Description

The Cocker Spaniel is a much beloved breed and rightfully so! The smallest of the Sporting Group, it is a very wise breed with a sturdy, compact body and a cleanly chiseled and refined head, really just an ideal size. The Cocker Spaniel is capable of considerable speed and great endurance. Its medium length, silky coat comes in black, liver, red, gold, tan and tri-color. They are sweet, charming and cheerful but should be trained as a puppy. The Cocker Spaniel can become shy and/or aggressive if not socialized well and given its daily walk and mental stimulation. The breed comes in two varieties: the English Cocker Spaniel and American Cocker Spaniel. Originally bred for hunting, today's Cocker Spaniel is really more of a loving, caring family companion. 

Disposition

  • The Cocker Spaniel is highly sensitive, very keen to obey instructions and wants to be taught right from wrong at an early age.
  • They have a wonderfully cheerful demeanor and love staying indoors,
  • though - owing to their energy level - should be given daily walks.
  • The Cocker Spaniel is a very loving and pleasing dog with a "soft" personality so harsh training methods will make it fearful:  use gentle, consistent training to get the best results.
