I'd say an English Cocker would work well for you, especially if you are drawn to spaniels.

If you're worried Brittanys and ESS might be too high energy for you, definitely Viszlas, Weims and GSPs would be too much.

Welsh Springer? The one's I've met have been pretty calm dogs especially compared to the English springers.

Vizsla's are still very much oriented to what they were originally bred for, which is hunting. From what I have done research wise about them, if they don't get at least 2 hours of good exercise, mental and physical, you will have a dog that will drive you nuts. This is the dog that my DH is getting in about 3-5 or so years (assuming one doesn't plant itself into our life unexpectedly).
is a good place to start if you are seriously looking into them.

I was looking into an ESS before I got my Boxer. I love them, I just don't have a good job for them. They sound like they would be a better fit than the V or the GSP. Oh, and a lot of V people are extremely protective of their breed... some breeders won't sell a dog to a household that doesn't plan on using them for hunting.
