The Pont Audemer Spaniel comes from a variety of small, chestnut-brown spaniels that once lived in Normandy, and the Irish Water Spaniel, which gave it its tall size and strength. Nowadays, the breed is not very widespread and is only held by a few hunters in Normandy and Picardy. Very well suited for reed work, in swamps and in deep water, it works with great zeal in thickets and searches quickly and persistently. Its fur is practically waterproof, so it can stay there for a long time.
