    I'm not a spaniel expert at all so may get these all wrong but my guess:

    1: Springer
    2: Clumber
    3. Cocker (working?)
    4: Portuguese/Spanish water spaniel

    Ooh, I got one wrong - I checked possible coat colours after my guess and it doesn't come in brown. Another type of spaniel popped into my brain - one of those times when you didn't even know that you know something - I checked, and I was correct.

    But I'm not saying which or what;)

    Yay! Could 1 be a Brittany spaniel? But I've exhausted the types of spaniels I've heard of now. I'm sure there's one beginning with H.... Harris?

    I thought so - I've checked and I don't think a Harris spaniel even exists!

    1, Working type Cocker. Maybe a Field spaniel though!
    2. Sussex Spaniel.
    3, Field spaniel. (a show type one ! )
    4, Irish water Spaniel.
    It can all depend whether the pictures are of working types or show types, at times they can be quiet difficult to tell apart.
    AND Josie, you have picked all liver coloured ones to make it much more difficult !!:eek:

    But I still think the chocky wocker lookalike is something like a Boykin? (American rare breed?) It is a working cocker but not as we know it.

    Must say, I like looking at the photos and reading peoples sugestions, but I do not have enough experience with gundogs to add anything usefull.
