Our Springer Doodle was a great family pet. He was a breeze to housebreak and took to puppy training and socialization well. He was a little suspicious of strange children and animals, but once familiar with them was entirely safe and easy-going around them. He was affectionate, playful, and generally a pleasure to be around. He loved toys and was quite a clown.
He did require regular grooming to keep the tangles under control and regular exercise to keep his energy in check. I can't say that he was much of a guard dog, but he was pretty watchful of his surroundings and would alert us to any interesting goings-on around the neighborhood.
I would recommend a Springer to anyone looking for a good family pet with lots of love.
