Spaniels are sporting dogs used by hunters to flush game from cover. The earliest spaniels apparently originated in Spain, hence the name, but most of the modern breeds were developed in Britain. The distinction between spaniel breeds originally was one of size, the larger spaniels being called "springers" and the smaller ones "cockers" —the latter apparently in reference to their use in flushing woodcocks.
