something. However, they might be vocal at other times if they want to get your attention or are excited.

Finally, they have moderate energy levels. They’ll enjoy outdoor activities such as long walks, hikes, and swimming. So, they’ll do better living in a bigger house with a fenced-in yard rather than an apartment. 

American Water Spaniel Puppies – Veterinary Needs

You’ll want to bring your dog to the vet a few times for the first year. You’ll be able to keep them up to date on their vaccinations and also keep track of their growth and development. Every year after that, you can bring them to the vet once a year for their annual checkup.

For instance, this doggo is prone to some health issues, such as:

  • Mitral Valve Disease
  • Degenerative Myelopathy
  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Heart Disease
  • Distichitits
  • Lenticular Opacities

The American Water Spaniel has an average lifespan of about ten to 14 years with proper care.

Diet

As with all dogs, you can feed this doggo just about any dog food that your vet approves. Also, make sure the food is appropriate for your dog’s age, breed size, and weight. For instance, you can provide your dog with high-quality kibble or canned wet food from a commercial dog food brand or homemade dog food.

Grooming

To keep their curls looking clean and intact, you’ll want to bring them to a professional grooming salon once every other month. You can bathe them at home, but their coat is waterproof to help them swim to retrieve waterfowl.

Also, they might shed a little bit, so you’ll want to brush their coat at least once a week. This will keep it clean and looking nice. In addition, keep up with trimming their nails, brushing their teeth, and cleaning their ears regularly.
