BREED DETAILS

GENERAL
The English Cocker Spaniel or Cocker Spaniel gets its name from the woodcock, a bird that hides in dense thickets and for whom this spaniel was originally bred to hunt. The different types of English Cocker Spaniels were separated into seven breeds; the Clumber, the Sussex, the Field, the English Springer, the Welsh Springer, the Irish Water Spaniel, and the Cocker. The English Cocker Spaniel is a hardy, alert and energetic breed, known as a lovable, sweet and affectionate dog.

COLOR
The English Cocker Spaniel colors are white appearing in combination with solid black, black and tan, liver or red markings, orange, or lemon.

COAT
The Medium-length coat is silky and smooth. Short on head, medium-long on body.

PERSONALITY
The Medium-length coat is silky and smooth. Short on head, medium-long on body.

CARE
Prone to occasional ear problems his long ears require regular care and attention, especially during the summer. Clean out excess wax and check for ticks and signs of infection. They may also suffer from PRA (progressive retinal atrophy) and rage syndrome. His fine smooth coat required regular grooming and it may be necessary to take the dog to an occasional professional trimming. Regular combing and brushing of the coat is required, as the coat is prone to tangles. Bathe or dry shampoo as necessary.

TRAINING
Naturally willing to learn and with a real desire to please the English Cocker Spaniel breed is widely easy to train and quickly understands what is expected of it. Males tend to be more cooperative than females who are fairly dominant. Cockers should be handled with gentleness and firmness as they are sensitive but also independent, otherwise it may try to take over your role. The talents of this breed are hunting, tracking, watch dogging, agility, competitive obedience and he was also utilized for retrieving game from the water.

ACTIVITY
If it is sufficiently exercised the English Cocker Spaniels will do okay in an apartment life, but they do best when he gets plenty of outdoor exercise in an average-sized fenced yard. He enjoys country walks, swimming, fetching a ball and as much exercise as you can give it.
