The Field Spaniel is a British breed of dog, and one of the oldest of the spaniel breeds. The breed was once common as a gun dog, but declined in popularity after the First World War and became extinct by the early 1970s. A few enthusiasts began to breed the dogs again, and the breed was recognised by The Kennel Club in 1986. It remains relatively rare.

The Field Spaniel is descended from the English Cocker Spaniel and shares many characteristics with that breed. It is a small to medium-sized dog, with a compact body and short legs. The coat is flat or wavy, with feathering on the ears, legs and tail. Black is the most common colour, but brown, liver or roan are also seen.

The Field Spaniel was first recognised as a distinct breed in 1894, when it was given its own classification by The Kennel Club in Britain. Prior to this, it had been considered a type of Cocker Spaniel. The first Field Spaniel club was founded in 1902.

The breed declined rapidly in popularity after the First World War, due to a combination of factors including fashion (short-legged dogs were no longer fashionable), competition from other breeds such as the Labrador Retriever and Golden Retriever, and poor breeding which led to health problems such as epilepsy. By the early 1970s, there were thought to be only six dogs left alive in Britain; all were related to each other.

A few enthusiasts began breeding Field Spaniels again in the 1970s and 1980s; one breeder imported dogs from America where some had been kept alive by fanciers there. The breed was successfully re-established and recognised by The Kennel Club in 1986; it remains relatively rare with around 300 puppies being born each year in Britain
