English Cocker Spaniel

The cocker spaniel has remained one of the most popular breeds for many decades. But few Americans are aware that from the worldwide perspective, the well-known cocker spaniel is the English cocker. The English cocker spaniel is a practical house dog – small enough, affectionate and moderately protective. But he is also energetic and large enough to be a hardy gun dog. Designed for going into and under thick brush, most are natural retrievers and enjoy water. The English cocker is a versatile breed and an ambitious owner may find enjoyment in the show ring, obedience, agility, tracking and hunting.
