The Boykin Spaniel is a hunting dog with a great disposition. As the state dog of South Carolina, this breed is an energetic dog breed who was often used for waterfowl hunting.
The Boykin Spaniel is usually seen with a dark brown coat and has a fluffy coat appearance. This dog breed is smaller in size and stands between 14 to 18 inches high at the shoulder.
Due to his energy and stamina, it is no wonder that the Boykin Spaniel needs a lot of time outdoors, especially if he is a house pet. This dog loves to be with family members and other pets due to his sheer desire for companionship. He is even better if the family who owns a Boykin Spaniel likes to get outside a lot and is always on the move. The Boykin Spaniel thrives on entertainment and fun.
Grooming the Boykin Spaniel is a bit more timely an activity than grooming other dogs as this breed has a fluffy, full coat. Brushing once or twice a week usually suffices, or on an as-needed basis. The occasional bath will also keep the Boykin Spaniel looking nice and keep the coat healthy overall. If the Boykin Spaniel is outside all day on a hunt, it is important to groom this dog to maintain the coat and get all of the mud and twig debris out of the fur.
Boykin Spaniels provide individuals with plenty of love and entertainment. They love to romp outdoors and play with kids as well as other dogs. If you are lucky enough to have a Boykin Spaniel in the home, you will enjoy many years of friendship and companionship.
