Irish Water Spaniels are so confident, they're bold. Although they're generally friendly dogs, they often bond closely with one person. They need a lot of exercise including swimming, if possible. They're suspicious of strangers, and sometimes aggressive with other dogs.
Irish Water Spaniels are sporting dogs. In general, sporting dogs are active and alert and require daily exercise. Because they have superior instincts in the water and woods, sporting dogs are often used for hunting. If exercised and properly trained, most sporting dogs make excellent pets.
