Cocker Spaniel Characteristics
The typical Cocker Spaniel is a gentle, loving, and trustworthy family companion who is good with children, other pets, and the elderly. A classic companion, this dog is just as suited to be a couch potato in a high-rise condo as they are an adventure buddy and running partner.
The Cocker Spaniel spent years as America's most popular dog breed due to its lovable personality and regal appearance. Typically standing around 14-15 inches and weighing around 24-28 pounds, they're the perfect mid-size companion for hunting, running, or just hanging out. Their even temperament makes them a perfect family dog, but remember, the Cocker was bred to be a hunting dog. Don't be surprised when they chase birds or other small animals while out on a walk.
Disney did not have to think hard when figuring out which breed should play "Lady" in "Lady and the Tramp"; the elegant appearance of the Cocker Spaniel is enjoyed by all, but be aware of the time required for proper upkeep. Keeping the iconic brown or black Cocker coat beautiful is expensive and a lot of work, so plan on paying a professional groomer and brushing the coat regularly. The ears on a Cocker Spaniel are also a common site for infection, so make sure to check them weekly.
A dog that has been actively bred for so long is more prone to health issues, so make sure to do some research and purchase your Cocker Spaniel from a reputable breeder to ensure a long and healthy life.
