Cocker Spaniel

Character and temperament

Cocker Spaniels are very intelligent and easy to train as they love to please. They will get on very well with children and other animals and love to be a part of the family.

Origin

England. They were originally used to flush out woodcock, hence the name.

General description

Cocker Spaniels have flat, silky coats and feathering on the legs. They come in a huge variety of colours.

Food

As with most Spaniels, Cockers can overeat if allowed. They require a good diet as puppies to ensure their bones develop properly.

Exercise

A good daily walk is recommended.

Grooming

Cockers need frequent trimming of their feathers and around their pads and ears. A thorough brush on a regular basis is required to keep their coats in good condition.
